In this blog, I have used the descriptor “hand drawn” a few times. By that, I mean that the jewelry designer has created a three-dimensional object — an unyielding form — that also manages to have the charm and spontaneity of a drawing. It can mean that the designer has tactfully left something looking less finished or added details in a way that seems so fluid and casual. For me, it is among the highest design compliments. While, of course, I didn’t make up the words hand drawn, I sort of feel as if I made up its use in this context — I suppose it was time to define it.
Laura from Octopus Studio has a line available on Etsy which displays the best of what it means for jewelry to have a hand drawn quality.
