Jewelry designer is the
profession of creating, crafting, rendering, or
fabricating designs for jewelry. This is an old
practice of the goldsmith or precious metalworker
that evolved to a billion-dollar industry with the
odyssey from ancient cultures into the machine age
and now into the computer age. Jewelry design falls
under the category of what is commonly known as
"functional art", that is art that can
be worn or used.
Before an article of jewelry is created, a jewelry
designer typically renders it, a professional who
is trained in the architectural and functional knowledge
of not only metallurgy but also design essentials
such as composition and wearability.
Once the article is rendered, the design is then
constructed using the necessary materials for proper
adaptation to the function of the object. For example,
24K gold was used in earliest jewelry design because
it was more available than silver as source material.
Before the 1st century many civilizations also included
beads into jewelry. Once the discovery of gemstones
and gem cutting became available, the art of jewelry
decoration and design shifted.
Early Jewelry design commissions were often constituted
by aristocracy or the church to respect an event
or as wearable ornamentation. Within the structure
of early methods, enameling became standard method
for creating ornamental merchandise to demonstrate
wealth, position, or power. These early techniques
created a specific intricate design element that
later would forge the baroque faction in jewelry
The procedure of creating 3D
jewelry design can be divided into three basic
phases: 3D modeling which portray the process of
forming the shape of an object, layout and animation
which describes the motion and position of objects
within a scene, and 3D representation which produces
an image of an object.
Computer-aided design (CAD)
and computer aided modeling (CAM)
is the use of computer technology to assist in the
design and especially the drafting (technical drawing
and engineering drawing) of a part or artifact.
Current CAD/CAM software systems are able to present
3D solid and surface models.
CAD/CAM is used in the 3d
design of complex fabrication of jewelry (jewellery)
as well as in simple patterns.
CAD/CAM has become an particularly important technology
within the scope of computer-aided technologies,
with payback such as lower product development costs
and a greatly shortened design cycle. CAD/CAM enables
artists to lay out and develop work on screen, print
it out and save it for future editing, reducing
time on their drawings.
Our design engineers are develop in CAD/CAM software
such as the latest generation of Rhino and Matrix.
We offer reduced time and cost for designers and
their customers with state-of-the-art technology.
Our machines build wax models, such as Jewelry Models,
from computer files using thermoplastics that are
faultless components for investment casting. See
some of the machinery here >>
Our systems reduce cost and time-to-market by transforming
CAD Designs into hard copy 3D jewelry
design. These models are so accurate that designers
can go beyond concept modeling to fabricate tooling
grade patterns ready for casting or mold-making.
Jointly CAD/CAM allows the design of jewelry
using a computer (CAD) and builds an exact hard
copy jewelry model of a jewellery item using a computer
controlled manufacturing device (CAM). Our technicians
utilize all file types compatible with any CAM appliance,
which allows us to quickly generate a precise wax
model ready for lost wax casting.
Stereo lithography, prototyping
and these other hard model technologies are the
potential of the jewelry industry.
Our technicians have been in the jewelry trade
since 1983, operating in various branches of the
industry. We are some of the finest jewellery manufacturers
and jewellers in the industry.
With our fist-hand knowledge and understanding
throughout the jewelry manufacturing process from
start to finish, we deliver quality.
