Currently Coveting: JamDesign Armour Necklaces Collection

wants it trends shopping jewelry accessories  Currently Coveting: JamDesign Armour Necklaces Collection

Every so often I come across a new jewelry designer whose work impresses me so much that they instantly climb right to the top of my “Must Have” list.  Where JamDesign is concerned it was a case of love at first site.

Designer Sogol Jamdar’s debut collection takes its inspiration from ancient body armor and Persian mosaic art.  Jamdar’s background in industrial design (she is a former interior designer and architect) is evident in the amazing craftsmanship of these pieces.  Each statement necklace is individually designed and handcrafted by Jamdar in the style of ancient “chain mail” armor and takes days to create.

I am having a difficult time picking a favorite from the debut Armour Necklaces Collection… which is yours?

 Twist

“The design of this necklace reflects “grandeur “ or nobleness. It is intended to emulate the movement of a scarf with no clasp.”
