What the heck is a PrinEle and how do you pronounce it?
PRINCIPLES + ELEMENTS OF DESIGN = PRINELE DESIGNS
(PRONOUNCED PRIN-ELLE, LIKE ELLE MAGAZINE)
The Principles and Elements are essential to any art student’s education. Studying Interior Design, I learned that the Principles include scale, proportion, balance, rhythm and emphasis, while the Elements encompass shape, mass, line, texture, pattern, light and color.
I approach all things creative with the Principles and Elements in mind, from my jewelry designs and table displays to my product shots and packaging. I also like to apply the Principles and Elements to my daily life. I strive for balance, seek color, and work for a life full of texture, rhythm and emphasis. As a youngin’ I fell hopelessly in love with the flakey texture of Mica, the breathtaking colors of the rainbow, and the pattern and rhythm displayed in agate. Even before I had a name for them, the Principles and Elements enchanted me and shaped the way I see the world.
