I am thrilled with my necklace. I wear it often and love the colors. The agate is very high quality and the detail of the wire-work is original and unique. This one-of-a-kind jewelry makes me smile when I wear it. Thank you for the quick delivery and beautiful presentation also. It would be a nice gift since it is wrapped so artistically. In this case, a gift to myself!

I love these earrings. I bought it as a gift for a friend and I know she will love it too. I especially appreciate that the earrings are packed so special. A perfect gift!

Jewelry unique as you are

After I retired from teaching I decided to pursue my dream of making jewelry. Soon I realized I need to sell in order to pursue my dream. My etsy store was created but I had no idea how to run it.

Alankarshilpa means - the art of ornamenting, in Sanskrit ( the ancient language of India.

I loved the jewelry I had seen on my mom and my aunts back in India when I was as a child. I love the modern styles that I have found here, in the Western world.

My aim is to integrate these two. The best of the old world with what the new world has to offer.
I strive to unite the diversity in my style, the old with the new, the East with the West.

I am a self taught artist and every day I learn some thing new. I love to knit and then work with wire too. So you may find a lot of knitted wire jewelry in my style.

My work SEA BLISS got an honorable mention prize in 2012 Soft Flex competition.

My aim is to make beautiful jewelry that is as unique as you are, a one of a kind find.

Your satisfaction is my sole goal.

    I was a teacher all my life and now I teach myself different techniques in beading. Recently I found it is beading that makes me happy and I want to pass on that passion making unique jewelry,special as the person who wears it.
