As a New York based jewelry designer with twenty years’ experience in the Diamond District carving wax, I’ve always conjured up 3D models in my head before translating them into wax – and ultimately precious metal and stones. For a number of my collections over the years, I’ve paired stones with vibrant pops of vitreous enamel for a signature look; but because creating crisp enamel beds by hand isn’t really viable, I turned to Pure to help me translate my more recent 3D visions and 2D drawings into sculptural jewels.
The Pure team is a delight to work with. Not only are they detail-oriented like me, often precise to the tenth of a millimeter – they also thoroughly understand my overall design ethos so that together over time, we’ve been able to build a common and consistent design vocabulary for a new collection of rings. During the review process, Pure is always willing to adjust models where necessary, doing so with enthusiasm until it’s just right. In the end, with the right production, the results are dazzling!
