The key piece of this capsule collection – ‘The Wind-Blown Necklace’ romanticizes a common sight in rainy Bangalore, where the flowers sweep away in one direction from their trees during a typical cloudburst.

The plays of scale and proportions have been used effectively to dramatize the various pieces of jewellery.
