Unniyarcha Mahabharata Epic Jewellery Collection

Diwali preparation are in full swing and I recently got myself a saree with a traditional Rajasthani embroidery. While on the lookout for a perfect pair of jewellery for this saree I came across the new limited collection launched by Unniyarcha called “Epic collection”. It is inspired by some of the strongest and most inspiring characters of Mahabharata, mainly the five Pandava brothers, their wife Draupadi, Karna and Krishna. Consequently it has seven sub-collections – Yudhishthira, Bhima, Arjuna, Nakula & Sehdeva, Draupadi, Karna and Krishna.

 All the 30 pieces of the Epic Collection, consisting of earrings, necklaces, hand harnesses, cuffs and rings, are a blend of the powerful history of Mahabharata with the eternal beauty, charm and strength of today’s woman.

Jewellery talk with designer ‘Maithili Kabre’

Maithili Kabre’s jewellery brand believes in the power of beauty and strength of personality of a woman who knows her mind. Their collections are inspired by the varied facets of being a woman. Here’s the story of this Luxurious fashion jewellery in Maithili Kabre’s words…

1. What prompted you to start this Jewellery line and did you do any Professional courses in jewellery designing/making.

I am an Architect by training. However, I started making and selling handmade costume jewellery since 2004 during my college years. After my post-graduation in Lifestyle Accessory Design from National Institute of Design, Ahmedabad, I started a Jewellery label-‘Swa’ in 2009. I have refined my design and jewellery making skills and also trained in basic Jewellery making at IIGJ, Mumbai.

2. What is the theme of your Jewellery and what inspires you.

My jewellery is inspired by and designed for women and their various aspects. The main focus is jewellery that looks great when worn than just being a pretty object on it’s own. We have also launched our first conceptual collection this year titled –Galileo. This collection is inspired by the work of the great scientist while working with the earth as our main motif. With this collection, we have also forayed into basic mechanics and made jewellery that rotates and is playful, while being highly fashionable and avant garde.

3. Your most famous collection with the buyers and which age group is fond of your jewellery

Women who are fond of well made luxurious things and have an eye for detail are our customers. The age-group is mainly around 30-45 years old, working women. We widely work with juicy colours in original Swarovski crystals, which makes most of our statement earrings very popular with buyers.

4. How promising you find the jewellery market in India and do you see any change in trends recently.

The jewellery market is looking upwards as we slowly see refined and varied designer costume jewellery getting popular. Customer mindset is definitely moving away from investment jewellery to wearable, high fashion jewellery

5. What materials you use for your jewellery and what is the price range.

All our jewellery is hand-crafted in brass, with 18k Gold plating. We widely work in Swarovski crystals and cubic zircons. The price range is Rs. 2500 for our minis range upto Rs. 9500 for statement earrings and goes upto Rs. 20000 for our statement necklaces.

6. Where do you have shops in India/abroad. To which cities/ country you ship your products.

We retail at Minerali, Mumbai and Nimai, New Delhi. We ship across India and get surprised by a lot of non-Metro customers. Internationally we have sold at an exhibition in Japan, stores in Singapore and ship regularly to USA and UK based customers.

7. Whom do you dream to adorn in your jewelry in future.

A lot of A-list Bollywood stars wear our jewellery regularly. However, the most gratifying experience is always a customer message stating the happiness of the product and how they feel once they adorn the jewellery. My dream would definitely be to have more of such experiences as that is always the starting point of each design and it is great when it comes to a happy full circle.

Jewellery talk with Suguna from ‘Koral Tree’

You look at ‘Koral Tree‘ Jewelry once and I am sure you will stop to stare again. Especially their Jhumka’s made in polymer clay which have turned the traditional one’s into a piece of art inspired by the beauty of nature around.

