Making Jewelry is a time consuming process, requiring perfection from a team of artists and craftsmen from the original design to the production of the finished piece
The creation of the jewelry is a three part process: the original design, the making of an original model and the execution of a finished piece.
The motivation of the original design is inspired by nature, imagination and the desire to create the best piece of jewelry possible. Initially the designer has a mental visualization of the piece. Sometimes designs take no time at all but sometimes hours are spent massing the idea into a valid design.
The second step is the most time consuming part of this process. Without a perfect model, a perfect piece is not possible. Perfection comes with the investment of up to eighty hours per model to create. This attention to detail is vital, without it, the design would just be ordinary. The model is then cast, painstakingly finished and expertly molded.
Reproducing the original design is the last step and requires a focused and patient craftsmen through the whole process. As many as eight different individuals with specialized talents will be involved and only perfection is permitted through every step.
