A Simple Doodle… To This…

Ariane Zurcher Jewelry ~ Samadhi Collection:  18 Kt Brushed Gold & .49 ct VSII Diamond Pendant, 18 Kt Gold Chain & Clasp

Often an idea comes in the form of a doodle, literally!  Which is why having a sketch book around is so important.  Doodles are like little dreams… they seem to come out of nowhere and if I’m lucky I catch them as they appear.  Not all sketches are pretty, sometimes I’m in the subway or on my way somewhere and so pretty isn’t the goal.  Capturing the idea, the image and getting it down so I won’t forget it, is.  So something that begins as this….

Turns into this… silver models for what will eventually become 18 Kt Gold earrings.

From the model a silicone mold is made… like this one…

  1. I love seeing this because I do not know how to make such things. I only know clay sculpture and acrylic painting, both pretty much self taught. When I went to school in the institution they did not have art classes, but have very much enjoyed learning art in the past few years. I am hoping to learn to take outdoor pictures with my fancy camera this summer. Please keep sharing these sorts of pictures, Ariane. I love to see them! Thank you so much. ❤
