THE STORY BEHIND THE PRODUCT
Artisan Organization: Mahavir
"I was born and brought up in the beautiful and historical city of Jaipur. The scenery is beautiful, and the historical monuments and warm people are what make this city so special.
"I studied commerce but, ever since I was a child, I have always been interested in creating new things. This creative instinct is what has helped me come this far. Designing jewelry and learning about gemstones has been my passion from a young age. What began as a hobby eventually became my vocation.
Feeling confident enough to venture out on my own, I started my own workshop, specializing in gemstones. It was a tough job initially, but after soon receiving accolades for my work, it became smooth sailing. Later, I launched my own jewelry collections, and I have been doing so ever since.
"I design all my jewelry, and I thoroughly enjoy my work. My workshop is set up in such a way that I can work on handcrafted designs and do casting as well.
"My jewelry is traditional and contemporary. I am especially proud of my Jaipur collection, which features gemstones inlaid upon unique designs that stylistically represent my beloved hometown. In addition, I've continued my work with semi-precious stones, which I cut and facet at the workshop. At this point in my career, I spend most of my time designing, and several artisans here help me transform my ideas into reality.
"I believe designing jewelry is one of the most creative art forms. One can design an endless amount of jewelry. Each new creation inspires me to create more.
"I love the way you work to promote artisans from around the world. It gives me great pleasure to be associated with you. I always try to provide you with my very best, and I believe in establishing long-term relationships with shoppers. Kindly let us know your views about our designs.
