I do plan a lot, I get ideas for jewelry everywhere I go. Sometimes I just play with them in my mind, sometimes I doodle them in my notebook or my virtual notebook on my iPad. Some ideas balance on the edge of my knowledge and skills so I have to ponder on them a lot before executing. I have to get the different phases sorted out, create patterns and support structures and solve some design-related problems. In some cases planning is vital and bad planning usually backfires already in the early stages.
Today I experimented both on a Art Clay Silver project and making a Hyperlapse video. The clip below shows me carving and connecting two silver parts to a form I found playing with the dry clay pieces. What is the way you pick for your creative projects? Planning or experimenting? I definitely like both.
