Jewelry Collection Mood Board

So today I created a mood board of jewelry because as you know I want to design my own jewelry collection sometime soon. For this mood board I used organic and minimal jewelry from jewelry designers who I find very inspiring. My talented friend Eva Boden ,who is a jewelry designer, and I have talked a lot about our own collections that we want to develop and our plan was to create a mood board soon that keeps us motivated and is a reminder for working on our own collections.

I still have to learn the craft of jewelry designing and making though but I am eager to learn and highly motivated since it has something that I have been wanting to do for such a long time already. Oh, don’t even ask since when the idea to become a jewelry designer had been on my mind, you’d be shocked if I told you for how long and that now after all those years I finally dare to tackle this…

I am honest here, I love graphic design and illustration but lately I am not so sure if I will stick with offering these services or if my business is going to shift into another direction. Truth is I have tons of ideas, I am certainly not lacking creativity and I am multipassionate so even thought this is great sometimes it is not so easy to narrow my interests of goals down to own thing. So this is what I am doing now. I try to become super clear and conscious about the kind of business I want to create and have, where my focus should be, what kind of products and/or services I want to sell, how this kind of business model is going to look like, if I maybe even want to incorporate some kind of teaching/education since it is a field I have been working in for such a long time and that I feel a big purpose for as well. So you can tell that I am going through some major shifts and refocusing lately.

I chose some help for that, I am now doing Marie Forleo’s B-School since I really believe in this program. For the past few years I thought that talent, passion and blogging will give me the results for my business that I desire but I came to the conclusion that this is obviously not enough and that I have to learn marketing and strategy in order to reach my goals. I am super eager and excited to learn from Marie and my fellow students and mentors in this program. So if this blog gets a little quiet from time to time, please don’t leave and please come back, I am just working a lot behind the scenes in the areas or redefining and getting clarity, refocusing and reevaluating. I promise I will come back with something good after working my way through all this material and believe me it really is a lot and super challenging!

OK back to the jewelry mood board; I feel greatly inspired by everything minimalistic, also everything Mediterranean drawn to the ocean, pearls, silver and gold, organic forms and I am excited to see where my own jewelry design and craft journey is leading me to in the near future.
