Student Designing Fine Jewellery on paper at JDMIS

Traditional Jewellery Design

A strong foundation in jewellery design is the basis for many jewellery career paths. Working on paper allows for refinements and prevents costly errors and miscommunication. A good sketch can close a sale; effective renderings reveal the designer's spirit and build excitement for the design; accurate technical drafts communicate fabrication requirements to any jeweller. Together with a focus on practical, beautiful and comfortable design, these skills ensure competence and understanding in this most creative and limitless field.

Participants in this course learn, from first principles, the fundamentals of jewellery design. No prior design or art experience is required and students will complete a full portfolio of designs by the conclusion of their training and leave with a clear understanding of how to design beautiful jewellery that is durable, saleable & suitable for manufacture.
