Charana Collection

Designed by Nadia Zerunian, Silversmith Ion Radu (Nevers)

The collection is centered around a mystical element: The Charana bird. Archetypal symbol of elevation, a yearning to rise to the absolute values of the sky.

This is a collection that vibrates egually to both social and personal desires. As reinterpretations of the Roma symbolism adapted to the present, the items will carry the rich dowry of their culture and will reffer to the history and artistic identity of the Roma crafts.
The Charana bird is a mythical creature that is found throughout the Romani folklore. Charana is an extension of the Phoenix bird through its necessity to regenerate towards the end. In Roma stories it is envisioned as a black bird with a single golden feather and has magical powers that influence the destiny of men.
