Dots as Design Element
I've curated an Etsy treasury based on dots used in metalsmiths' design. It's a list of 16 really charming pieces using dots in a variety of ways.
Dots lend great detail and repeated pattern. Circles and round forms are usually both interesting and restful to the eye. They provide texture, too.
The piece at left is my minimalist Leaf Pendant. The dots are varied. Some are raised dots, some circles, some drill holes. And the round black onyx stone is encased in a round bezel. All of this on a brushed oval platform.
