Ashiana - Eclectic Affordable and golden

Ashiana this beautiful jewellery range is artisan jewellery that elevates any outfit. Here’s what the designer says :-

 

It’s the beaten texture with a pop of colour.  We really focus on working with artisans and preserving handmade practices which is why I will always prefer a beaten or hand textured finish in our pieces. It gives the artisan a chance to express and the wearer something truly unique.

 

Why is it important to you that Ashiana pieces are affordable? 

I think accessories enhance any outfit and we ensure that our artisans are fairly paid but we also design our pieces in such a way to ensure they are accessible to buy. Everyone should  have access to pieces that just give your outfit a boost and are good quality.  

Where do you go in search of inspiration?

Markets, markets and markets.  I love a vintage market, flea market - basically any kind of stall market.  You can find textures and patterns in old vases, pots, anything with texture really. I adore rummaging through to find inspiration.  A  vintage carpet was the inspiration for one of our best-selling beach bags! I find old coins or charms and to recreate them and give them a new lease of life is so rewarding!

Which ‘jewellery rules’ do you think need to be broken? 

There are two I think we need to break.  Firstly - “ Less is more”  - said no one who loves jewellery.  I definitely would take an Iris Apfel approach of more is more.  The second rule that needs breaking is “not mixing gold and silver”.  Mixing metals looks great - and if you mix then it suits every single skin type.
