Mandala Dotting Tutorial Might Inspire Jewelry Makers?

Mandala Dotting Tutorial Might Inspire Jewelry Makers?


Dot mandalas are so soothing to create. The technique is right up there with knitting, crochet and other crafts as an excellent anti- stress activity.

I thought the technique could help jewelry makers design some unique cabochons.  We could use a flat stone – perhaps even a piece of gemstone that’s not quite pretty enough on its own.  Or flawed and could do with a makeover? 

This inspiring tutorial is by Lydia May who is a dot mandala expert.  I chose this one – there are many others on Youtube – because she demonstrates how to make the dot using only Q-tips and a pencil as the dotting tools. There are also other alternatives – crochet hooks, knitting needles, nail stylus dotting tools. Look around the house and see if you can spot more!

Dot paintings are not new.  One example is pointillism, which branched out from the Impressionist movement in France in 1886.
