Papillon du Thé

Papillon du Thé works with craftsmen and workshops across Sri Lanka. Many of its collections are inspired by traditional Sri Lankan jewellery and local handcrafted jewellery skills that are handed down over generations.

Many of the pieces are one-of-a-kind and the process of creation involves the designer collecting stones with unique characteristics. Incorporating the Japanese philosophy of wabi-sabi, the details of the stones create an aesthetic of beauty while each contains an energy that can benefit its wearer.

Sri Lanka by Ish says

Each piece of fine jewellery designed by Papillon du Thé is a statement piece inspired by yesteryear but crafted with a bold modern style. The pieces are works of art reflective of the designer’s own eye for contemporary art curation and gifts the wearer with an emboldened sense of style. The complementing geometry and colour of the semi-precious stones in her creations is as unexpected as the energy which it exudes.