We had a Jewellery talk with Designer and Founder Suguna about ‘Koral Tree’ magic and what makes it so unique and admired by jewelry lovers. Here’s what she had to say:

1. How ‘Koral Tree’ Jewelry is different from other Polymer clay jewelry.

It is very tricky to get a perfect finish in Polymer clay jewelry. We at Koral tree have a disciplined craftsmanship and our artisans are trained to give the best and do justice to our designs. That is what sets us apart from others.

interview-with-koral-tree-jewelry-designer

2. What is the theme and inspiration of ‘Koral Tree’ jewelry.

Koral Tree focuses on elegant yet artistic jewelry with floral and divinity themes . Our designs are inspired by simple yet edgy geometric lines and shapes that render a daring elegance to our jewelry. Our colours are inspired by the magical beauty of nature – the soothing green of trees, the passionate red of roses, the royal violet of violas or the hypnotising blue of seas. Anything that catches our eye is turned into a piece of masterpiece

3. The story behind the name ‘Koral Tree’

Of all the colors that fascinate me as a designer, Koral stands out for its vibrancy. Further, tree symbolizes growth.

4- What material you use for coloring, is it sensitive for the skin. As it is of clay what would be it’s life span.

Polymer clay cannot be compared with Terracotta clay as it is synthetic clay and doesn’t need to be colored. It already comes in different color blocks which can be blended as well to get an array of more colors. It is very malleable and ductile while conditioning and after curing at 180 degree C, it becomes very sturdy and light weight too! It is for lifetime as it is unbreakable and color doesn’t fade or bleed. It has been used in the west as a jewelry making material for over a decade now

5- Are the ‘Koral Tree’ Jewelry handmade.

These are delicately handcrafted pieces of artistry. Millefiori technique is used to mould the clay and to produce unique decorative patterns resulting in an impressive range of beads and pendants

6- How you plan to expand it in future.

Our primary source of revenue is from our website and that is where we plan to invest more. Additionally, we make custom designs for curated marketplaces like Tjori, Indianroots etc for a better brand recognition.

How to make Upcycled Jewelry from clothes Tag

I got a new dress for my daughter and it came with a blue Tag and stars printed on it. Somehow I did not feel like throwing off such a pretty tag and been bitten by DIY bug these days I thought of making some Upcycled jewelry out of it.

This was just around the days of Janamasthmi, the festival of Lord Krishna who is the symbol of Love so the theme of my jewelry also got inspired with it. I sat down with my hubby and we did some thinking here and there with sketches and came up with this form. Krishna and Radha symbolizing Love and a Bansuri. Finally sketched it on the tag, colored in blue(Krishna’s color), golden and added a blue thread string to make a pendant. upcycled-jewelry-idea

I chose Stars and Spirals from Eina Ahluwalia collection

Leave a girl in a Jewelry shop and I vouch she seldom comes out empty handed. Neither did I while visiting Eina Ahluwalia trunk show in Bangalore. Among all the beautiful jewelry displayed it took me sometime to pick my favorite one but the moment I made up my mind I knew this was it. These are a pair of Drop earrings from ‘Sacred Geometry’ collection. They have a Star and Spiral connected together at two ends of a thin chain to signify it’s message of interconnectedness. It’s one thing to wear a beautiful jewelry and another to wear a meaningful and I am so happy to get both in these earrings…

In the words of the designer the message behind this geometrical collection “From the farthest reaches of the cosmos to the atomic structure of a single cell within the body, the same laws of form and mathematics apply to everything in nature. A consistent language of geometric design underpins every level of the universe. This spiritual geometry is symbolic of the underlying metaphysical principle of our interconnectedness, inseparability and oneness; and provides us with a continuous reminder of our relationship to the whole.We are all created on the same geometric archetypes, we are each perfect fractals of the same whole; no matter how different our physicality and personality may be, we are essentially all exactly the same.

bestatwork-with-tanishq-mia-workwear-jewellery featuring Nandita Das

#BestAtWork with Tanishq Mia

#BestAtWork Tanishq Mia’s new advertorial is beautiful and inspiring. It says that dressing smartly at work no doubt makes us more confident, energetic and the only thing we women want to focus on work is being our Best and Nothing else matters like gossips and discouragement from fellow beings…With stylish Mia collection being advertised subtly as the favorite option for workwear Jewelry, the Ad still conveying it’s message. Although I believe showcasing women from varied fields besides office spaces, would have appealed to wider audience.

The Ad goes like this “To those who live in their little Bubble, that a girl can’t juggle with office and home because they think it will be such a struggle…Welllll it’s the last thing on my mind“.

What do you feel after watching this Ad, does the brand succeed in sending a message of breaking stereotype with Nandita Das featured in it???
