International Awards in 2009

Thailand International jewellery awards 2009- Finalist in Executive category.

SWAROVSKI Enlighten Passion Topaz Jewellery design competition

In 2008, Swarovski conducted an online jewellery design competition where artists from all over the globe were invited to design jewellery around "Passion Topaz" Gemstones produced by Swarovski.

Design (above) was awarded second place in "Passion DeLuxe" Category. It is named "Entangled" as it was inspired from entangled wires of laptop charger,mobile charger, heater lying in my room. (Guess I am not that organised person but my point was that the mess around you inculcates a design of its own.) Hence, the mess of wires in my room gave me a pattern to design.

Passion topaz stones are set in bezel setting in 18ct gold triangles which are beaded in black nylon thread mesh enclosed by lobster clasps at back.

The two-finger design (above) was selected among Top 30 in Basic Passion category. It is named "Moving Colours" as the plates paved with different coloured gemstones rotate and can be worn in different styles.
