Aazar Azirani is a contemporary jewellery designer who uses art and organic forms to inspire her breathtaking hand-made designs. Her childhood in Persia, and exposure to its enthralling cultural history, has made her sensitive to different cultural values and gives her work an extra facet.

Food and confectionary are the source for some of my most recent pieces.
