The Creator's Vision: Jewelry
The best jewelry looks simple and is simply gorgeous. That effortless beauty comes from many steps even after the drawin piece is cast or soldered or hammered into shape, and accounts for the high cost of jewelry in general.
Sanding, endless sanding, all over the whole piece, with each grit, and then two or three types of polish. Look at your sterling silver closely. How were the parts put together to look all one piece, no seams? That pendant or ring began as a flat sheet of silver!
In your hand, you see the evidence of file and sandpaper and polish, and the hours spent sanding and polishing, with the creator’s vision of the end piece in mind.
