My association with the gems and jewellery industry is nearly a decade old, for nearly two years as a student and then working in different sectors of the industry – retail, education and consultancy.
One of my greatest strengths is in exploring the finer nuances of design and the manufacturing processes while working as an independent designer. I get jewellery manufactured from carefully chosen gemstones creating original jewels which are a class apart meant to transcend time. This reflects distinctly in my award winning jewels as well. Working as a faculty at Indian Institute of Gems and Jewellery (formerly Jewellery Product Development Centre), New Delhi, I have lived up to the challenge of imparting knowledge that makes the students aware of design trends and technological developments of the industry. For this I not only drew upon my previous knowledge but also kept abreast of the latest international design trends and the innovations making inroads in the gems and jewellery industry.
I got an opportunity to take my designs to yet another hitherto unexplored platform with the international brand Swarovski for whom I gave a number of model designs in the DIY category. I have also undertaken some minor design projects other than jewellery for international clients.
Continuing with my love for learning, I was privileged to get the GIA Endowment Scholarship for the Resident Graduate Gemologist and Accredited Jewelry Professional programs.
