Eina Ahluwalia | Kolkata
Eina Ahluwalia, India’s first conceptual jewelry artist makes jewelry that is inspired by life, jewelry that takes you on journeys within yourself and through time. Intricate fretwork and miniature sculptures imbued with meaning that serve as a personal reminder for you to wear. Her work tiptoes the line between art, activism and design, sometimes crossing over to fashion.
Her signature style is intricate and exquisitely detailed, the delicate hand made fretwork, which is a disappearing skill, with just a handful of craftsmen remaining. She has worked with them since 2003 and honed their skills to the level of perfection that the pieces are often mistaken as laser or machine cut.
