When you pick up a rock, it may well be nothing but a common piece of rock. But there are many faces to any common rock; if you look closely enough, one of those faces at a split moment would reflect light at an unexpected angle to anyone’s surprise. From there we cut with precision, polish with love, smooth with care. It becomes a gem in itself.
We want to share that moment with you at Facet Studio.
