One of the things he constantly berates me for, in my journey of building a high-end artisanal brand, is the fact that I keep on using free-form gems. Stones that were cut according to the lapidary artisan's whim and fancy and didn't follow any callibrated sizing. "Yilin", he tells me in a heavy French accent, "this is not acceptable in a ready-to-wear collection."
He makes sense of course, as the lack of replicability is untenable in the long run when the label expands its ready-to-wear line in the near future. However, in the meantime, I'm going to do these pieces as and when I can. In future, these stones will have to be reserved solely for bespoke orders.
