This picture from Sylvie Peraud’s sketchbook stirs up feelings of admiration touched with jealousy.
Isn’t this how you meant to work? Draw your idea and then render it in polymer? Yeah, that’s how we mean to work but it doesn’t always work out that way.
Sylvie shows us the results of her careful planning in this earring design. She drew the suspended pod (it began as a pin) and colored it in weeks later.
You’ll be relieved to know that even with this level of intention, Sylvie had to modify the earring to make it hang properly.
She worried about making two matching pieces and (if I’m translating correctly) opted for the second earring to be a post design. She admitted in an earlier blog post about how she spends too much time on Pinterest. (So she’s not too different from the rest of us.)
