My day job used to be comptroller at a jewelry store. My hobby is computer graphics. These images are the result of combining the two environments.
I hope that jewelry designers will look at these pictures & find elements that they can put into their work. If any designers do make pieces based on these pictures, I would like to see the results. The same goes for sculptors, mixed-media artists, & 2D artists who might want to use some of these images for clipart. I especially encourage teachers & students to find uses for the images.
To help things along, I’m releasing these pictures into the public domain; this means that you can give the images to anyone, in any form, but no money should be involved in any way.
QBasic Source Code
These programs are all in QBasic, the language which was bundled with MS-DOS versions 5.0 & later. The programs are all short; the algorithms involve nothing more complex than elementary algebra & trigonometry, and should be easily adaptable to many other languages, operating systems, CPUs, display/output devices, ect.
These programs, along with some others, were used to produce the images in my gallery. With minor modifications to these programs, a much greater variety of images can be produced than I have had time to explore. I encourage other programmers to tinker with the source code here; all the programs should be considered public domain. Distribute freely, but don’t take anyone’s money in the process.
