Redicovering my sketchbook

I mentioned last week that I had started on a new one of a kind piece. It went through several design changes along the way, and using my sketchbook really helped to settle on which design to use. I usually just arrange stones and get to work, but have decided to sketch out each of these ideas in advance. I also like the idea of having a record on paper. Here are some of the pieces that I will be working on in the next few weeks.

Yay sketchbook! Great colors. Are you using markers? If so, what kind? I would love to get some good color studies in my sketchbook.

Yes, they are Sharpie markers, good eye! I have one set of fine tip and one of ultra fine.

Awesome! I'm totally gonna try those out. They look great.

Those stones are absolutely gorgeous! I bet they will be beautiful in the piece.
