While browsing various websites for my daily dose of window-shopping online – and dreaming of all the products in my wish-list – I chanced upon Le Mill India's impeccable website. Though I've visited the flagship store before, and found myself in awe of their vast collection of home accessories and clothing from both international and Indian designers, it was my first time on their online shopping website. The bevy of designers has been thoughtfully selected and developed, with an impressive range of brands (3.1 Phillip Lim, Mary Katranzou, and Thakoon to name a few) available. As I scrolled through the website, I discovered yet another designer: Pamela Love. I am no stranger to Love's whimsical, enthralling designs, and I was pleasantly surprised to see that Love's work is exclusively open to Indian customers through Le Mill. Love's work is known to have a strong tribal influence, and the designer herself has cited India as a reference for several pieces of work. For the first time, this link – between the country and the NYC-based designer's jewelry – became evident. In excerpts from an all-telling, expansive interview on the incredible Le Mill Blog (worth a read!), Pamela Love described everything from her biggest sources of inspiration to the customers she keeps in mind when designing her collections year after year. On the subject of India, she said, "India has been a humongous inspiration to me — traditional adornment and the beautiful techniques have been a big part of why I make jewellery."

"Nature is a common thread, and I would say magic or mysticism is another common thread." The jewelry, with delicately encrusted turquoise stones, iridescent and opaque statement pendants, and intricately-carved rings, each of Love's designs reflects the complexities of nature. The unique raw finish of the designs reinforces Love's infatuation with the perfections – and imperfections – nature holds. This conceptual aspect of the designs brings Love's work to an art-esque status, but commercially, the pieces do not fail to please buyers across the world. Versatility is a keynote found in her work, and slipping on one of Love's stackable ring sets or oversized necklaces enhances any ensemble you own. Love, as expected, knows her work well – and who it connects with. She describes the Pamela Love-girl as, "A whimsical, strong woman who is an adventurer – someone who wants to see the world." With each piece of Love's jewelry, the link between nature and fashion becomes less elusive – almost magical – and accessible to all.

What do you think of Pamela Love's designs?
