Language Jewelry is the realization of British designer, Geeta Patel. Her earliest memory of jewelry was having her ears pierced as a child in an antiquated back room of a local Indian goldsmith’s house in London, the old-fashioned way, with a hot needle and black cotton thread.
Now based in the U.S, she has a BA and MA in fashion from London’s Central St. Martins School of Art. Her past work has appeared in Dazed & Confused, ID magazine, GQ, Time Out, amongst other publications. Language was founded after a hiatus of 15 years during which she took time to raise her two daughters.
Our inspiration comes from a lifelong love of Verner Panton, glam rock, the images of Slim Aarons, cult movies, Mid century modernism, Pierre Cardin, street life and gut instinct.
Language jewelry is run by trans Atlantic sisters Geeta Patel & Harsha Ahyave, an enrollment officer for a college in a rundown corner of inner-city London.
Produced in the USA.
