Everyone is “an award-winning jewellery designer”, how do I check out if they have what it takes?
- If they can’t draw then they are not a jewellery designer as they need to convey the idea to you clearly and drawing it is the only way of doing this.
- If they are using a computer program to draw the design they are limited to the templates provided and you can’t get an original design that way.
- If they can’t talk about the elements of design – movement, line, shape, tone, colour & texture then they probably don’t have enough training.
- If they can’t provide you a few design alternatives and explain the pros and cons of each design then think about talking to someone else.
