Design Star: Shaheen Abbas

August 5, 2013 Leave a comment

Shaheen Abbas crafts handmade Indian jewelry mixing traditional and fashion forward elements. She told Indian newspaper The Hindu, “It’s the Age of Experimentalism. You can move ahead without forgetting the past.”

Her work features semiprecious stones like turquoise, rose quartz, citrine, mother of pearl, and colored glass crystals. Abbas finds her inspiration in textiles (like a saree border), traditional architecture, and on her travels around the world. Find her pieces adorning beautiful Bollywood starlets, models, and even socialites across India.

Right now her jewelry is available in India, Dubai, Canada and Hong Kong. Anyone making a trip out there soon? Want to bring me back something sparkly?
