Krysos + Chandi is a Brooklyn based jewellery label by designer Avneet Basi, who takes inspiration from the mythology and culture of ancient Greece and India. Khrysos is the name from the Greek God of gold, and Chandi is the Hindi word for silver. this is her beautiful new collection

Since ancient times, women, men and children from the Sub Continent to the Middle East to Africa, have worn kohl around their eyes as an expression of beauty and in some cultures, as a way to ward off the evil eye. Traditionally kohl was made with a mix of minerals and stored in metal containers that had elaborate and decorative tops that also doubled as applicators for the kohl powder when mixed with water or oil. Part of the new collection celebrates this ancient tradition as I’ve cast two antique kohl bottle tops and turned them into unique and beautiful pieces of modern jewelry.
