THE STORY BEHIND THE PRODUCT
Artisan Organization: Neeru Goel
"Hi! My name is Neeru Goel and I was born on September 19, 1960. I spent most of my childhood in Kolkata, a metropolis in West Bengal. Collecting jewelry and gemstones has been my passion ever since childhood. I have been greatly inspired by my grandmother who used to look into each and every detail, from how jewelry is made to what had been used to make the jewelry. I remember when I was just a child, my grandmother used to watch nomads walking on the roads and admire them for wearing huge and fancy jewelry.
"I am a housewife, I married very young and today I am blessed with a beautiful daughter. However, being a housewife was not my cup of tea so I decided to convert my hobby into a trade.
"I recently started designing sculptures in silver with Meenakari art. This was suggested by a friend, who by looking at my designing skills thought I could also make a mark in sculpting. I am overwhelmed at this new experience, and I am looking forward to continuing on this new artistic path.
"It feels great to see my products being admired by other people and I hope with time my products will be admired and purchased not only by my people but also by people from outside my country. I believe my dream will come true through this esteemed company.""
