What is symbolic art? 

  

Symbolic is art is a form of art  to convey the hidden meaning to the reader or listener.

It tells us about artistic expression and represents abstract ideas.

However, it is not limited to poetry and literature.

Symbolism is one of the most important elements which gives depth to art;

it can be the color of the painting or the depiction of characters

that are significant to symbolic to some specific themes.

A painter uses symbolism when he wants to put emotions

and ideas in the picture which we can’t experience with our five senses.

It’s all about showing instead of telling.

What is Kilimi Jewellery?

The silver collection of Kilimi is an embodiment of the decorative textiles.

REMEMBER

Tarnishing is a natural process.

It’s a surface discolouration caused by the interaction of oxygen (air) with the silver.

However, there are more facts that affect this process.

Sweat, body cremes and perfumes play a huge part.

Store your jewellery in a safe, dry place.

Avoid moisture and liquids (perfumes, body cremes and so on).

Always check that the word silver refers to the metal, and not to the colour of the piece.

Wear your unique sterling silver ear jackets as much as you can  

You make them shine!
