Do you ever wonder where the idea for a design comes from? People often ask me ” How do you come up with these ideas?” Sometimes it is as simple as the movement I see in a shape. In the image,a part of a seed pod has provided an idea for a pair of earrings. I then added another element.The pearls represent the imagined seed missing from the original seed pod.
When designing Equestrian jewelry, the rider must be able to relate to the shape.They have to share a relationship with the representation. Go to the pendent section of my web site and find a piece that you relate to and ask yourself why you like it? What is it you are relating to? Is it the shape you like, the subject or discipline, the size, the detail, the function. All of these and more are elements of designing.
