About

You can’t wait for inspiration, you have to go after it with a club!

Living in the beautiful state of Goa I am fortunate enough to have inspiration all around me to create wonderful works of art. But my love of creating jewelry started only in 2008 when my little sis living 370 miles away attended a jewelry workshop and couldn't stop talking about it.

I found that once I began, I couldn't stop. Being a self taught artist, it was challenging for me to get to where I am but I have thoroughly enjoyed every bit of it. Though my day job (teaching) takes up most of my time, I try to keep some time for my love affair with jewelry.

Though I've got a background in fine art and advertising, I rarely sketch a piece. Instead, I shop for gems in cuts and colors that inspire me and then let my hands take over.

I am not big on color when it comes to clothes - blacks, greys, blues & whites fill my closet - so I find I accessorize in color. And so do a lot of folks. We really love that little bright POP of color that catches everyone's eye.

Local jewelers that sell factory made pieces usually carry well known brands and hence are ridiculously expensive. You cant really change your jewels that often unless you're considerably well off.
My plan for my little store is to offer reasonably priced jewelry with exquisite gemstones sourced from around the world. Each enchanting work of art is a reflection of my mind & soul - and there's something for every mood! All my work is dreamt-up & handcrafted entirely by me to express the magical beauty of the exquisite material with a unique display of color and form.

My creations are exclusive, versatile, one-of-a-kind and easy to wear/use. Since no two pieces are exactly the same, each piece is therefore unique.

    I've always been hands-on creative and I find it extremely rewarding to create a uniquely different piece each time. That way you know you are getting a truly one-of-a-kind piece of art.

Welcome to Designs Inc.

As an artist by profession, I have always had a love for color, texture, design and creating with my hands.

Accepted payment methods

  • Other Method
Payment
I accept payment by Paypal only. It is easy, fast and secure for both of us. You can use the Paypal link to process a credit card even if you do not have a Paypal account.

"Did you know? You do not need a PAYPAL account to use it?
You can use them simply, to safely process your credit card.

1.Select the PayPal option at checkout
2. Click the green "Check Out with PayPal" button.
3. In the page that comes up, (instead of logging into PayPal or signing up for an account), click the link on the left side of the screen: "Don't have a PayPal account? No problem, continue checkout."
4. You will be taken to a screen where you can enter your credit information to complete your order."

I ship orders within 2 business days of receiving your payment. I also request that you submit payment within 2-3 days. If more than three days have passed and I haven't received your payment, I will cancel the transaction and re-list the item.

I do not consider orders complete until they are paid for. I hope you understand that I cannot ship your items unless your payment has gone through.

For Layaway items a 25% deposit is a must to hold the piece for you, with the balance payable over a time frame that suits both our needs. Convo me and we'll work out the details.
Shipping
I ship items within 48 hours of receiving payment (or two business days) as we know you're excited to receive your pieces. It may take as long as 15-20 working days for your item to reach you. If you need your order rushed, PLEASE contact me before you make your purchase. I am happy to help, but I can only do so if you let me know you're in a hurry!

I automatically ship to the shipping address listed with Etsy, unless otherwise requested. If you have special shipping needs or preferences, be sure to contact me before purchasing the item so that I can accommodate you.

I cannot be held responsible for mistakes made by the Post Office, such as postal delays and losses. I can track a package as long as it is still in India - once it leaves the country, I have no way of tracking it. If you want your package insured, contact me BEFORE you make your purchase and I will be happy to help you out.

I am thrilled to ship my handcrafted creations internationally! However, please be aware:
1) I will be honest on the customs form about the value of the item being shipped.
2) I have no way to track an international package once it leaves the country or guarantee how long it will take to reach you, as it varies from country to country. I can only give you a rough estimate.
3) I cannot be held responsible for the package once it leaves my hands.
4) If there are any additional taxes in your country to receive international packages, or any customs issues, those are your (the buyers) responsibilities.
5) Each jewelry piece will arrive beautifully wrapped in a gorgeous handmade box/bag.
Refunds and Exchanges
I want you - my customers - happy! Your satisfaction is my priority. If you are not pleased with your purchase, please contact us within 24 hours of receiving your order and we will work something out. I will take back an item only if it is returned unused, within 15-20days of receiving it, and provided it is in its original condition. (15 days for buyers in India and 20 days for international buyers). This however, does not apply to earrings, which for health reasons I do not take back. I am also unable to refund shipping expenses.

I take great pride in the art I create. Each piece is made to last. However, accidents do happen (the Post Office can be brutal with some packages). Just send your item back and I will repair it at no extra cost. The shipping cost to-and-fro, however, will be borne by you.
Additional policies and FAQs
Everything you see in our shop is handmade. Minor variations may occur. All of the pieces are made with a lot of loving care and devotion to quality.

All jewelry needs special care. Always keep your jewelry safe and away from extreme heat or moisture preferably stored in an air tight baggie to prevent oxidation. Wipe your jewelry after use with a soft, slightly damp cloth to remove any oil, sweat or cream that may have adhered to it. There are many polishing cloths available online that help to remove any discoloration and tarnish.

For custom orders I will create a listing for a 50% deposit on your order and begin work once we’ve received payment. Jewelry items take 3 days if we have supplies or up to 3-4 weeks if we need to order in supplies. After I’ve completed your order, I will create another listing for the second half of the payment. I ship orders within 2 business days of receiving payment.

Bulk orders and wholesale inquiries are welcome.

We reserve the right to refuse business to anyone, at any time, for any reason, and at our sole discretion.

If you have any questions or queries not mentioned above, please feel free to convo me.

Thanks for reading and Happy Shopping!!
