There are a lot of beaders that have a desire to want to do something different that no one else has ever done. Designing jewelry designs that you create yourself can be difficult, but it is not impossible. There are a few things that you need to keep in mind during the design phase.
When drawing up your own design ideas, you should always include as much detail as humanly possible. The design that you write up or sketch out should be intricate. You should consider the beads that you will have to use to complete the design, as well as the colors of beads that you are going to use in the design.
Its astonishing how many inspirational things you can find when you are actually scouting them out. Search for inspiration everywhere you go. You can locate ideas for your own jewelry designs in some of the most inconspicuous spots. For example, your vegetable garden, your fish tank, and even your morning commute can be things that you draw inspiration from. Always look at colors, shapes and people to help you with your design ideas.
If you fail, try, try again. Not every bead that you design into a unique creation is going to look attractive. Even professionals that design jewelry for a living have setbacks. Instead of focusing on your failures, use your failures to your advantage.
Make a couple of pieces of jewelry out of one of your sketched designs. Try to incorporate different beads into the design and make various variations of the same design. For example, if you used seed beads for a design, make an additional designer piece from cylinder beads, so you can compare and contrast the differences between the two different pieces that you created.
If you are adamant amount learning how to create your own jewelry designs, you need to be aware that the process is a trial and error type of scenario. Some of your designs may work, while others don’t. Do not let your failures get in your way. Learn from them. Before you know it you will be designing jewelry pieces that professional designers would be envious over.
