One such tool is our new enamelling system. I use the term enamel only to describe what the end result will look like as this is actually a ceramic composite that is hardened under a UV light. It gives a fantastic range of colours and effects and is much harder wearing than enamel. I ordered this system when I visited a German trade fair in February and I have been mulling over designs since. I love colour and when I think of colourful jewellery, India is the first thing that comes to mind. Indian jewellery is big, ornate, colourful and intricate. My aesthetic would be much more minimalist than a typical pair of Indian earrings but I can appreciate the beauty in them and thought it might be nice to take this as the base for our new range.
We started by researching lots of Indian patterns and jewellery. Pinterest is a great tool for this (an online platform for collating and sharing images).
