Jewellery for the Young | Payal New York

It was such a pleasure to have been invited to view the collections of Payal New York during the Doha Jewellery and Watches Exhibition. Set at the Press Conference room in a very elegant setting – we discussed diamonds, and fine jewelry over Laduree coffee and macarons! Yes, it was long ago – but beautiful jewellery is timeless.

Payal is an Interior Architect. She has a Bachelors in Maths, and Physics. She loves jewellery as it is a part of the culture she grew up in, and of course ladies love jewellery regardless. After she learnt Maths, and Physics, she went for Art, and History. Then she became a chef, she learnt how to cook. She finally realised she wanted toΒ create a jewellery experience as its missing now a days. Everybody goes for Cartier, and other commercial brands, and looks the same. But she says, if you are spending money, why not spend it on something that is truly you. Something that speaks about you without you speaking about it yourself.

There was a lot discussed over coffee. Payal Mehta ventured into Jewellery Designing 7 years ago. Her latest collection was created keeping in mind what the next generation was looking for in terms of fine jewelry. She interviewed young girls from all over the world, and keeping in mind what they liked she came up with really beautiful pieces. The catalogue of her collection Le Bal is Fairy Tale – High School mix with some beautiful illustration; when asked who the artist was , she humbly says it was herself. She interviewed girls from Australia, India, Nepal, Europe, China, and America to know what they want.

While talking about her Lotus collection, she mentions how much effort she puts into a design. She thinks of the collection, draws the collection, and then visit expos, and fairs to get the right material to start work. Β Once this is done, the stone is traced with her design, and cut with hand. All her pieces are handmade by herself. Her standout point is that she uses no casts. She has used Pink Opal in this collection.

Payal loves birds a lot. Her first collection was the bird collection. Every year she makes one piece to add to her bird collection. The bird collection design is made only once. She never repeats it once its sold. She tries hard to capture the spirit of the birds in her pieces. They fly so high, and do not make a lot of noise. You can be successful without making a lot of noise, she says.

Constellation Collection was my favorite from all her collections. She says the collection was put together by her daughter, and herself together. To create the collection it took her eighteen months. It’s made of silver, and is very difficult to put together. Only very few artisans around the world has been able to make something of this level. She initially tried making it with gold but it looked too shiny for the night sky. She prefers working with precious metals – so then she moved to silver. Everything was handmade – This collectionΒ is very limited just like her other pieces. She has made 12 pieces for 12 months, and ten pieces of each.

It was truly an enjoyable, and motivational time that I felt I spent with her. Payal explored a lot about what she really wanted to do. She tried a lot of things, and ultimately found what she was really passionate about. Have you found something that you are really passionate about? Something that gets your creativity flowing? If so, share your story with me!

True Beauty can not be put in words,
Pictures do no justice to them either,
It must be felt! πŸ€—πŸ€—πŸ€—

Blue skies and green leaves -
Naturally beautiful just like you!
Where social media feeds us with the latest launches and must-haves everyday, it sometimes becomes hard to remember what we are blessed with.
A reminder to myself first πŸ™‚
This Ramadan let us take time to reflect on how blessed we are, and how grateful we need to be for having being blessed with so much from clean water to safe homes - the needs which a lot of people are not priveleged to. πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸšΏπŸšΏπŸ’§πŸ’§πŸ‡ΆπŸ‡¦πŸ‡ΆπŸ‡¦

Look, ladies, there's going to be a bunch of people/memes/articles/sheikhs/etc telling you that you can't do it. That you should take it easy. That they get it, your kids are young, your body is weak, your kitchen is small and your family is big, your life is HARD, you simply cannot achieve your worship goals so don't even try, its okay, there, there, pat, pat.
I'm here to tell you the exact opposite. I'm here to tell you: Yes You Can. I'm here to tell you that yes your life is is tough but you are tougher. I'm here to remind you that you push yourself all year. I see it. I see your willpower. And your strength. Your stubborn refusal to give in to all the difficult, trying circumstances of your life.
You are a champion.
And champions don't give up right before the actual race starts!
All year, we build ourselves emotionally and physically for Ramadan. THIS is the main event. This is where you get to test the mettle for yourself where all year you've been testing it for others.
Ramadan is for YOU. So get up. Push yourself. Set lofty targets and work your behind off trying to reach them. The pleasure is in the reaching. In the striving. NOT in the achieving. The achieving and assessment of achieving, we leave it to Him. That's not our business. We just keep ourselves busy trying.Don't NOT try because some one (a man probably) thinks you don't have it in you.
You do.Words as picked up from Drama Mama

When hotels really go out of their way to make moments memorable - a pretty little spread on our bed when we checked into the room at @movenpickjbrComing soon on my blog - a review of this property!This is the age of experience, and when it comes to hospitality, companies that go out of their way to pay attention to small details and make your stay as memorable, those are the tales you will always want to share.
In my case @movenpickjbr was a star except for the fact that they addressed me as Mr. Khansa all the time or am not sure if they thought Mr. M's name was Khansa πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ 🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹
