Bohemian jewelry inspired by the vibrant colors of India.
Hello and thank you for stopping by and knowing more about me!
I'm Reshma Sandell- the designer and creator behind the jewelry line Ahkriti! In Sanskrit, Ahkriti means "a beautiful form". Bold and bright colours energize me.
You will note that my designs/creations are vibrant with a mix of gemstones and silver and and are mostly named after lovely Indian girl names. Designing jewelry is my destress mantra and I love having to see how beautifully my designs unfold!
I was born in the city of Bangalore,India. I love wearing Kanjeevaram saris, the smell of ground coffee, eating pakoras (an indian snack) on a rainy day.
My husband always chided me that I would spend my money on expensive jewelry and that I should learn to design myself. On a very sunny Summer morning in 2008, I was packed off to a beading class. My love for designing jewelry had begun.
All designs that you see in my shop are from my home studio.
Most of my designs are a fusion of Indian and western designs. They are one of a kind and usually very limited in design.
I also photograph, package and ship out all the jewelry myself.
As a woman, I feel that jewelry should speak the mood that you are in and I hope that my style will bring you to my shop and you will be owners of beautiful one of a kind jewelry.
I am also a homemaker and mother of 2 beautiful girls, moonlighting to share wonderful handmade jewellery.
Thank you for stopping by. Feel free to contact me anytime.
Stay in touch-
