"I joined my parents business after I graduated with a degree in Commerce, but after six years I realized that it wasn't really for me. I left the family business to join a jewelry manufacturing company, during which time I learned the silversmith's craft and just loved it! I knew then that this is what I was meant to do.
"I decided to venture out on my own, so I started a workshop along with two talented artisans in 2003. Now there are eight of us working together as a team.
"Marketing our products was not an easy task. I used to visit showrooms and shops showing my designs. Some liked them and some didn't. I never gave up and continued creating more jewelry collections. Today, I have my own shop where I sell my creations.
"I must say, meeting up with Novica has come at the right time. I want to showcase my products internationally, so it is a great opportunity. Most of my designs reflect the tradition of Rajasthan, and this is what is unique about my products."
