With Pendants and necklaces the Jewellery is worn next to the heart, the gold work, an intricate frame, a sit for the stones. In some pendants, the stones were ‘studio – cut’, at times shaped in an uneven amorphous form, challenging creativity and workmanship in finding ways to set them beautifully.

The natural ‘ green glass’ stone, which is not a meteorite as often mistakenly though of… but rather [if I remember correctly] formed from melting sand in craters blasted into the geology of our earth when meteorites made land fall. Pendant made in 22 & 18k gold, and an Opal. Late 1990s.

Polished marble and a star sapphire set in gold [the karat i do not remember]
‘Osho – Marble’ is marble from Osho’s room, considered by Osho’s Sanyassins to be charged with some of Osho’s energy of Light. * Over the years I’ve been asked occasionally about Osho’s marble, and just to note that I do not have any in the studio. Osho was a wonderful being. But perhaps, one best seek Light within ones self, not through a piece of marble taken from Osho’s room during renovation. Enjoy the jewellery for their beauty, and if you truly feel the energy of the stones, allow them to reflect your own divine Light.

The original (paper) photos of this Work, were truely beautiful. Taken by a photographer who once passed by the Old studio in Pune India, his name I do not remember… This early work is simple, yet I always found it to be an inspiring design. Sliver, with little 22k gold, with a green sapphire in the front and a rutileted quartz cab in the inner back.
Made in 1995 or 1996.
