Mania Zamani’s architectural jewels, Iranian designer who live and work in New York ♦ ︎
It may be that the name does not affect the destiny of people. In the case of Mania Zamani, however, the coincidence might be happy. Mania, in many languages, has a double meaning, positive or negative, according to the circumstances in which the word is applied. Mania, in the sense of dedication, passion, continuous interest, has a positive meaning. The mania of Mania Zamani (but you pronounces Mània) is jewelery and is a good fortune for everyone.
Born in Iran, Mania she has left its country with all its beauty and limitations. She moved to New York to translate into jewelery to what she has been her passion since childhood: architecture and minerals. In Iranian culture, precious gemstones and gold are given to infants and brides. Jewelery thus becomes a symbol of deep bonds with family and friends.
Architecture and mineralogy have combined with the study of mathematics, the basis of all nature and connected to the calculation of geometry, that is, the proportions. She also studied gemmology and fashion. Now this mix of Oriental scent, aseptic numbers and passion has become a jewelery designer’s work, which has a good success in New York. Lavinia Andorno
