Learn simple sketching techniques to make your own designs including different shapes and forms.
This workshop will focus on how to use drawing as means of expressing an individual’s creativity. In jewelry, there are other ways of creating which do not stem directly from working in the studio. The most important of these is drawing and sketching, an extremely useful tool for jewelers due to its speed and adaptability. Mastering this tool can be a great resource that can help jewelers to progress easily and steadily in designing jewelry and presenting their ideas and projects. Drawing allows creative ideas to be clearly visualized; on paper, the form or proportions of the jewelry can be modified quickly and confidently.
