Method of figuring out the layout of your necklace

When making a necklace, I use a dress form with a fabric facing to easily stick pins into. It helps to lay out my chains and gauge the placement of each strand if I'm making a more complicated necklace. Almost like a dress designer making a pattern by means of draping.


I was wondering what other methods other jewelry designers take?

Great idea to use the dress form! I have one, and hadn't thought about using it for this. I can just slip in the blouse I would wear and design the necklace to fit perfectly. Cool!

Great idea!

I began by crocheting simple cluster stitches, but didn't like the fact that the necklace would not always hang down correctly. Once I added beads and different weights of heavier beads, the problem was solved.

Shape and presentation are always paramount.
