When you start seeing your vision materializing it opens up an appetite for more…
Then you realize turning a mere vision into reality is a completely different story, let alone a miniature three dimensional jewel consisting of manifold elements to be considered and much more….
From afar jewels might seem as simple objects but when we start to look closer we discover a whole world that must interconnect in order to be successfully accomplished.
In July this year I posted a glimpse of imagination I had for my next pinky ring. A few months later a twist landed (mentally & literally) and I began the designing journey.
What started as a simple design curios turned into a quest to somehow bring my imagination into a precise reality and the many interesting hurdles I needed to overcome along the way…, and I am not talking diamond design… YET!
No doubt diamond design will be The Highlight of this unique journey in our subsequent posts.
We are about to embark on a very unique jewel crafting journey which will be documented with snips along the way…, look out for it by following #gemconceptspinky5
This picture is displaying my original hand drawn “twist” (left) and a preliminary expression of its reality (right). On the bottom a real view of the antique Brazilian emerald which will be set upside down in order to reveal its old world faceting and mysterious wonder.
This unique designing process which seems to me more like an architectural quest will at the end of the day be able to flowingly accommodate the unique diamonds cuts I envisioned from the start.
I will be posting here on our unique Insta-Blog page various snips and explanations throughout this remarkable journey. Current status: after months of on and off, I am finally reaching the end of the metal design, or so I am hoping.
Now The diamond designing process begins!
To be continued of course!
