For a private client. Eduardo called this antique Afghani ball ring “The Beast”. It was a “quick” repair that turned into a master design project. He soldered and laser we until 10pm last night and worked on parts of it until 5:30p and then decided to go home early. He said “I’d only do this for you. I lost money working on just this one.” I said “thank you! We also have to keep challenging ourselves. Shit like this keeps you a craftsman and a master jeweler.” Hahaha. This is the spirit of the Diamond District. The kindness I experienced today, this week, was borderline overwhelming. I’m so grateful for all of it. It’s not the sexiest part of Manhattan but it sure does have soul! Love it. Come visit. #newyorkcity #diamonddistrict #soul #craftsmanship #mycity #grateful #workhard #motivate (at New York, New York)
