As you see in the images shown below, I have a method of doing my design work:
The first step is to put together the main elements. The second step is to link the elements together to create the whole of the jewelry piece. Sometimes this would mean taking things apart, and re-arranging them. This may be to have the jewelry piece an appropriate length, or for aesthetic reasons.
Either way, the ends do justify the means! As you see here:
I will sometimes compare the design of a new piece to other jewelry that I have either completed or am in process of completion. Consistency in the design will be my own particular “style”.
