Kadambari Jewels. –
“ If you want to own something nobody else will have …”
Kadambari is the creative expression of Rashantha Devanesan who has been designing and crafting Kadambari jewels since 2008.
Kadambari’s collections reflect the rich heritage of the Silk Road and Asia, combining genuine antique pendants and beads with semi-precious and natural stones to create contemporary pieces of jewellery that take you back to an era of cross- cultural splendor and diversity.
Each item of beautiful jewellery has a story woven into it, pendants that have come from different parts of our world and have travelled sometimes extensively ,is lovingly re-created by the designer and is a unique piece of wearable art.
“ Making Jewellery is a gift that came to me at a difficult time in my life and when I work with these beautiful old pieces of jewellery and natural gemstones, the peace it brings me is something I value greatly and I am constantly thankful for the joy it brings me. Peace and joy must be shared if it is to be of any real value. The way I have chosen to share is by making a few chosen charities that support women and young people in need a part of my life with the proceeds from the sale of my jewellery. “ (Rashantha)
