By painting with enamels and sketching through wire, I try to create playful yet delicate compositions. I love to represent Indian motifs and imagery in a unique way, rendering a fresh perspective to Indian Jewelry. Colors are also very important elements in my Work. It’s the joy of making; making something new, fresh and stretching the boundaries of what jewelry is and how it should be made, that motivates me.
My current work is designed around the narrative of Japanese term NATSUKASHII; bitter sweet remembrances. Here I used elements of my fond memories and mold them into sculptural Jewelry pieces. These pieces are the window to my past experiences and my cultural identity. The back of the brooches are in contrast to the front, representing the two Worlds immigrant artists constantly come to face with. My designs are intersection of these contrasting experiences.
