Designing Jewelry: Brooches, Bracelets, Necklaces and Accessories Reviews
I had heard so many great things about this book, but I have to say that although it's lovely to flick through, it would have been great to have some step by step guidance on rendering. It is full of lovely illustrations of jewellery beautifully rendered. The text tends to describe the piece rather than how to do it yourself. So there are some elements of how to design, just not rendering... So I guess just don't buy it to learn how to draw.
i am studying gemology at GIA. This is the textbook they use for the jewelry design class. I thought the text was going to be more instructional. For example, I would like to know how to render how the light interacts with gem, rendering facets etc. The text shows a progression of examples of rendering various pieces and stones, which is helpful. Galli also demonstrates how an abstract illustration or piece of inspiration becomes a design for wearable jewelry that is structurally sound.
Designing Jewelry is a satisfying visual guide on how to render jewelry designs effectively. It is thorough and showcases a variety of elegant renderings. All in all, I would highly recommend the book to those who are visual learners.
This is my second book by the same people who drew and painted those necklaces and bracelets in the book. One of the person in the book was also a professor of mine at FIT(Fashion Institute of Technology,NYC). He was a wonderful teacher and his works are just amazing.
