1. Introduction: Hello there, my name is where semen and maturity and a designer and design teacher from Morocco. Jewelry design is a very important step in creating the perfect piece of jewelry. It allows you to explained story behind it, shows the intentions of the creator and also the client. I first fell in love with this form of art when I studied jewelry design in the academia position of ours of Casablanca. After three years a study, I choose to take a sectorial path. In this class, I will share with you our draw different gemstone cuts and how it bend them in a way so they can spark it on paper. You will learn notions about light and shadow and how it changes, and also different techniques of cosh Benton. In the class projects you will get creative. You will create three piece of jewelry when you combine all the elements that you learned in previous lessons. I can't wait to see your projects. So that's the glass became. 2. List of Materials: Hello again. So it is a very simplified Lisp materials where we'll start withdrawing material. So first you will need 0.5. mechanical pencil. Different pencil sizes, drawing and shading. Any type, clear races. You have. A paper pencil for shading and the wide postcard pen for faith in shunt options. So let's talk about Benton materials. First. Brushes. For the process you will need at least two sides of brushes I use to long brushes of Brown's size 02 and another short one. With the one size. In this class we'll only use primary colors of quash band. So we will need to white and black. Thus, MY primary yellow, magenta or primarily red and sijang or primary blue. I use a ceramic dish as a mixing pilot. And you will also need a jar of water. It's preferable to draw on dark grid paper. But you can also use this kind of sketchbooks or Banting books like these peaks l book. It's important that the papers has more than 160 grams. You will also need oval and circular templates. I have this. Oval templates allows you to draw Nicholas's over different forms and shapes. 3. Exercise 1 : Drawing round brilliant gemstone: Before I dive into the step-by-step drought and for round billions gut and left to talk about the different parts of a faster gemstone. As the picture shows, the upper bars is colored graph. In the lower one is guarded Pavilion and the boulder separated by girdle. The upper part is composed of 80 Bilbo penned phase stars. It's very important to mended number because we will save it for the drought with and also those billions of stars have enforcement role in reflecting the light and shadows. For drawing around brilliant cards, we need to draw three different sizes of circles, one inside another. For the central one. The one in the center is for the table. Second one is for the IIT stars, with the third one is for the bezels. But we need to divide the circus injuries bars. So part would take place. And then it's all the work of connecting. The same for the lower part. We separate circle into eight bars. They drove around to circle, small circle, which represents decoded. And then connecting the two parse stuff. 4. Exercise 2 : Drawing pear shaped gemstones: If you have templates as contain Pierre shapes, you can use it to all the pier shape. But since I don't have one, I will start. I will use my circular template. So I will start by drawing an arc and then choosing the point of goals disarmed. And then connecting the point with Barthes. Yes, the parts of dark. So I will start by drawing three different shapes of peer, but inside another from disrupt sciences of course. So what will be the placement of eight Mickey's Bessel's? The second row will be contained a stars and the third one is to tape. Yeah. 5. Exercise 3 : Drawing Oval faceted gemstones : We will use our template to drought the general shape of the stone and then grow out to other removal forms, but in different sizes inside the generic shape. So this, this two over forms will allow us to draw the star then the Faisal was the same as for the previous storms. Will connect each dot so they can form the stars and the base. And there was a show that table find our genes. Ok. Right. 6. Exercise 4 : Drawing Emereld cut: Hello and welcome to this new class. In this class we will learn how to do out in both catch. Catch. We will start with a simpler example. Forum is for extended, will split the Hs so we can have flat features. Okay? Mm-hm. Yeah. But that, that, that okay. In this lecture. Mm-hm. 7. Understanding light and shadow: So after drawing gemstone cut, let's talk a bit about theory of light and how the lighting shadows changes in the gemstone around gemstone. So we take as a source of glide, the one that comes from the upper left down right. Facet gemstones are translucent element. So the lightest get skin from the upper left side of the ground, gets out from the downer right. So the upper left side of the graph and the down right, the pavilion will be normally lighter, more confronted to the source of light. And the shadow will take place in the other farce because they are not into direct contact with the life. So in this explanatory drawing, I showed the form or the places with light changes in the ground and also in the pavilion. Also another drawing that shows both the views combined. 8. Exercise 5 : Painting round blue Saphir: To bend a blue Ron, severe gemstone who will need primary blue as a base bending. So we'll add a little bit of other water to our mix bent and then place it gently and our drawing, our circular shape. So bay vendors pay attention to the borders, of course. Our upper partials. Why? 9. Exercise 6 : Painting a pear shaped Peridot: Yeah. So okay. Okay. So right. Two 10. Exercise 6 : Painting an oval faceted Amethyst: Headlong and welcome to sneak glass. In this class, we will learn how to create out append and no gemstones. So well with take as an example, the amateurs. So damn, it just has this dark purple. So too have the Scala or we'll mix up the primary blue and the primary red. Okay? And so forth. As a result. So 11. Exercise 7 : Painting an Emerald: No. Yeah. Thank you. Yeah. Right. Whoops. Now. 12. First jewelry composition : Emerald and dimonds: So our first class project is to draw this emerged composition. So we'll start with drawing a numeral in the center. And it's surrounded by several clear diamonds. As we have seen before. Our mix is composed of primary alone and the primary blue to mix. Two colors have the blue that we need for our environment. And transparent diamonds, we need to make a bit of white with a little bit of black to have some very light gray and then place it, replace it. Circle around jewelry. So we'll mark our usual source of light that comes from the upper left down right. So we will see that the light changes around tool. So for the dozer stones or those diamonds that are very much close to the source of light. They are much lighter and all sorts shadows are much clearer. But as we get away from the source of life, the light, the shadows become less visible. Okay. 13. Second jewelry composition : Amethyst Earrings: This second project, you will drown earrings. So these earrings acting post right at gemstones. To have this dark, rich and make a scholar, he can make some time people primarily rate. So slowly the more attendant to have this very rich and dark. Yeah. Yeah. Okay. Mm-hm. Ok. Right. 14. Third jewelry composition : Saphirs and diamonds earrings : With commerce boxes. Mm-hm. Hello. Okay. So let's look at the video. Okay.
