Kara Hamilton

Turquoise Mountain has partnered with Far & Wide and North American artist Kara Hamilton, to create a 12-piece bronze and lapis collection inspired by ancient jewellery found in Kabul's bazaars.

The collection was produced by four of Turquoise Mountain's graduate jewellery businesses.

Kara says: 'My interest in this project was to see how the artisans interpret designs, not to try to give them designs they are familiar with... I was inspired by materials first and some aspects of process, but their hands changed everything'.

Kara's collection can be found here.
