From sculptural colored gemstone jewelry to engagement rings, Mark designs it all. But one of his favorite things to undertake is taking specific customer requests, adding his own design sensibility, and creating works of art. Recently we received a particularly interesting design request which we thought would be fun to share with you. Over the next couple weeks you will be able to see this design transformed from old jewelry and a sketch, to a beautiful new piece of jewelry.

At first a pin was drawn out in Mark’s signature fluid style (above), but after some collaboration they decided a upon a beautiful seahorse pin. 

While it looks good on paper the final design will be determined by the physical constraints of what is practical and what looks most appealing. Check back with us next week to see how our master jewelers take the drawing and translate it into a hand carved wax model.
