`Jewel legends' in city

Sunita Kohli and Feroze Gujral are in the city to take Chennai-ites on a journey through jewellery traditions


Has the jewellery chiselled on ancient sculptures or deities left you awe-struck? Has traditional bridal jewellery fascinated you? Have the techniques and motifs relating to some of our gold, enamel or kundan ornaments left you looking for more details? If your answer to all these questions is `yes', then "Jewelled Legends,' a series of lectures, is for you.

The series brings to Chennai some of the big names in the field of jewellery, interiors and lifestyle. Sunita Kohli, interior designer and furniture manufacturer, will take the audience on a trip through the "jewels of the princes, signet rings, animal jewellery of the courts and on important diamonds" in her lecture, "Court jewels and the king's ransom," on December 9, 10.30 a.m.

Incidentally, Sunita had restored and decorated the Rashtrapati Bhavan, the Prime Minister's Office and the Hyderabad House in New Delhi. She was awarded the Padmashri in 1992. She has also written extensively and her books cover a range of topics - from "Tanjore Paintings" and "Traditional Lamps of India" to "The Millennium Book on New Delhi."

On December 10 (4.00 p.m.) and 11 (10.30 a.m.), yesteryear model and presently consultant on the style capsule for NIFT, Feroze Gujral will deliver lectures on "The Song of the Sonaar" (techniques and motifs in Indian jewellery) and "A Captured Moment" (on jewelled objects of art and on accessories). Feroze will also go into the stories behind some pieces of jewellery. Details on nutcrackers, tableware, armoury and weapons will also figure in her lectures.

The lectures, presented by Apparao Galleries and Vidya Gajapati Raju Singh, will be held at Chola Sheraton. For details call 98410-30737 or 28332226.
