Finding balance in a design, especially for bigger pieces such as necklaces, makes all the difference to whether a piece works or not.
I use to expect to be able to design in perfect balance immediately but I’ve learnt that I usually have to fiddle around with the design a little and be happy to be flexible enough to make changes.
This has been an “interesting” lesson to learn. For me it has been more about ego with ego stopping me from having the flexibility to alter the design so it finds its own balance.
Once I start to let go of my ego and realise the piece wants to do its own thing it is much easier.
