If you’ve been planning an original piece of jewellery, don’t let the lockdown get in the way. We are still designing jewellery for customers all over the world, and we’d love to help you make progress with your design.
Here, we share our top tips for finding jewellery inspiration during the lockdown.
From your garden to your daily exercise route, the outdoors offers an array of colour combinations, textures, styles and shapes for you to consider. So next time you’re outside, take a closer look at what’s around you. You may be inspired by the shape of a leaf, the colour of a particular flower, or the delicate nature of a bee’s wings (poetic we know!).
This might sound obvious, but your home is normally a great reflection of who you are and what you like. If you’re designing jewellery for yourself or someone you live with, take note of the general style of your house. Is it industrial, with lots of metal, angles and deep warm colours? Is it contemporary, with bright shiny surfaces and copper details? Is it country elegance, with soft colours and intricate furniture? All of these details can help inspire jewellery design.
4. Gemstone Resources
If you’re a complete beginner when it comes to gemstones, we recommend starting with GemKids. Yes, it’s designed for younger learners, but we genuinely think it’s a great resource for adults too! It’s packed full of facts and could help you create a shortlist. Once you have an idea of what you might be looking for, give us a call – Nicky is our resident gemologist and she’d be really happy to talk you through the finer details of your chosen gemstones.
