Behind The Piece

 

Colour is so emotive, it brings us joy and holds endless fascination for us. The prism in the rainbow brings us an almost childlike excitement and wonder. This piece is made with coloured gems gathered from around the world, Afghan Lapis, Pakistani amethyst, tanzanite from Tanzania, tourmaline, citrine and aquamarine from Brazil, spinel and peridot from Myanmar, and opal from Australia.

 

 

There is no more miraculous joyful sight then seeing a rainbow, that water coloured arch of magical colour floating in the sky. They make us gasp and give us hope for better times.

 

 

Meet The Maker

 

 

The son of a farmer, Om learnt stone cutting when young. He first specialized in carving crystal Gods for the temples, but now runs a small workshop in Sanganer, just outside jaipur. He has a wonderful sensitivity to stones and has worked with us for over twenty years.

Cutting each gem, following its individual, organic shape and giving the merest hint of enhancement with the subtlest facets, he elicits a gentle sparkle from each. As the years have passed, we have experienced many of life’s adventures together. He has had two children, one a jewellery design student, the other, a training accountant.

Om now has a team who have learnt his skills, share his respect and understanding for these organic jewels and together, they continue to do a wonderful job.
