I created this animation for Maria Canale last year. She’s an amazing jewelry designer who is still hand drawing all of her designs. She wanted me to make this film to illustrate the process which an original piece of jewelry goes through. We begin with the diamonds being created from the volcano, then the rough diamond is harvested, cut then designed to be placed in a setting and then sold. The story was designed to show how many hands are involved in the process and the craft that is still involved in every piece. Music by Brooke Hamre Gillespie.
