Jewelry designers want to be successful. But things can get a little muddled when thinking about how to get there. Our teachers, our friends, our colleagues often disagree on this point, and tell us to look for conflicting measures of success. We can often lose sight of what we want to end up with. The goal-oriented jewelry designer has but one guiding star: to achieve resonance. Everything else is secondary. We achieve resonance by gaining a comfort in communicating about design. This comfort, or disciplinary fluency, translates into all our composing, constructing, and manipulating choices. This is empowering. Our pieces resonate. We achieve success.
