I'm a self-taught designer that works with artisans to craft pieces that are at once cosmopolitan and steeped in 400 year old traditions. My work expresses my identity as a global soul while being rooted to my ancestral home of Rajasthan, India.

MY INSPIRATIONS:

I am inspired by what emerges when the old and the new meet.
How it interrupts thought and creates room for new experience.

I love cities. Embodying the now and exploring tomorrows.
I love their sheer drive and energy.

I love the intricate carved details of old architecture.
I love the calm of simplicity in contemporary design.

The aesthetic mix in music and food.

I love how imperfection brings life to things crafted with human hands.
I love how stories are meticulously loomed into textiles, carved into block prints and hued in enamels.

I explore the realm of traditions, re-imagined through design.

I aspire to create the timeless which transcends the old and the new.

My work is here and now in synchrony with the global soul.

Hello! My name is Sapna and I am delighted to share my creations with you on Etsy!

I am inspired by the 400 year-old jewelry making techniques from my ancestral home of Rajasthan, India. I use traditional methods peppered with some innovative updates and fuse them with a cosmopolitan sense of aesthetics to create jewelry that is for the "Global Soul".

My work is a collaboration of my vision and designs brought to life by the skilled, generational, artisans that I work together with. My jewelry collections are lovingly crafted by hand and every piece has a specific inspiration and meaning.

In all my pieces, I use a special form of pure, 24k gold called kundan and I am especially inspired by a proverb from Rajasthan, India that connects the process of creating kundan with the triumph of the human spirit:

"Gold becomes kundan only after being tempered in fire."

Kundan is created by repeatedly firing unrefined gold at extreme temperatures until all impurities are burned away, revealing purified gleaming, 24k gold - kundan.

The proverb speaks to all the experiences that we face and the struggles we overcome that make us who we are. In facing and overcoming our struggles, our strength, beauty and grace is revealed, turning us into pure gold. We are all exactly where we are meant to be on our journey. I use kundan in my jewelry as a metaphor of the spirit of strength, beauty and triumph that lies within us all.

Additional policies and FAQs
A NOTE ABOUT MATERIALS & CARE:
I use only natural, untreated gems, precious and semi-precious metals (nothing is gold-plated or gold filled), and I am committed to ethically sourced materials and practices.

Since the gems are natural and untreated, no two gemstones will look exactly alike. This lends to the inherent beauty of gemstones and to the luxurious, rustic aesthetic of my designs.

Please follow the care instructions you received with your purchase to cherish your jewelry piece for years to come.

MADE TO ORDER:
Some of my pieces are available as made-to-order. These pieces will start the production process after you place your order. Due to the meticulous handmade techniques used to craft my jewelry, it will take approximately 6-8 weeks to complete your piece. I will do my best to ship it out as soon as possible. If you would like any additional customization, please contact me.

WHOLESALE:
I do accept wholesale orders from eligible customers. Please contact me and I will send you a wholesale request form and relevant information.

REPAIRS:
As long as you follow the care instructions included with your jewelry, you will be able to enjoy your piece for a lifetime (if not longer). I have pieces made in this technique that I've inherited from my great-grandmother and are in pristine condition.

However, sometimes jewelry needs repair! Never, never, never try to repair this jewelry yourself or by another jeweler. Trying to solder the piece or using any commercial cleaners will damage the piece beyond repair.

This jewelry is made using techniques that were developed in the 17th century and needs to be repaired using those same methods by skilled master artisans. Please contact me, and I will get back to you with an estimate for the cost of repair and the time it may take to repair your piece.
