A Design a Day – Day 234 (Taking a diamond earring design to the limits…)

Getting warm…warmer…hotter…hot…

I’ve been working on variations on an earring design that I initially posted two days ago (Day 232).

I’m liking more what I’m coming up with now:

Watercolor and Gouache S-Shaped Diamond Squiggle Earring Rendering by Joana Miranda

In this version, the delicate coil of the top portion of the earring balances the sinewy squiggle of the diamond drop below.

But I’m not done yet…

Come back tomorrow to see another version.
(We’ll both be surprised!)

  1. The tag surfer just dropped your gorgeous design on my laptop.. and it is stunning!
    Beautiful work… Would that I could afford such a beauty… or had a place to wear it. (There was a time…)
    I’d like to follow your blog, just to bring some beauty into my rather prosaic life.. so as you design, you will bring pleasure not only to the fortunate woman who wears them.
    Thank you.. R.

    • And your lovely comment made my day (night!) I’m passionate about design and I’m passionate about leaving my corner of the world a tiny bit more beautiful if I can. Just so you know, I too can’t afford most of the high-end designs I produce, but I do strive to also create great affordable designs from my output at the bench (visit me at http://www.joanamiranda.etsy.com or http://www.joanamirandastudio.com)

      Thanks for taking the time to write and for visiting my blog!

      All best wishes,
      Joana

  2. The first rule in choosing the right diamond stud earrings for you is to make sure they match your look. If you have a broader face you’ll probably want to go with princess cut diamond. If your face is thinner you’ll look best with round cut diamond studs, The key to the perfect setting is balance .
    There are many options you can select in a large number of cut, that can be to obtain Diamond stud Earrings. The shape of the earring depends on the cut of the diamond. Round earrings are made with a round cut. Emerald cuts are square whilst tear drop cuts are pear shaped.
    if you are new to buying diamond stud earrings the first thing you should do is gather some understanding on how the value of a diamond and therefore diamond stud earring is decided. As with other diamonds, diamond stud earrings are measured in carats.
