This was for a contest at designcontest.com where the subject was something for jewelry. The brief talked a lot about (1)the different materials used in jewelry, (2)the inspiration of nature, it's patterns and shapes and (3)a European luxury feel. I had this idea in my head and soon sketched out in concept where the logo was more of a wordmark. I had an idea for a small logo symbol to go with it but that didn't turn out as well.
I could have done better but this took me over 12 hours to do and it was painful. I used the strange circle technique to get all the shapes down but I think I did it wrong. I guess for one of my first tries it wasn't bad.
