I have always considered a jewel to be the product of a variety of inspirational processes.
It can result from an idea that we want to transform into something concrete, from a stone that already contains it within itself and evokes it,
or from something significant that we might chance upon in everyday life. However, even though you might have a picture of the final product in your mind,
it is essential to make a sketch of it, a pencil drawing that you can keep coming back to over a period, enabling you to choose
the best method, tools and materials to create it.
