I always had a love for art and I was always jealous of the people who could do it. When I was 30 years old I decided to enroll on an evening painting class as I was working in the corporate world. That was almost 17 years ago, and since then I haven’t stopped.
Introducing yourself to a new skill can help you increase your comfort zone limits and open the doors to creativity that you never knew you had. Jewelry more specifically offers a lot of opportunities during the design and making process to help you do that.
When you are first introduced to the material you need to learn its limits, and you can only do that by the “hands-on” approach. Hands on means doing mistakes and continue until you have the result you want.
The material is there so you need to think what this jewelry will be used for: is it gonna be a pair of earrings, a ring, a necklace, a bracelet or maybe a pin? Each of the uses imposes new restrictions in your design.
The material is there, you know what you want your jewel to be used for, so you need to think about the design. Is it gonna be geometric, minimal, or maybe a theme inspired by nature? This is totally up to you because the design is an expression of your own experiences and images, you have in your mind.
By combining the material, use, and design, there will be a few challenges on the way that you need to overcome in order to materialize what you have in mind. I know that when you read it, it looks complicating but the mind finds beautiful ways to work on all of these things and as you learn and train yourself on your skill, gradually you will push your comfort limits and you will be more creative!
