Handcrafted using 400 year old techniques, the star is crafted of faceted labradorite set in pure 24k kundan gold and the reverse in fine silver with enamel. The dainty charm hangs from sparkling, hand-knotted black spinel beads and is secured with a fine silver and enamel button clasp.

Throughout time, people have looked to stars for spiritual and actual guidance, direction and inspiration. They are eternal twinkles of hope, lighting the dark, velvet sky.

SIZE:
Charm measures approximately 12mm or 1/2 inch.
Bracelet measures approximately 7 inches.

MATERIALS:
Natural, faceted labradorite is set with a special form of purified 24k gold into a fine silver base with an enameled motif on the reverse. The bracelet is crafted of faceted, black spinel beads and secured with a handmade fine silver button clasp. A knot is tied after every bead, for security and to lend a luxurious, yet rustic feel.

WORKMANSHIP & TECHNIQUE:
I design all of my jewelry collections and each piece is individually crafted by hand using 400 year old techniques. I use a special form of 24k gold called kundan in all my pieces. Kundan is created by repeatedly firing unrefined gold at extreme temperatures till all impurities are burned away. I'm inspired by a proverb from Rajasthan that references kundan and the process by which it is made:

"Gold becomes Kundan only after being tempered by fire."

The proverb speaks to all the experiences and struggles that we endure and overcome, and in doing so, our own inner strength, beauty and grace is revealed. It is what turns us into pure gold, into kundan.

I use kundan in my jewelry as a celebration of the triumphant human spirit.
