Millie Marks in Bamiyan Collection jewellery.
Millie Marks is a British jewellery designer, recently awarded silver in the Fashion Jewellery section of the Goldsmith’s Craft and Design Council Awards and the Solange Azagury Partridge Award in 2020. Millie designed a collection for ISHKAR which speaks of Afghanistan's rich history, tragic recent past, and optimistic future. For the collection, Millie took the Buddhas of Bamiyan as her central motif. By filling the blast marks from the destruction of the buddhas with Afghanistan's precious stones - spinel, and lapis lazuli - her collection symbolizes Afghanistan's defiant beauty and resilience..
