As a designer, I tend to be drawn to free-form organic “swoops”…and swoops always look better with diamonds (what doesn’t?!)  So with that thought, here is my design for today:

Meanwhile, I’ve got CAD (computer aided design) coming out of my ears. I think I can smell the wires in my brain singeing.  While I can’t post the renderings I’m working on here, I will be putting up more CAD renderings in the near future.

Stay tuned!

    This reminds me of the series of 5 you did awhile back – I absolutely like it best!

  2. Thanks, Nina!

    I knew it was similar in concept, but I didn’t have the other renderings from that series in front of me. Funny how things tend to evolve and get better with time and a little distance!
