New in the Sihaya Designs shop is the unsold remainder of the Wanderlust Collection 2012, jewels inspired by India, from very affordable summer earrings up to fine, high-end labradorite pieces. I’ve also included new Poet’s Talismans, including poetry fragments from Sappho, Frost, Wratislaw, and the Prayer of Saint Francis.
I am so very honored to be having my very first trunk show at the Virginia Museum of Fine Art on Thursday, June 14th in Richmond, VA.
As I was asked to create a modern, wearable counterpart to the museum’s Maharaja: The Splendors of India’s Great Kings exhibit, I have been working hard, creating a collection of pieces that reflects the shapes and rich colors of India, drawing on inspiration from antique Rajasthani jewelry all the way through modern Bollywood.
There will be Bollywood Bling bracelets and necklaces, by the museum’s request, as well as wire-sculpted jewelry, and even some ruby and gold vermeil pieces. If you’re in the area, I hope you’ll come see!
