BEHIND MY NEW DESIGNS
"Haft Peykar" is an epic medieval Persian romance poem. The story is about the ruler of the Sassanid dynasty, King Bahram Gur, and the seven tales of seven beautiful princesses of seven Climes. He falls in love with these seven beauties and builds a palace containing seven domes for his brides - one for each of the wives. Each of these domes is dedicated to one day of the week, governed by the day's planet and bearing the symbolic colour of the princess. He visits each dome on the correspondent day of the week, where he feasts, drinks and enjoys the company of his bride and listens to her tales about why her colour symbol should represent the colour of love. He repeats this routine every day of the week with no exception.
The seven princesses were:
• Princess of India: symbolizing black colour, Saturday and planet Saturn
• Princess of China: bearing the gold or yellow colour, Sunday and the Sun
• Princess of Khwarazm: green colour, Monday and the Moon
• Russian princess, red colour, Tuesday and planet Mars
• Princess of Morocco: the turquoise colour, Wednesday and planet Mercury
• Princess of Byzantium: sandalwood colour, Thursday and Jupiter
• Persian princess: white, Friday and Venus
The "Nizami Ganjavi's Haft Peykar" poem is beyond just a story of beauty, love or festivity. It is a life lesson and teaches us to be brave, wise and generous. That is what compelled me to create this series of collectable pieces of silver pendants, earrings and rings. I used vitreous enamel in each piece to represent the colour that represents each princess and her story.
