A Decade of A Thousand Facets

Karin Jacobson capsule collection design process jewelry design sapphires show news

About a year ago, I got a call from the author of the A Thousand Facets Instagram (who prefers to remain anonymous in order to keep the focus on the jewelry designers) - they wanted to know if I'd be willing to participate in a show, hosted by Meeka Fine Jewelry, to celebrate the 10th anniversary of A Thousand Facets. I did not have to think twice. I jumped at the opportunity to participate!

If you're familiar with A Thousand Facets, you know that they feature all kinds of amazing jewelry - I have learned about SO many jewelry designers from their Instagram that I never would have found on my own. And having worked with them and with Meeka in the past, I also knew the process would be well organized and the execution would be flawless! 

The theme of the show would be "Facets" ... of course! I had plenty of time to come up with ideas and wanted to create a special capsule collection that was unlike anything I'd done before. I contemplated the word facets, and thought about light and sparkle ... but how could I do something new with light and sparkle? I came up with the idea of incorporating facets into the metal work in addition to using faceted stones. Have a look below at the result!

*Be sure to check out the video about the collection and the process of making it at the very end!

I made this Faceted Globe Ring by folding up hexagons into a sculpted form - you can see the reflections of the gold and sapphire on the inside facets of the ring.
