What’s it take to become a jewelry designer?

Maybe you’ve dabbled in jewelry design. Or simply love jewelry and want to take it to the next level. But what does it take to become a professional jewelry designer? Well, as you guessed…it starts with education.

But first, what exactly is a jewelry designer?

According to

Jewelry designers work with precious metals, diamonds, beads and gemstones to create wearable pieces of art. A jewelry designer may create one-of-a-kind pieces for high-end jewelers or an entire line for a mass-market fashion designer. They may also sell their jewelry themselves. Designers can create jewelry entirely by hand or they can begin the design process by using computer-aided design (CAD) software. As with many artists, jewelry designers are often freelance workers and must continually seek assignments or customers in a competitive market.
