I am in the middle of reading Drawing Jewels for Fashion, a fascinating book by Carol Woolton. Woolton is the jewelry editor for British Vogue. Her book reveals pages from the sketchbooks of some of the top jewelry designers in the fashion world. I have never come across anything quite like it in its focus on the role of sketches to the jewelry design process.
In the pages of this book, I discovered the amazing designs of Caroline Scheufele for Chopard. Her designs are completely mesmerizing! I have shown Scheufele's sketch above, followed by her finished necklace below.
