In this issue of Adorn : It is documented that from the beginning of human civilization, flowers were worn as body adornments; and with passing time, floral motifs made a seamless transition into jewellery. Colourful blooms and buds have continued to be the ultimate muse for all mankind because they nourish the soul, are considered propitious, and are also associated with romance. For our Cover Feature, we handpicked some of the most engaging and intricate floral pieces that portray nature in all its splendiferous beauty.
In Creative Charisma, avant-garde jewellery artist Suzanne Syz from Geneva speaks exclusively to ADORN about her transformation from an art collector to a designer – thanks to her interactions with the famed American artists of the 80s like Andy Warhol and Basquiat. Today, she is known for her visually stimulating, one-off creations.
Sylvie Levine, a US-based award-winning specialist in designing engagement and wedding rings, tells us why she loves her job of crafting bespoke rings for brides in the world’s largest jewellery market, and how the modern bride’s aesthetics are getting more individualistic.
In Style Quotient, we showcase a high-end spread of jewellery patterned with rubies and fancy-cut diamonds by Asian Star, one of India’s leading couture jewellery brands, teamed with stylish collections created by New Delhi-based fashion designer Surbhi Shekhar.
Bringing to light new, budding talent is one of ADORN’s primary goals, and in this issue we focus on two jewellery designers who are riding the wave of popularity – meet Laila Singh and Mrinalini Chandra in the New Talent section.
Our endeavour in ADORN has always been to portray the most stylish and original talent from all over the world and it is in recognition of these efforts that international icons speak to our editors and readily display their works in India’s only jewellery style and trends magazine.
