Jewelry Designs For Opal Often Begin With a Simple Idea

You can often adapt these ideas to your own creative ability. If so, just doodle and keep the bits of paper in your pocket for future reference.
Its so simple nowadays to take a picture of what you have done with your phone camera, or better still a better quality camera with a macro facility, and attach them to an email for us to check. You can also scan them if you have a scanner. We can often make additional suggestions and come up with something really different.
So you can see that designing opal jewelry is really very similar to designing anything. You just have to think about it a lot. sometimes when you have nothing to do. Perhaps waiting for a bus or sitting in a coffee shop. Some of my best ideas have developed from a serviette in a restaurant, so be sure to carry a pen with you.
Just like snowflakes,there is really no end to the shapes and patterns that can be utilized in opal, or for that matter, and kind of gemstone design. Just use your imagination.
