The artist is one of the younger generation of metal smiths who are creating the new look of Indian jewelry. He has the awards and recognition to prove it, and his pieces are a fascinating blend of tradition and innovation.
A superb combination of form, function and artistry, in perfect balance, this cuff has the look, finish and workmanship of a master’s hand. And the stone is gloriously beautiful, but definitely not traditional.
Ammolite is the fossilized shell of pre-historic sea creatures. The green and blue iridescence of the first-quality stone is gorgeous and other-worldly, like the depths of space, or the Northern lights.
The dramatic, sculptural design is based on the traditional eagle feather, symbol of prayers. Wavy wires of silver on either side refer to the symbol for a river or stream. Water is the ultimate good luck in the arid high desert.
Little globes of 14-karat gold are studded across the outstretched feathers, like drops of water glistening in the sun. They carry over the glistening look of the ammolite, to the textured and antiqued silver.
Contemporary, dramatic, creative design, that is also comfortable to wear, by a new generation’s master.
