I blogged about the gorgeous images and jewellery of Banjara last week and now I am very pleased to welcome them on board as part of the Studio Home crew!
I’ve just been reading up on the lovely story behind the birth of this venture, and on looking back over their beautiful nomadic images I can see the extent of their inspiration. On their travels Danielle Hill and Elise Shabat ….hang on..they say it better than me…!
” … encountered a people known as the Banjara Tribe who create special jewellery made from a mixture of materials, old and new, all of which had been found and collected. They made their jewellery using a combination of colourful threads, textiles, shells and old coins amongst other materials available to them. We love and embrace the idea of making a non-precious material, precious. Combining these materials with sterling silver adds a warmth and charm to our jewellery design.”
LOVE LOVE LOVE!!!
