Benazir designs her pieces keeping her customers in mind. Emphasis is made on simplicity, wearability, and openness to light and movement. Benazir designs pieces that she would enjoy wearing herself. This allows her to honor her true creativity, instead of producing designs to sell in volume. That’s what makes it her art. She uses only natural gem stones and solid precious metals. Born and raised in India and having traveled the world, her designs reflect cultures from across the globe.
Each design begins from the purchase of the stone. The stone dictates what it wants to become. The design for each piece is hand sketched to bring out the best in each stone. Using a patient and iterative process each piece is handcrafted, stones mounted and accented with diamonds by artisans in Jaipur, India to create unique pieces.
She loves to use sliced Sapphires, Emeralds, Tourmaline, Tanzanite and Opals in her pieces. Benazir admits that it’s very hard to pick a favorite precious stone among the ones she enjoys to work with, although she tends to gravitate more towards sliced Sapphires.
