This book teaches how to use drawing as means of expressing a jeweler's creative ideas. In jewelry, there are other ways of creating which do not stem directly from working in the studio. The most important of these is drawing, an extremely useful tool for jewelers due to its speed and adaptability. Mastering this tool can be a great resource that can help jewelers to progress easily and steadily with designing jewelry and presenting their ideas and projects. Drawing allows creative ideas to be clearly visualized; on paper, the form or proportions of the jewelry can be modified quickly and confidently, the structure of clasps and hinges can be studied. It can also be used to visualize how a design will look with a polished or matt finish or with other changes such as different materials. This manual can be read from cover to cover or consulted when facing challenges in real projects.
