Artisan Organization: Babun Dey
"I was born in 1993 in the alluring city of Jaipur. Although I earned a degree in computer applications, I've wanted to be a jewelry designer since I was a child.
"Crafting jewelry is a tradition in my family. My father has practiced this art for many years and I grew up seeing the beauty of jewelry. I knew I wanted to design jewelry as my profession, and my father taught me everything he knew. I love to work with stunning and vibrant gemstones.
"Now, I have my own workshop and I have a team of 20 helpers. I design while my brother checks the quality and our father guides us.
"Our silver jewelry focuses on colorful stones, and we create both traditional and modern designs. My biggest challenge is meeting shoppers' expectations.""
