FOLKDAYS presents SEVAR Studios by Hila & Wana Limar. After launching their jewellery label SEVAR Studios with a mini-collection in December 2020, the sisters Hila and Wana Limar introduce their new collection one year later. The second SEVAR Studios collection consists of eight pieces of jewellery that, through their names and design, pay special tribute to Afghanistan’s eventful history and its influential personalities.

This is the “1919” bracelet. It features a beautifully handcrafted curb chain set with oval, smooth-cut lapis lazuli stones. The materiality, size and weight of the bracelet symbolise strength and independence - hence the name “1919”. Please note that the bracelet is sold per piece.

Hila and Wana Limar explain the inspiration behind the name: "Between 1839 and 1919, the Anglo-Afghan Wars took place between the British Empire and Afghanistan. Britain's aim was to secure its supremacy in the region and to put a stop to the expansionist ambitions of the Russian Empire. On August 8th 1919, the Third Anglo-Afghan War ended with the signing of the Treaty of Rawalpindi. In doing so, the British colonial power recognised Afghanistan as a separate and independent state and the country regained its freedom after 60 years."

The collection’s designs were created by Hila Limar (architect & chairwoman of the board at the non-profit organisation Visions for Children e.V.) and Wana Limar (creative producer, presenter, Visions for Children e.V. ambassador and member of their PR team). The earrings were then handcrafted in the workshop of a goldsmith in Afghanistan's capital Kabul. Read more about the collaboration here.

With their jewellery label SEVAR Studios, the sisters Hila and Wana Limar, who were born in Afghanistan, also combine their shared affinity for artistic design with their educational, sustainable aspirations – and therefore connect their longstanding commitment to the educational sector, especially through the non-profit organisation Vision for Children e.V., with their love of art and aesthetics. Profits generated by SEVAR Studios will be invested in a goldsmith training programme for girls and young women in Kabul, which Visions for Children e.V. is planning for 2022.

Please note that each pair is handmade from natural materials. No earring is like the other, but a beautiful one of a kind. Therefore, variations to the photos may occur.
