I have always loved to create..I started ceramics about 10 yrs ago.. i gradually started making ceramic pendants ...i then moved to precious metal clay and finally was drawn to metal smithing... I now focus mainly on metal smithing but i love to mix and match different media .
I am influenced by this beautiful world around me and particularly the rich textures , patterns and colors of Indian and middle eastern architecture, textiles and jewelry.
Each piece is handcrafted painstakingly by me with a lot of love.
The name TANTRA came to me in a dream... People think it is related to Tantric Yoga ... when I looked up the meaning it also means happiness in Sanskrit so I could not resist the name.
I am committed to the environment. I plant a tree for every piece of jewelry I sell.
