"I wanted to create a simple and personal piece of jewellery based on tempering (tadka in Hindi, or oggaraney in Kannada), which is a uniquely Indian cooking practice. The inspiration for these earrings is the pot used to infuse spices into hot oil before the infusion is poured into cooked food. Visually, they remain close to the functional oggaraney pot, with extended handles that are miniaturised. The curved reflective surface adds intrigue to the earrings when they catch light. In that sense, the 'Oggaraney' earrings are charming, understated and contemplative all at once. They express a fondness for familiar functional objects and everyday rituals. Ideal for work, daily wear and casual outings."Material:
