An artisanal jewelry collection that uses the Indian heritage technique of silver inlay in oxidized metal. The techniques allows for detailed surface pattern and linework to be developed. These ten completely handmade pieces of jewelry were an attempt to contemporize the technique, playing on its decorative origin but extending its typical usage. The forms and inlay surface patterns were inspired by a journey through the rugged North Indian mountains, bringing the landscape and stacked rectilinear architecture together in a single frame.
