Because it is Handmade.

Handmade jewellery has its own unique look and charm which can’t be compared to anything else. At the same time, a designer or an artist takes immense pleasure while creating it. It’s not just a handmade piece but a piece of the heart of an artist or a designer who creates it.

Being a Jewellery designer and having a great interest in creating handmade jewellery, I remember making them and getting truly influenced by it since my school days. In other words, it’s like “what you seek is seeking you”.

After having such a long journey till here, I still remember and cherish those moments and baby steps that are still precious to me. With a variety of beads, stones of all possible shapes and sizes, jewellery findings, attachments, a variety of pliers & cutters, etc. all scattered throughout my room – a struggle, passion & dedication of creating something unique and pretty. Those pretty looking vibrant beads was my world. I am sure that every artist or a designer owns a special emotion with his tools and stationeries one uses every day to create. They are special buddies! Here are a few pieces which I had created during my school times and it’s all handmade!
