About the Think & Design Jewelry SKETCHING series, by Eni Oken:
How do jewelry artists come up with great ideas? This is the only HANDS-ON series of tutorials showing how to come up with dozens of DRAWING ideas with each lesson.
This is our first Linear Design Structure of the series. So far, all of our Design Structures were pretty self contained (Flower, Heart, Star), and with the exception of the Cluster, did not repeat in any direction. With this lesson, you’ll learn how to create fabulously intricate designs that can be applied to bangles, bracelets, cuffs, collars and wedding bands.
