A stimulating design reveals an artist’s unrestrictive imagination that turns vivid visualisation into reality through sheer ingenuity. An artistic piece is almost always suffused with the creator’s personal experiences and emotions, as is the case with Gurmit Kaur Campbell, a recognised and award-winning jewellery designer based in the UK, whose free-flowing bespoke creations have no fixed templates – mimicking her life’s troughs and peaks. Gurmit’s first-person account in Creative Charisma tugs at your heartstrings as she speaks about her growing-up years as a dyslexic child, her journey to becoming a supermodel and being the muse of none other than Yves Saint Laurent.

 

We bring to you the works of another superlative jewellery designer Juan Juan Hu from China, who adds a new meaning to avant-garde elegance. Turn to New Talent to check out her out-of-the ordinary creations, some of which are inspired by flowing water and thumb impressions.

 

Expressing their individual styles of creativity are 20 leading jewellers from across the globe at the month-long Summer Exhibition at the Barbican Art Centre, London. In Museum Tour, we present their unique jewellery that blends precious and alternative materials effortlessly.

 

Discovered around 5000 BC, gold has since been coveted by royalty and commoners alike across the continents. Even today, the luminous yellow metal has not lost its sheen in terms of popularity – more so in India, which is the largest consumer of gold in the world. Over 60 per cent of the demand is driven by bridal jewellery that is mostly crafted in gold. Our Cover Feature focuses on modern-day designer pieces that come alive with age-old, highly valued techniques and crafts.
