When I create a new jewelry design, I'll often only make one piece. I might wear it to see if there are any problems with it. (Will the clasp hold? does the necklace hang properly? ) Before making multiples of the same item I might show it around to gauge interest or list it on Etsy to see if it sells .
When I'm finished I photocopy the jewelry. Unlike a photograph, a photocopy will give you a better idea of dimensions since it's at the same scale as the jewelry.
