Handmade stories by Antima Khanna

I make handmade jewelry at my label 'Antima Khanna' and I started doing this on a regular basis in the year 2013. Handmade brass jewelry combined with beads, shells, fabric is what will be always available here. I make necklaces, earrings, anklets, and all types of accessories.

While the designs and end-product are done by me, I take help from different vendors who help me in the wiring and molding. I do not replicate my designs unless I get a customer order. Conceptualizing takes time but not the execution. Majority time goes in thinking of a fresh collection theme. Each collection has one common factor which binds them all together. I try and complete the collection of about 20 pieces in a day.

Before getting into this full time, I used to work as a Chartered Accountant. I also delved into hand-painted T-shirts and Embroidery on Screen print T-shirts while working with a Delhi based Label ' PEOPLE TREE', I managed their Alternative Bookstore as well. This was my first stint with the creative industry. I loved making hand-bound books, packing boxes and small pretty items. I also worked for a renowned company that dealt in accessories and there I understood the complexities of handmade jewelry and my interest just grew.

I balance my work now by giving 2 days to my 9 to 5 job as Head - Finance & Administration and rest to the jewelry making and exploring different dimensions of Handicrafts in India.
I write articles on my Website about different Handicrafts form of India.

With Etsy, I hope to get a global exposure and the footprints of global customers on my brand.
