When I was sent details of this fantastic experiment, I was really excited as this is something that’s been bumping around in my head for a while. Wouldn’t it be great to get real people, the people that actually buy jewellery, involved in the design process? Helping make decisions that shape all aspect of the design of a piece of jewellery, creating something unique and representative of who people really are and how they feel.
That’s exactly what Andrew Geoghegan has done with his latest idea, using the power of social media to get people to vote on key choices at each stage of design over a number of weeks.
Andrew is a UK jewellery designer with a passion for creating really beautiful, crafted, design-led rings, with the focus on engagement and cocktail rings. Here are just a few of his stunning rings.
The Celestial Fire Cocktail Ring
The Cube Diamond Engagement Ring
The Satellite Fire Opal Ring
So, hopefully these gorgeous rings have whet your appetite to get involved. Here’s how.
