"Sharing The Rough - A Documentary Film" - Ernest Rodriguez Photography

This is collection of photographs from the set of "Sharing The Rough - A Documentary Film".  We were on location in Kenya and Tanzania during January of 2014.  What a wonderful experience to have with such a great group of people all collaborating for one common goal; To share the story of how these precious minerals are gathered from under the ground by the tireless African miners, into the hands of the faceter who brings the gems to life through passion and vision, and finally to the jewelry designer who looks inward to create that work of art that will accentuate the beauty of the gem.  You will never look at a piece of jewelry the same way!  To learn more, go to sharingtherough.com, follow Sharing The Rough on Facebook at www.facebook.com/SharingTheRough or watch the trailer below.  Thanks!
