Work that goes into the creation of a single piece of custom jewelry is immense, and client input is essential throughout the process. We, as jewelers, can’t just create an ornament and expect you to purchase it. Well, we can, but custom pieces can be expensive, and almost every client wants to be a part of the process. If you contact us, then you will be an essential part of the process, and that will ensure that your custom ornament is the same as you imagined it.
Now, here is a whole process of design and creation of custom jewelry, from your idea to the finished product.
The idea in your head is the starting point of the whole process. You shouldn’t think about 3D design at the outset. The first thing you should do is to think about the type of the ornament as well as the general shape. Take a pen and a piece of paper and start drawing rough sketches of the item. Those sketches don’t have to be precise as they are only there for you to see how an article might turn out.
The next step is to consider fine details of the item. This includes everything from choosing materials and gemstones to the style of the jewelry. This also includes checking whether there are elements of the piece that would make it uncomfortable to wear.
The final step of this part of the process is to approach us with the rough sketch. We will review it and make a list of possible mistakes and how to correct them. This is a part where we will discuss details of the item and whether it is possible to make it. We will start with our work once we agree that the item looks as it should.
This is a moment where our 3D designers start with their portion of work. They will take the final sketch with measures and the list of materials and create a 3D model of the piece we agreed on. We will contact you to check whether there is any need to change aspects of the 3D piece. This is a significant step as the ornament will look the same as a 3D model our designers make.
We will print a 3D model of the design in resin to check whether there are any inconsistencies with your request. We can set up a video call for you to review it or send you it via email. You will have to send it back once you check it.
You will get the estimate of the total price before the work starts. The work on the custom made jewelry you helped design will then start.
The whole process of manufacturing of the custom jewelry isn’t simple as you can see from this article. It will take a long time and a lot of resources to create one. But at the end, you will get an item you designed, and that is the point of custom ornaments.
Before the whole legalization process, big beer companies were concerned that legalizing marijuana directly jeopardizes the beer sales. There was a common misconception about beer and marijuana not being able to coexist on the market. However, it was a wrong prediction.
The beer industry was concerned that they would be sent into a rapid decline by people who chose weed over a beer. In one of their reports, they’ve stated –
“At first sight, one would regard marijuana and alcohol in general as clear rivals and that every extra dollar spent on weed meant a dollar less on booze.”
However, instead of a downfall, they saw an uptick in beer consumption in states where the medical and recreational use of marijuana is allowed. The beer consumption dropped 0.6% in the three years before legalization. However, it rose 0.1% three years after.
After this research was conducted the same beer industry stated –
“Beer and weed are complements rather than substitutes.”
There are a few ideas about why did the consumption of beer rise instead of dropping drastically. One of the theories is that the users of marijuana simply have more money in their pockets to spend on beer because of the fall in price per gram, since the legalization. This drop is mainly because the black market got weakened and marijuana got taxed.
There is a great example of how marijuana and beer overlap in modern culture. The police raided an event ten years ago which was organized by the Lagunitas beer brand. At which marijuana consumption was trivial and practiced. The company later produced a new brand of beer to pay tribute to the event. While their annual production numbers still make a reference to the number 420.
“One does not need to look far into popular culture to see that beer and weed cultures can be highly complementary,”
Other industries are expected to enter the market such as Domino Pizza, Chipotle, Frito Lay, and more. They are likely to benefit from making food containing a percentage of THC.
Many people are viewing this particular move as a great leap backward in Bangladesh’s campaign for reducing child marriage. It the parliament approves the law changes; girls below 18 would be eligible for marriage in “special cases.” However, the biggest problem is that no one defined these “special cases” in the law proposal. Experts are concerned that this would increase the risk of early pregnancy, domestic violence, and even rape.
Despite the law that was voted decades ago which bans marriage for girls under 18 and men under 21, the nation has one of the highest rates of child marriage in the world. The parliament is expected to revise the offered change during the next session which will begin on 22nd January. Although Bangladesh managed to reduce child marriages significantly in the past few years, this sudden change could severely jeopardize the statistics and become a giant step backward.
The spokesperson for the organization named Girls Not Brides, which is a coalition of over 650 charities said –
“We have worked with thousands of girls who have been pulled out of education, married off early, bear the scars of early pregnancy, and forced to marry their abusers. This is simply unacceptable.”
We can see that despite the great efforts of the officials to put an end to it, the conservative tradition doesn’t simply die off overnight.
However, as far as the “special cases” go, the Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina said that exceptions could be made in cases of accidental pregnancy, or protecting the “honor” of the girl and her family’s reputation.
For instance, in 2011, 32% of girls under 18 were engaged to be married. If we compare the data with the information from a decade before when 37% of girls engaged in premature marriage, we can see a drop of 5%, which is huge.
The most devastating fact in this whole mayhem is that the child brides often get denied their basic human rights such as proper education and free will. These violations directly affect their financial state, and most of them are forced to live and depend on their husband’s income.
