Fancy Jewelry Design Tips for the Fashion-Forward Womanby Kaira OH Designer Jewellery
Whether you're looking to start designing jewelry or just want to improve what you already do, here are some helpful tips to keep in mind.
Fancy Jewellery making is an art form that requires patience, skill, and practice. Here are some tips for beginners to get started on this creative hobby.
Start with a base metal
A base metal is a material used to make the actual piece of jewelry. You'll need to decide whether you want to use silver, gold, copper, brass, or another type of metal. If you choose a base metal, then you'll need to find a wire that will work well with that metal.
Add color by using gemstones
Gemstones add sparkle and shine to any design. They come in different colors and shapes, so there's no limit to how much variety you can achieve. To add more interest to your designs, try mixing metals. Try adding a small diamond to an otherwise plain setting.
Finish off with a clear coat
A clear coat adds shine and protection to your finished piece. It also helps prevent scratches and fading. You can use acrylic paint or spray lacquer to apply a clear coat. If you choose to use spray lacquer, make sure to follow the manufacturer's instructions carefully.
Don't forget about the back!
To protect the back of your jewelry, you should add a protective coating. This will help prevent scratching and fading. You can either use an oil based varnish or a water based polyurethane. Both options work well, so it's up to you to decide which one works better for you.
Create a focal point
A focal point is the main element of any piece of jewelry. It's usually the stone or gemstone that makes the piece unique. If you're creating a necklace, make sure that the focal point is large enough to stand out.
