Join us for a session of story-telling featuring
Amber learnt the value of culture and heritage from her experiences in New York City. Trained at the Parsons School of Design as an Interior Architect, she spent 10 years experiencing sights, sounds, and textures from all over the world - from the costumes worn by icons of another century, to Tibetans hats, to the Nizam of Hyderabad’s jewels.
After returning to Pakistan, Amber started an interior architecture company and proceeded to get burnt out, catering to the whims and fancies of rich clients. Bored and uninspired, she embarked on a journey in search of something that would re-ignite her spirit. Traveling into the heart of Southern Punjab, she discovered untapped treasures of craftsmanship. After serious research, Amber trusted her instincts and began to work on designs of antiquity, using semi-precious stones set in Kundan. Her pre-dominant driving force was to preserve the craft of ancient jewelry and to initiate a revival of sub-continental heritage
Combining history and art, Amber will share her personal story through conversation and imagery. Her limited edition pieces of jewelry, steeped in sub-continental tradition, will be on display and can also be purchased on Sunday. Prices range from Rs. 4,000 to Rs. 35,000.
Amber has graciously agreed to donate a percentage of proceeds to PeaceNiche.
