What influences the design of a certain piece of jewelry? Does the design reflect something that is very personal to the artist or can the artist be a free spirit and go with the flow and even surprise her/himself with the final outcome?
Many artisan designers/jewelers have a certain design genre that represents their individual and unique style—their pieces are as unique as their signature. You can see this with many internationally known designers as their pieces are sold worldwide.
While people are attracted to jewelry at first by its beauty, they also can connect and relate to jewelry at an emotional level. You have often heard that expression, “there was just something about that piece that I was drawn too”. When one wears such a piece, there is a deeper and often more significant meaning for the individual.
