The first volume in this two-part series provides a step-by-step guide to the fundamental aspects of the graphic representation of a wide range of jewellery pieces, from the simplest to the most complex forms. Different volumens, spaces, surfaces and finishes are explained in details, as are methods for depicting different materials, from timeless metals and precious stones to substances such as celluloid and bakalite. The objective of this book is not to showcase completed jewellery pieces. Instead, it aims to provide readers with the tools needed to be able to accurately convey their ideas and master use of colour, as well as to draw different facets and effects such as brilliance, transparencey and opacity. It does so by explaining a variety of illustration techniques involving pencils, markers, pastels, tempera and computer rendering.
