Suhani Pittie and her artisans show us how their statement pieces are made from scratch
From Sonam Kapoor to Alia Bhatt, if there is one thing common between all of them, it is that at some red carpet event or another they have sported a statement accessory by Hyderabad-based jewellery designer, Suhani Pittie. So we were excited when we heard that the designer who has been listed among the top 10 inventive jewellery designers in the world by the World Gold Council was opening the doors to her studio for her patrons to see how her adept karigars make the stunning jewellery from scratch. Her flagship store in Banjara Hills, all spruced up, was where all the enthusiasts gathered to speak to the designer.
After checking out all her latest work and signatures, we headed to speak to the artisans who are from Old City. They showed us the making of the dainty components, which when pieced together makes a signature Suhani Pittie, ready to dazzle!
Later, we met Sumit, the master craftsman whose association with the brand dates back to several years. He arduously created a neckpiece, under the careful guidance of Suhani and her team of designers. We had chosen square frames and a black band, which Sumit had crafted into a minimal albeit super chic piece that is beautifully versatile. And to see that piece take shape was nothing short of fascinating, we promise!
