Jewelry Design Directions
“My focus on this piece was to make something for the upper body/neck/shoulder, playing with an exaggerated floral surface and replacing the randomness of nature with the use of both color and shape intertwined, the “hacking” is represented by the manipulation of the base metal, as brass is manipulated into 3D forms” – Andy Farrow Jewelry Designer
With our world becoming increasingly digital, we find ourselves craving a balancing effect, one that increases a deeper connection to our natural world.
Millennials and Gen Z value sustainability as a crucial element in their products and will have an impact on their purchasing decisions. Therefor as beaders and jewelry designers, it’s very important to bring to life the back story of your pieces in order to gain a real connection with what people are drawn to physically and why they will support you morally.
Swarovski supports this crucial element with their Four Main Principles:
Create, Protect, Respect, and Care
