Jewellery creations with Jing Jing MiCHELE have provided the possibility of sharing in the emotion of the creative process and bringing unique pieces of jewellery to life.
Before an article of jewellery is created, design concepts are delineated via detailed technical drawings generated by sketching out ideas to visualise a piece of jewellery. Traditional hand-drawing and drafting methods are utilized in designing jewellery particularly at the conceptual stage, but a shift to computer-aided design programs is taking place.
