Having a hard time coming up with original, creative ideas? Observe nature. Nature has been a source for jewelry design for thousands of years-Egyptian, Medieval, and Baroque, Art Nouveau and more! Inspiration for shape, color, line, and texture can inevitably transpire for your next jewelry piece when studying nature. You could find a color scheme from a breathtaking sunset, or perhaps a shape outline from the thorns of your rosebush. Trees, birds, animals, insects, the ocean, mountains, the stars, moon, and sun! The possibilities are endless. Jewelry design is truly an art form-think of it as such.
