“I do not follow trends. I follow my heart, my thoughts…”
– tells Suhani about own designs.
Hailed by the World Gold Council as one of the ‘top 10 most inventive and ingenious jewelry designers’ in the world, Suhani Pittie believes in creating contemporary jewelry that is unapologetically individualistic.
The biggest challenge was to foray into an industry that was in awe of precious jewelry like gold and treated other metals like silver and copper as junk, – says Suhani. The challenge was to convert this way of thinking. I came with zero background or knowledge in jewelry design and making, so I learnt everything on the job. It was a challenge but it also created opportunities.
What inspires your design vision?
SP: I’m besotted by India. It has so much to offer in terms of culture that I have
never intentionally looked outside. My design vision is to integrate the crafts of yesterday with the techniques of today and present an all encompassing palette of good work.
What do you love most about your work?
SP: I love the challenge where I have to outdo myself every day. To come undone from yesterday and do something even better. To be able to convey an emotion via metal…that’s thrilling!
