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.

These are the “Azadi” stud earrings. The earrings are the highlight of the new collection. For the first time, a piece of jewellery in real gold with emeralds from Afghanistan was designed and produced. This exception was made in reference to the events of August 2021, with the earrings as a statement piece representing the wealth and beauty of Afghanistan.

Hila and Wana Limar explain the inspiration behind the name: “'Azadi' is Dari & Pashto and translates as 'freedom'. Dari, together with Pashto, is the official language in Afghanistan. We chose the word freedom because it is what we want most for the Afghan people. The freedom to live in peace without war and hunger, the freedom to be educated, the freedom to be happy.”

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.
