Our latest Commissioned Fine Tuner worth mentioning!
We recently made this labor of love for a special Violinist. This was a second commission piece using solid 14 karat yellow gold with a precious stone. Our creative director HyeJun especially loves these projects because she gets to work with the same materials that she uses when making her Fine Jewelry pieces.
This fine tuner was created using the gold melted from wedding bands belonging to the Violinist client and his beloved late wife. The hand engraving was done by a fourth generation master engraver, a specialized skill that is not commonly found these days due to the modernization of laser technology which produces different aesthetic results from hand engraving. You can see in the details in the photos without much more explanation.
Who makes your Luxitune tuners?
After years of explaining how we make these tuners, here is a home made video version of our Creative Director HyeJun sitting and finishing the final process of each Luxitune fine tuner.
The tuners in our existing collections require gluing of the Swarovski crystals into the finished and plated settings of each design using industrial strength 2-part epoxy glue to evoke the look of micro pavé gemstones in fine jewelry.
For custom pieces using precious gemstones and metals, there is no gluing involved, instead all stones are set into metal using different techniques.
Here she is gluing the stones for our Mesh Bow tie fine tuner before it shipped to its new home to a special Violinist.
The completed tuner sits overnight for the glue to permanently set before it is shipped.Would you like to see more process videos like this? We would love your feedback so please let us know!
