When brainstorming for a new Faini creation; many styles, colors, options and ideas come into play. It’s very common for us to come up with multiple design concepts for one particular piece of jewelry to utilize the diamonds and/or gemstones that have been chosen for the project.
In many cases this process is done with our client involved and the piece is for a specific person. We work with the individual or couple to ensure the end result matches what is in their mind and ultimately reflects that person’s life.
In March of 2015, three ideas were shared with our Faini fans our Facebook Page to let them decide on the final design. We began to refer to this piece as a winning “Facebook Decides Design.”
We cannot be any happier with the feedback, the choice and the design that was chosen by our fans. The choice was style #3 which included one rectangular emerald cut emerald and two matched uniquely cut diamonds.
This design then went into production and the closer it came to final inspection our excitement grew, as it does with most creations at Faini Designs Jewelry Studio. That is the ring pictured below, with torch work being applied to it.
The end result was absolutely beautiful in all our eyes. We were so impressed with this creation we chose it to be entered into an annual jewelry competition. A highly recognized Jewelry Design Competition held by the Nebraska/South Dakota Jewelers Association.
Heads were turned as the winner for that category was announced to be the “Facebook Decides Design.” Cheers to everyone involved in any way with that project.
With the huge success we had with that project; why not do it again? You may see in the future that the visual is different by not using computer generated designs to choose from but counter sketch designs.
The above image was the very first “Facebook Decides Design” showing only by hand drawn sketches. Another note about this project was that design’s purpose was never revealed. Each design concept was to be adapted to create a Mother’s ring. Each one was purposefully designed in a way that allowed small changes to make the ring unique to a Mother’s specific family and its members. Below are the pictures of the design chosen with most votes – B –.
The finished piece will be revealed soon on Facebook, just in time for Mother’s Day. The gemstones in the ring have been soft set allowing them to be changed out with the necessary birthstones needed to match up with the family that could include Moms, Dads, children, grand children etc.
Be watching for your next opportunity to voice your opinion on another Faini creation.
We Love our Fans!!!
