Jewellery Industry Networking Event 25th January
Speakers for this event:
Sima Vaziry, Jewellery Designer
Sima is a unique and inspirational jewellery designer based in Hatton Garden, London. She will be speaking about her journey to becoming and jeweller, the ups and downs of running a jewellery business and her exciting up and coming exhibition at the British Museum.
Sima’s spend the early years of her life in a city close to the Persian Gulf and moved to the UK as a teenager. Her jewellery reflects the culture of her heritage and her personal experiences, as well as the design disciplines acquired during her academic and professional life. Sima makes jewellery that is versatile and comfortable to wear in a modern world, whilst keeping its link to the ancient beauty of its provenance.
Her work is based on transferring her designs from digital media to silver and gold, and combining this with gems and other materials.
With her handmade jewellery, she hopes to encourage positive feelings towards that part of the world and to promote its ancient hidden beauty, culture and heart.
She exhibited her first Afghan inspired collection at the Afghan Fashion Show in October 2010. Her designs have been selected for display and sale at the Grenville Room in the British Museum for the duration of a major upcoming exhibition which opens on 3 March 2011.
