What is Jewelry Design Exactly.....
Jewelry consists of decorative items worn for personal adornment, such as Brooches, Rings, Necklaces, Earrings, Pendants, Bracelets, Tie Pins and Cuff Links.
Jewelry may be attached to the body or the clothes.
Line or Collection
- Men’s Line
- Women’s Line
- Unisex Line
- Children’s Line
- Pet’s Line
Jewelry lines can first be labeled by who the intended wearer or recipient is.
Next, each of these lines are further divided by the type of jewelry, such as rings, pendants etc.
From the diagram above, you can see that I have defined five lines of women’s jewelry.
- Necklaces and Pendants
Beneath each line, are examples of some of the different types of collections that each line can branch into.
There are no set rules for defining your lines and collections. You can organize and name them to suit your style, seasons or even by technique.
Now we have a basic understanding of the difference between a line and a collection.
For purposes of this series, I will focus on traditional lines of women’s jewelry and seasonal collections.
In the next post, we are going to take an in-depth look at the characteristics of a jewelry collection.
