Jewelry design sketch

Jewelry design
Watercolour and ink on paper
1996

I found a bunch of these jewelry design sketches in my high school sketchbooks. Mostly involving expensive and exotic stones and lesser-known precious metals.

Funny thing is, I’ve never actually made any jewelry (other than stringing beads), I simply used to sketch things like this. I did always have an interest in lapidary work as a kid but never really pursued it.

Oh well, one of these days…
