As a jewelry designer, I prefer working with wire and gemstones. I love working with wire because it is malleable and forgiving. Also, I enjoy the curves, soft lines, and textures I can create with wire.
Gemstones are like icing on the cake. When I shop for gems, I'm like a kid in a candy store. I love the natural colors and textures you find in gemstones. I also enjoy the gem lore and meanings behind the stones.
My current collections don't feature as many gemstones as I would like. But, I'm rectifying it this year, beginning with my Spring release. Look for colorful gemstone additions to existing collections and new collections showcasing texture and color.
In my designs, I love texture, curves and color. My new look will reflect that. Even my current collections have been updated to offer more color through the use of natural gemstones.
The updates will start dropping next week. Catch me as I share them on live on Facebook @ayanaglazejewelry.
What are some of your favorite textures, shapes and colors in nature?
