Tiffany & Co. recently created a ‘Dream Maker’ video that talked about how only through the deep desires of a selected few the worlds most phenomenal jewelry can be created. “While working on Dream Maker something strange happened. I discovered that the way I write music is very close to the jewelry. I really care about all the small details, the little elements, how they interact with each other, and how they create a bigger whole. I can see the same thing in those beautiful pieces of jewelry” said Abel Korzeniowski, the composer of Dream Maker.
