ANOKHA means “unique” in Hindi… And so is this collection, inspired by Indian jewelers, who hand-carve great designs that look even more beautiful with the passage of time.
The elegant works of silver underline the natural beauty of the contemporary woman who wears them, acknowledges her dynamic lifestyle and strong individuality.
In thought of the http://www.anokha.de, I Just love unique styled jewelry and wanted to share it with you guys. The name of the shop is Anokha Jewellery, Its owned Krassimira Iordanova. They are based on Mannheim, Germany.
A bit about Krassimira
Little background information about Krassimira, She came from Bulgaria, and now lives in Germany. She has been very sensual and passionate about jewelry all her life.
Inspiration to her design:
She says, " I believe that the greatest ideas in jewelry making come on intersections of cultures, traditions and occupations. I draw a lot of inspiration from the traditional Indian jewelry making, from travels, architecture, textiles, food…My designs reflect my ethnic heritage and diverse accumulated experience".
What really got her to start her own Jewelry shop?
She says, "I had the idea for an online jewelry store for a long time. And this is the magical thing with ideas: you have to let them grow and when the right moment comes, you turn them into something tangible."
She says she noticed that "for the past 10 years (the time I’ve spent in Germany): The majority of Germany women, compared to the women in India/Mexico/Brazil/Egypt/Eastern Europe, do not wear a lot of jewelry and when they do, it is plain, and in a way, very conservative- from a very simple ring, a pair of stud earrings to a plain necklace and ….well, that’s it….But I noticed that the women I met like the designs of the jewelry that I wear which I have bought throughout my travels around the world."
Followed by that she says, "I came across so many unique designs around the world- a real festival for the eyes, but I couldn’t take them all home…And this is how I came to the idea- why not set up an online shop and let the magic of the unique designs reach the women of today.
In regards, the whole inspiration is reflected in the name of my shop- ANOKHA- means unique in Hindi."
About her creativity…
She says she hears very often people saying “…you know, I’m not really that creative….” I actually don’t believe in this- everyone can be creative; the problem is that we forgot how. I love to be around children, because they are the most creative human beings and I like to (re)discover the world through their eyes.
Her favorite items from the shops are
- “Padma” with champagne colored freshwater pearls and crystals carefully strung on a delicate silver chain. This set puts me in a true festive moodJ
- Ring “Kanya” with smoky topaz and zircons. I call it “fire on ice”.
- Woundering why? well feel free to check out her blog :) for more info
