2,500.00

22ct gold, vitreous enamel, yellow diamonds, polished white opals & a Winterson Tahitian pearl, 18ct yellow gold chain with barrel clasp.

 

The Alice Cicolini Kimono collection explores the Japanese tradition of containing pattern within circular forms. Handmade in India & London, these earrings are inspired by evenings spent under the Jaipur sky. The pattern that is hand carved on miniature scale comes from diverse sources - miniature painting from Royal Jodhpur collection, antique kimonos and 17th century Syrian damasks.

 

About the designer

The sacred architecture and patterns of the Silk Route are the inspiration for Alice Cicolini's jewellery. It is handmade in India in the studio of one of the last Jaipuri meenakari trained in the enamel traditions of Persia, passed down through family generations over 200 years. A family whose work is owned by the Maharajas of Patiala and Jaipur, and exhibited the world over, their craftsmanship remains of the highest quality.

Alice Cicolini is a designer and creative commissioner, curator of several international touring exhibitions on design and a published author, including a book on contemporary British dandyism, The New English Dandy, for Thames & Hudson.

She is a Research Associate at Central St Martins, where she graduated in 2009 with a Masters in Jewellery Design. Formerly Director Arts & Culture for the British Council in India, she remains closely involved with Indian craft and design.
