You Move Me, Margie Deeb

The Beader’s Guide to Jewelry Design, written by Margie Deeb, teaches you to design your own creations by paying attention to unity, scale, proportion, balance, rhythm, shape, pattern, texture, movement, drape, and color. You’ll explore the interaction of jewelry and the body: how it moves, how it drapes, how it guides the viewer’s eye to complement–or clash–with different body sizes and wardrobe. The concepts presented are supported by photos, illustrations, before-and-after examples, and challenges. Tips from today’s leading jewelry designers in polymer clay, beads, precious metal clay, ceramic, and wire teach you how to take your ideas and refine them into extraordinary, wearable jewelry.

  • Discover why a piece of jewelry is visually appealing.
  • Understand why you prefer certain styles and how to apply the concepts to achieve what you want.
  • Gain confidence in using specific applications of visual and aesthetic principles.
  • Be inspired to grow and express more of yourself and your unique visions of beauty.

 

This is the fifth in a nine-part interview with Margie Deeb.                          

Q Why did you include a chapter on movement?

A Movement is something I’ve never seen written about, even though it’s critical to beautiful jewelry: Movement makes art come alive. We know physical movement well, the kind that occurs when beaded fringe sways or metal charms shimmy. Physical movement is obvious. There is, however, another kind of movement—one less tangible, one that doesn’t physically move. We sense this intangible movement more often than we see it.

It is the movement—physical or intangible—in jewelry that initially calls to and captures the viewer: the sparkle of a reflective facet, the sinuous curve of an element, the beat-like percussion of a repetitive pattern. In this chapter we examine the movement of light, pattern, line, shape, texture, and color. We dicuss the “musical”  effects of visual rhythm, repetition, and space.

 

 

I love studying intangible movement because it involves intuition and feeling rather than anything physically measurable. I wrote: “Intangible movement and visual rhythm dwell in the realm of feeling and the senses—slightly elusive, slightly mysterious, perfect for evoking mood. You can create tension by repeating angular elements. Smaller elements can create more rapid movement. Imbue a piece with tranquility by using long, curvilinear shapes and motifs in horizontal positions. To speed up movement, increase the repetition with progressively shorter intervals. To slow it down, do the opposite.”

 

Which kind of repeated line makes you feel more calm? Which moves faster? Does one seem older than the other?
