Advanced Jewelry Design and Rendering

Register Now


        Building upon the basic skills the Counter Sketching and Color Rendering class provided, this workshop starts with drawing and shading gemstones from the top and in perspective. Then we will spend two days exploring six different angles to represent a ring design ( top view, through the finger, profile, lifted perspective, rings at 45 degrees and building a ring from a center stone). The students will learn how to render pavé on different surfaces and draw chains, cuffs, and linked bracelets. We will also explore cufflinks and brooches. Students will create using source images ( which will greatly vary from art forms in mature to art movements through time) and transform what they see into vibrant jewelry designs. You will be encouraged to do quick sketches, then select one and render it without losing its dynamics, flowing lines. We will use light pads to make that possible. After sketching on white paper we will use light grey paper and render the designs in black and white.
