Authentic spices from South India like black pepper, star anise, cardamom, and more are moulded into stunning jewellery with a sustainable approach!
It's an open secret that the aroma of the spices can easily linger an Indian heart. Our kitchens are hotbeds of wafting fragrances — the fennel-like aroma of star anise, the barnyard-like scent of white pepper, the hay-like fragrance of saffron, the pungency of fenugreek seeds and the list goes on. While we mostly associate spices with culinary delicacies, jewellery brand Tangerine helmed by NIFT alumni Shristi Ghunawat has reimagined spices in a unique way — with bio jewellery!
The brand recently came to Hyderabad for a sustainable fashion pop-up where it unveiled its new Spice Collection. The collection has natural spices like black pepper, star anise, cardamom, cinnamon, juglan and more clad in 24kt gold. They are sourced from the famous spice hubs of South India and are moulded into earrings, bracelets, rings and neckpieces. Moreover, the collection thrives on sustainability as it uses upcycled materials which otherwise have been discarded. We talk to Shristi who decodes the concept of bio-jewellery and her inspiration behind the collection.
