Super excited to introduce my new collection of jewelry I co-designed with the lovely ✨ 💫⭐️ @sonam_hemdev !
Those who know me know I’m a jewelry addict and I’ve wanted to take part in designing jewelry FOREVER. I remember the days of rushing over to evening jewelry-making classes after a long day in the office and sketching doodles of designs on anything I could draw on.
Growing up as a first generation Indian in America has been one of the most beautifully inspiring experiences when it comes to influencing my aesthetic and has always given me a clear vision of what I like. My taste and style vary day to day but my special love for designs from the motherland 🇮🇳 is a constant.
Fast forward to this year when I took the leap to start a fashion business on my own (yes, I do everything you see here as a one-woman show). I decided it was finally time to work on my own pieces. Through unexpected beautiful friendships I made in recent trips to India, I was able to reach out to some folks about my new endeavor and try my luck with the right person. I took a chance on working with one particular jewelry maker in India I had never met before (or rather, we took a chance on each other) and she truly brought my vision to life! Working together across continents purely through WhatsApp (yay, technology) was both exciting and nerve-wracking and I couldn’t be happier with what we’ve created together. I hope you all enjoy these handmade pieces that are a true labor of love. ♥️ - 2 hours ago
