Asra Earrings Gold

$69.00

The Asra Earrings, which has its string of Kundan glass sitting just under the ear lobe, was a design influenced by the intricate gold thread work found in the Sari; 4.5-8 metres of exquisite fabric which is wraped around the waist and draped over the shoulder. I have always found the Sari an incredibly colourful and exotic visual in India, and one that is undeniably apart of the Indian landscape.

The Kari Collection is an exploration into the magical world of colour through enamel and technique of using Kundan; cut glass set in enamel and gold or silver. The chosen colours for the Kari Collection are a mix of vivid rich colours, such as hot pink and turquoise, as well as pale, delicate, ethereal colours, such as pale blush pink and eggshell blue. There truly is a colour for every woman, every moment, in the Kari Collection. Enamel in jewellery has been used as a technique dating as far back as the 13th century BC, and Kundan as an art form began in India in the early 16th Century.
