Jewelry based on the sheesh Mahal

Embodying the optical phenomenon witnessed in the Sheesh Mahal, a lost craft tradition from the South Asian subcontinent, these works are composed of reflective convex glass mosaics in the metallic colors of silver, gold and copper. Their surfaces gather, absorb and scatter that which surrounds and moves around the wearer. The objects are designed to act mutable and flexible, and in some cases, age with time just as our human bodies do.
