Want to know how I create my designs?

moonstone and gold earrings; green tourmaline and gold ring; silver, gold, pearl and diamond necklace from Nikki Lorenz Designs

Well, to be honest I have two different ways. 

The first...  Sometimes I just feel the need to sit and sketch.  Occasionally some of these sketches really stick in my head.  Those sketches get played with and explored a little more.  If I'm happy with what I see those will become new work.

Other times I look at a stone & I can just see the piece around it.  Some of these impressions are quick loose ideas, while other times I can see the entire piece.

The ring in this picture is an example of one of those times that I just saw the finished piece.  The necklace and earrings are examples of sketches that got explored and turned into an entire collection of work.

Talk to you soon,
