A State of Mind - ESTD. 2012
Grounded in craft, community, womanhood and storytelling. Lune is an independent female-run jewellery brand from Goa. Our pieces are woven together by the moods of the moon, beaches on rainy days and ocean born pearls. Demi-fine, contemporary jewellery that is forged by hand, made with heart.
“Serene, simple and slow-paced." That's how @joyeeta_dutta describes growing up in her hometown, Guwahati. Seemingly, it's quite the opposite of where she's ended up now—the movies. But Joyeeta is clearly enjoying the heady ride. Having grown up in the lap of the mighty Brahmaputra, she speaks eloquently of an idyllic childhood spent gardening, fishing and schooling amidst the picturesque tea gardens of Assam. From the Assam Valley School, she went on to graduate from the Lady Shri Ram College in New Delhi. Next, a stint with McKinsey—one of the most sought after consulting firms—only served to make her realise that her true calling was acting. Just as she paints a picture with her words, Joyeeta is now taking us places with her acting—whether it's the chaotic world of North Indian weddings in the stage adaptation of Monsoon Wedding or the old world charm of Lucknow in her latest outing as Tasneem in Mira Nair's television adaptation of A Suitable Boy. In a languid conversation with Lune, she talks about where she comes from and where she’s headed, fittingly wearing jewels from our capsule collections.
The Viper Moon family yearns to remind you of the magic of transformation. A union of the Viper necklace with a moon was inevitable—snakes and the moon have always been associated because of both their penchants for transformation. Snakes are known for how they shed old skin, the moon has been an eternal symbol of change because of how she cyclically waxes and wanes.
Her unrestrained works explore themes of sexuality, intimacy and body image. Her weapon of choice is her drawing pen. Ever since she stepped into the Indian art scene in 2015, artist and curator Tarini Sethi has been on a mission to challenge the status quo. When her work was declared “too bold” for Indian sensibilities, she together with her graphic designer friend, Anant Ahuja founded The Irregulars Art Fair in 2018—an anti-art fair offering a platform to budding, independent artists. Far from being a conformist, she’s charting her own artistic path, while also supporting new talent. In a freewheeling chat with Shweta, @tarinisethi discusses everything from her journey as an artist to life in lockdown.
