In August 23, TBC STATUS presented an exclusive fair of Pokani’s Jewelry and parish works in Batumi TBC Gallery.
Specially for the customers of TBC STATUS and for the wider society unique works from Pokani collection were presented: golden artwork made with the newest technology, jewelry of modern design, accessories decorated with enamel, porcelain and mosaic. The first ever copy of Ekaterine Chavchavadze’s earring was also exhibited. This was unique piece of jewelry from the house of Dadiani with interesting history...it is known that Ekaterine’s earring inspired Nikoloz Batarashvili to write his very famouse poem “Earring”.
Works of Pokani are mainly inspired by the ornaments collected in the work “Genesis of Georgian Ornament” by David Kakabadze. Confluence of Georgian gold-smith traditions and modern technologies is what makes Pokani jewelry unique.
