Trend report : Asymmetry

One of my favourite trends lately. Even without any intension I always hide a little asymmetry in most of my pieces. A stone with a different color, or a slightly different shape or an overall size difference with a pair of earring for example…I guess this is one of the significance of the “LIKO” style.

“Asymmetry means without symmetry”
The term, however, is usually used to describe a kind of balance that does not rely on symmetry: asymmetrical balance. ”
(2002 James T. Saw)

There is no simple formula for achieving balance in asymmetrical balance, so the designer must sense whether or not the composition still works and gives a good impression and overall look this way. Check out some of the pictures I collected, not only from jewellery references.
