Gemstone and sterling silver jewelry in India
“With my father’s financial support and help, I have now set up my own workplace where I work with three other skilled artisans. Since I am new in this field, I mainly do the designing while they do the crafting, but at times I assist them in the crafting process. I am still trying to learn the intricacies of the crafting techniques. My father helps me by taking care of the finances and logistics.
“During my post graduation, I visited many antique jewelry museums which remain my inspiration. I have also attended numerous workshops and exhibitions, which help me a lot in my field of jewelry design. I feel that the arts and crafts of my country are dying. I wish to revive the dying art of my country through my designs.
“I started mostly with natural rocks and wood. Gradually I moved up to semi-precious gemstones. My dream is to design quality jewelry, both traditional and modern. I try to keep abreast of the requirements of my customers, providing them quality products along with unique designs. The happiness and satisfaction of my customers is my ultimate achievement.
“I feel so elated to be able to provide work and financial stability to the three artisans who work with me. I encourage them to provide education to their children. Though perhaps at a small scale, I feel that if I am able to bring smile to their faces, it is my contribution to society.
“I hope to launch an art gallery for various skills, especially jewelry making techniques, in the future. I am truly grateful to you for providing a platform for me to show my designs to the whole world. I hope you appreciate my designs and work.”
