A collaboration featuring natural dyed silk threads by projectcoal. Old-world regality meets modern sensibilities in these mismatched ornaments made from recycled brass, on one ear, the jumkha i.e. South asian earring that was a favourite among maharanis [Sanskrit: great queens] gets re-invented with hand-fringed, natural dyed silk gima tassels while a brass stud graces the other lobe. Using natural colorants from the madder plant, henna leaves, alkanet root, and the bark of the gum arabia tree to arrive at an elegantly rich, earthy palette.
