Regardless of what line of work you’re in, Behance is a website that will never fail to inspire you (or help you procrastinate).
You haven’t heard of Behance?
To briefly sum it up: Behance is “the leading online platform to showcase & discover creative work. The creative world updates their work in one place to broadcast it widely and efficiently. Companies explore the work and access talent on a global scale.”
Yes, it is all of this and more. From graphic design to architecture to fashion and photography, Behance covers all (or most) of the creative fields, providing creative individuals with all sorts of opportunities and brings you and I new ideas and food for thought.
I’ve been scouting Behance for something a little more niche today – Jewelry Design. I have been on the search for something new, something I have not seen before. I wanted to see ideas (and not finished products), I wanted to see artists at work. Some of these projects are campaigns, some the works of enthusiasts, some professionals, others just students trying to make it work.
I hope you will be as impressed by the talented and innovative artists as I am.
Gripoix Jewellery 2015 Campaign
Project by The Makerie Studio
New York, USA
We’re used to seeing gold paired up with gem stones, but nothing like the jewelry in these images. Aside from the very unusual and interesting jewelry, the Gripoix Campaign images stand out from the crowd in their dress setting which was inspired by Greek architecture and the film Metropolis. These architectural and futuristic sets give the jewelry a background story that we otherwise would not have missed.
Tale of Four Cities
Project by Bikramjit Bose
New Delhi, India
A project showcasing jewelry and a unique editorial photoshoot for Harper’s Bazaar, India.
MANUFRACT Handcrafted Jewelry
Project by Marcel Dunger
Entirely handmade, the individual pieces of jewelry are inspired by the healing process of trees. This process is echoed in the making of the jewelry; broken wood pieces are encased in a bioresin form to contrast the organic forms. Every piece of jewelry contains a broken piece of hardwood. If that’s not unique, I don’t know what is.
Project by C. J. Sola
I chose this project to showcase both the amazing designs and an artist at work. The digital designs we’re accustomed to nowadays have nothing on the traditional hand drawn designs.
Urocissa Caerulea Necklace
Project by Guan-Hao Pan
Urocissa is a species of bird particular to Taiwan, which served as an inspiration for this necklace design. It’s still in the making but you can already tell it’s bound to be a success. I liked scrolling through this designer’s profile to see him go from inspiration to brainstorming, to final design. If this were up for sale, I’d be his first customer.
Project by Taisha Carrington
I know innovation when I see it. This designer glorifies jewelry and brings it on the same pedestal to visual arts. This ring stands alone as a sculpture, but once worn it acquires an organic life of it’s own. Nature blends with man.
Project by Alicia Andrei
Wooden jewelry has the potential to become a trend. This artist uses the material in an unusual way, blending geometric shapes with simple forms. The effortlessness of the design is impeccable.
Paper Jewelry Design
Project by Neha Karnik
Each of these pieces are handcrafted using paper and beads. Easily customisable to your desired style, color and size. You can contact the artist and request an order. Today!
RITHMS 3D printed printed jewelry
Project by David Allin Reese
When looking for something innovative, I stumbled upon these 3D printed jewelry pieces that are reminiscent of Inception, the movie. Will we be seeing more of this next year?
Fashion and Technology Electronic Bracelet
Project by Kamil Piatkowski
One of the most inventive designs I’ve seen thus far. How amazing would it be if the patterns of your jewelry would change, whenever and wherever you wanted? It’s all a possibility now. Kamil has created these designs with Aluminium and LCD screens for an American jewelry company.
