About Our Site
Jewellery designers design and often make jewellery using a variety of materials, including gold, silver and precious stones. They design and plan pieces that can have great sentimental significance or symbolic meaning, can be wearable or are decorative artefacts in their own right.
Designers must be able to relate well to their clients in order to understand design specifications, as well as master the creative and practical skills needed to make a product.
Designers can produce designs for mass production or can make small numbers of objects or individual pieces commissioned by a client. Some jewellery designers focus more on design, using specialist companies to provide the different stages of the making process.
The majority of jewellery designers are self-employed so also require commercial awareness, marketing and business skills.
