Educating the Client

Category: Designing Jewellery

When people ask you to design jewellery, problems can arise. 

Some clients say “I want something like this” and expect the piece in an hour or so! 

 

Start by asking them what it is about the admired piece they like?  What attracts them or why they want similar?  Is it the colour, the length, the pendant or what?  The client will marvel at your detail and considerations.  Focus on one point to start with, and build the design from there.

However, not all customers need to be educated equally - but you should always look up to whoever is commissioning a design.  Discernment is involved every step of the way for the successful beader!
