Artist Spotlight: Ramesh's Handcrafted Jewelry from Nepal November 04, 2015 14:04
From a small shop in the heart of the Kathmandu Valley of Nepal, Ramesh, his older brother, and other family members design and handcraft pendants, rings, bracelets, and other jewelry pieces. Using sterling silver and quality stones, they make pieces that are truly works of art.
Justin and Karin visit his small shop in Patan Square to handpick pieces by Ramesh and also to pick up custom designs that he has created specifically for The Floating Lotus.
This intricate sterling silver ring featuring a stunning piece of raw Ruby is one of their favorites.
Ramesh's family has been crafting incredible jewelry for generations. He and his family are Newars, members of the Newar cultural group dating back thousands of years in the Kathmandu Valley. The Newar people have a rich artistic culture, and that style is heavily influential in Ramesh's designs. He often uses heavy silver work with incredibly intricate and detailed filigree and beautiful stones.
His pieces can easily be worn alone or with other simple silver pieces, and his cohesive and elegant style means that these pieces also look amazing when paired together.
They are returning to Nepal at the end of November and are looking forward to working with Ramesh and other amazing artists over the few weeks that they are there.
Be sure to come into our Rockport or Gloucester shop or browse around our site for more incredible work by Ramesh!
