Suhani Pittie: On the Cuff of History

I discovered Suhani Pittie at last month's Miami Fashion Week. The brainy-beautiful gemologist-jewelry designer made Elle Magazine's list of 10 women in India to look out for in 2007. Her designs are ethereal and very craft-oriented. The cuff bracelets are fiend-worthy. There's something really comforting about a cuff, it sort of hearkens back to armor and evokes all these ancient associations. Pittie plays with that notion by embellishing the cuffs with rocks, gems and even buttons.
