This chevron ring is handcrafted by Nepalese artisans based in Patan. They are part of a 25 year old organization that aims to preserve the local Nepalese craftsmanship and heritage, while creating innovative contemporary works of art in partnership with global designers.
There are 12 artisans at the Nepal workshop and 20 home-based craftsmen. Traditional jewelry making methods of hand casting, carving, repoche and inlay settings are used. Over the years, many young Nepalese are trained in this art and encouraged to practice independently, and work is then outsourced to them.
Our Urban Edge collection draws inspiration from city landscapes and urban architecture. The pieces play with structural lines, statement-making 3D shapes and geometric chevrons to create an adventurous assembly for the fun and fearless woman.
