Jewelry designs ideas can come from everywhere. You can get an idea when looking at a magazine, different color combination, different logos, when watching TV etc. You can merge to different designs from things around you (rug patterns etc.) to create your own designs. We are creative in our own way. It is easier for some people they can just get various designs by looking at the ground. While others need time to think go places, look at different patterns, color, read different magazines, to get some sort of inspiration.

To discover your creativity in jewelry design depends on you. How you view fashion, what interest you? There different patterns when it comes to jewelry making and these are:

 

1.Repeat

This is a repetitive or repetition of a pattern; black, white, black, white, black etc.

 

2.Symmetrical:

A pattern that is identical on both sides. It is usually stared from the middle. It is a mirrored type pattern equaled in balance and proportion.

 

3.Asymmetric

A pattern that is different on one side and also different on the other side.

 

4.Random

Is an unpredictable pattern, it is aimless and irregular.

 

A Jewelry style is what a person thinks of fashion and since fashion is unique so is a person’s Jewelry style. It is used to express oneself. It can be classic, simple, big, sassy, fun, chic, festive, brass, current, bold or retro. Many things influence your choice of style varieties; options, choices and interest play a role.

 

We cannot talk about styles without talking about trends. Trends come and go but style remains the same. Trend and style goes together. When creating a jewelry design think about the trends you see today, trends you still remember from the past and also the trends that you like to follow it will help when creating a jewelry design.

 

Another thing to consider is color. Color is everywhere. In the sky, land, change of season, football clubs are represented by different colors. So it is an important factor in jewelry design. Also the type of jewelry you design depends on the occasion you want to use it for church, work, movies, dinner, parties etc. Adding beads to jewelry design can go a long way. You may have seen a bead somewhere that you thought was nice and can decide to incorporate it into the design you are working on.

 

Remember to spend within the budget you have. That is why it is always good to know what you want in other to avoid over spending or the trouble of having to return things back to the store. Do not go and get stuffs from the store if the design you want is still in thinking process. The more you create jewelry designs the more ideas will flow into your mind.
