To Hyderabad with Shafaq
Jewellery designer Shafaq Habib showcased her latest collection in Karachi. The collection included long strands of pearls and polki diamonds, emeralds, rubies and an assortment of pearls crafted in traditional jhumkas, Hyderabadi guluband, kiran phool, sat lara, chandbalas and magars with a modern twist. The polki diamond chokers, tikas and jhoomers were inspired by the Nizam of Hyderabad’s collection. “I went to Hyderabad in India a few years back and visited an exhibition featuring the jewellery collection of the Nizam of Hyderabad. The jewellery made a great impact on me and I have come up with a few inspired pieces with a contemporary touch,” says Shafaq Habib.
