Jewellery & Metal (MA)
Born and brought up in India, I am Shivani Tyagi, an ambitious jeweller working with pearls lately. In 2018 I completed my under graduation at the National Institute of Fashion Technology, New Delhi, Bachelor of design, in Fashion & lifestyle accessories. The same year I entered RCA to pursue my MA in Jewellery & Metal. I am associated with reputed organizations like UN Women, Van Cleef & Arpels, and Lovisa. My work has been exhibited at Exhibit 320, India (2019), The RCA Dyson Gallery, London (2019), The Sunny Art Centre, London (2020), Hiroshige Gallery, Japan (2020) and The Gallery No Space, China (2020).
2020 for me is all about establishing myself, as a jewellery brand that focuses on challenging the preconceptions that exist around Pearls and Mother of Pearl. Stereotypes motivate me because they urge me to break them. In Pearls, I am putting the spotlight on baroque pearls, to elevate their identity in the industry. With my work, I intend to place the Mother of Pearl in Fine jewellery shelves not just as jewellery pieces but as objects of art which hold unique aesthetic. It is primary for me to bring about creative freshness in the jewellery around the world with my designs.
