Hannah's Work Experience Week - Designing a ring


At Dytham Jewellery Designers we took the opportunity during work experience week at a local high school to learn the ways of being a designer to one student, Hannah. Throughout this week she learned what it takes to design jewellery at a professional standard.

Mood boards, one expressing modern style rings and another of antique styles rings.

Rough sketches of possible design ideas.

From the rough sketches, ideas were more focused and developed further.

Focused on one design, Hannah then completed a making instructions form for the craftsmen at Dytham Jewellery Designers.

Once Hannah chosen a design she was happy with she then was introduced to CAD (computer aided design) program. This allowed her to learn the structure of the ring and how it could be made. This also gave her the opportunity to visualize the design before actually making it, which made room for possible alterations.
