"As the saying goes, it's never too late to fulfill your passion and so here I am, living my dreams which were somehow, somewhere, hidden deep within me."
"Namastee, I'm Narayani from Delhi, where I grew up in a quiet and peaceful family environment. We were a close-knit family with high respect for our culture and traditional values. My mother has been my greatest source of inspiration in my entire life. She has been there for me during good and bad times. She would always teach me the principles of life, manners, and everything one needs to lead a happy and successful life.
"Indian women are renowned for being always graceful, helpful, and patient and these qualities I believe I have inherited from my mother. I am just a homemaker and never did I ever imagine I would be designing jewelry. I have lived most of my life devoting my time to my family and now my husband.
"I think I also inherited my interest in jewelry from my mother. I remember her as constantly collecting gemstones and jewelries. She gave me quite a few pieces from her collection when I got married, and which I still have with me.
"However, for a while it seemed that this interest in jewelry had skipped me, and had been directly passed on to my daughter. She shares her passion for jewelry with her grandmother. She is such a talented and creative designer, that she cannot separate herself from the color of jewels. Every time she designs or discovers something new, she gets very excited. My daughter is Neeru Goel, a Novica featured artist.
"My daughter's passion for jewelry is so infectious, that I began to get closer to this art form. I could see myself slowly getting more and more involved with this creative work of art.
"I began by using my free time to string gemstones into jewelry pieces, and I loved the results. I showed my daughter my creations and she was overjoyed. In a way, I would say that my daughter inspires me. As the saying goes, it's never too late to fulfill your passion and so here I am, living my dreams which were somehow, somewhere, hidden deep within me. Thank you Novica for inviting me to become a part of your family."
Neeru says, "My mother is always nearby when I'm designing, and she constantly offers her opinions, so I began to encourage her to start making her own designs, and to have them featured in Novica too."

I received my anklet and to say the least it was in adorable gift box done in silk. It was simply gorgeous ! The anklet is simply gorgeous ! Garnet is my birthstone and I adore the pearls that set off the anklet. The size is perfect and I am so happy with it ! Thank you so very much for making such a beautiful piece of art. I wear it daily, I do not take it off. It is far too beautiful to have hidden in a drawer or jewel box. Thanks again, I look for to checking out more of your pieces with Novica !

Thank you for the elegantly simple pearl earrings named "Destiny". They look beautiful for any occasion. Your work is unique and gifted. Thank you. Bonnie
I just received "Jacaranda Passions" necklace in the mail. This is by far the most beautiful necklace I have ever worn, and probably the most beautiful I have ever seen too! The colors work together in this magical way -- both contrasting and complementing one another. The beads are so delicate, cascading, and if you can believe this, they feel soft around the neck. It amazing to see how a piece of well-made and well-conceived jewelry can add to one's appearance, wardrobe, and most of all, sense of joy! Thank you, Narayani!
