" Well, I never studied design and I went to art school to study art, you know, sculpture and things like that, and ended up making things like sculpture and started making chairs and jewellery together and that's how I started." - Marc Newson
Geometric design has been around it seems forever. Fabrics have long been printed in bold designs and colourful motifs.
This season bold geometric design has impacted jewellery design. With new manufacturing techniques, bright enamelling and laser cut precision, designers are able to create large or statement pieces that were simply too bulky or chunky to wear in days gone by.
The days of sitting at a drawing board, with a pencil, eraser, and protractor are long gone, todays jewellery designers are able to experiment, create, adjust, and perfect their designs even printing them in 3D before going into manufacturing.
This combination of art, maths and design has inspired and delighted us with eye-catching pieces that are easy to wear, pop with bright colours, graphic shapes and geometric patterns that previously would have been too cumbersome to wear or simply too expensive for us mere mortals.
