Monastry Collection: Magical blend of style and healing
Buddha Glory earrings from Sumit Sawhney's Monastry Collection.
Spiritually inclined towards Buddhism, Sawhney feels there is something "magical" about a monastery "that can't be explained".
"So, I thought of using my creativity in designing jewellery to produce scriptures, motifs, prayer wheel with mantras written on them and The Dorje, which is the ritual object of the Buddhists, often referred to as the thunderbolt of enlightenment," Sawhney told IANS.
Contemporary bold jewellery pieces - earrings and neckpieces - handcrafted in silver with gold layering and embedded with precious and semiprecious gemstones form the core of the collection.
One can choose from a range of designs. He offers prayer wheel earrings, Tibetan treasure box earrings, Dorje bell earrings and Bodhisattva pendants et al in his collection.
