UPAJATIYA EARRINGS

Characteristic of many desert regions in India are the stunningly elaborate, sturdy & super-conspicuous jewellery ornaments that adorn both men & women ...with animals not exempt! The intimate relationship between a specific tribe, their land, economy & traditions, are displayed in the most flashy & flamboyant way.

 

These earrings combine solid (filled), granulations (tiny balls), piercings, etching & cut-work techniques. Often referencing the immediate environment, & presenting a story of the people, beautification is taken to a whole new level, against a backdrop of stark barrenness. Designed by me, Rani.Cee, & handmade with scrupulous delicacy, these pieces speak to those surviving, treasured traditions.

SHALA & SHRINE NECKLACES

The evocative shapes, luminous light & rich symbolism of India is daily encountered in both home & temple. From the disarming beauty of a floating flower, to the reverence shown in a stone relief ...all the way to the pierced perforations of a pagoda screen.

 

This collection of NECKLACES seeks to encapsulate all that is observable in the ordinary & extraordinary lives of people & pilgrims. Semi-precious stones, fine fabric, sterling silver & 24kt gold-dipped, filigree & filled pendants, are handcrafted to enhance, enchant & effuse.

 

All necklaces are conceived & made by me, Rani.Cee

VINTAGE RANI EARRINGS

My 'Zenana' EARRINGS are exquisitely delicate, meticulously handcrafted gems of sterling silver & 24kt Indian gold-dip. Each piece encapsulates the allure & romanticism of the 'royal ladies at court' in the dying days of the British Raj, when age-old grandeur encountered fresh and vital new possibilities.

 

Designs mix organic, earthy-swirls, geometric lines & nouveau angles - part deco, part tribal, part traditional - reflecting a  sensuous synthesis of  the old & new, & emphasising refinement in both form & detail. The bells, whistles & bewitching accoutrements of the princesses in their 'Zenana' (ladies quarters) would have surely incorporated something of the beguiling beauty & promise of these pieces!
