This is my second time working with Ken on the same project (after the first ring he made for me was lost or stolen) and he even surpassed the first performance. Briefly, my top three reasons why I already chose to contract with Ken repeatedly (and would again) are as follows: The most important factor lies in the difference that still separates the best work of human masters in the field of metalsmithing from the results of computer assisted design. The latter is still rather cold and angular in 3-D. That aesthetic works well enough for certain pieces, but the classical design of my ring required the warmth, organicism, and slight irregularity of a human hand. It was intended to be, and is, a piece that deliberately hearkens back to our long human past. The distinguishability of the two forms of production is likely to persist for a few more years, I think, so if the sense of your design likewise depends on organic execution, I recommend that you go with Ken over the mechanized options currently available. The next important factor is that Ken’s updates are prompt and encyclopedic, giving the client a chance to weigh in or clarify their design preferences at nearly any point. Finally, the price is fair, given the years of expertise manifestly brought to bear.
