"I was born in West Bengal in the late 1970s. While growing up, I had a passion for Indian crafts and learned how to create jewelry. It's my way of expressing my vision.

"I've been interested in painting and the arts since I was a child, but I didn't receive a formal art education because my father wanted me to study science. After graduating with a degree in bioscience, I got married and had a son who was born with cerebral palsy in 2006. The first three or four years were very challenging, but I know he is a special child and I am proud to be his mother. To get him better treatment, I moved to Kolkata with my husband.

"To alleviate my depression, I started visiting different art galleries and met friends in the art field. These exposed me to new art and creative thinking.

"When I learned about different traditional arts and crafts in Kolkata, I met with lot of new friends who work in this field. One day, I had some clay in my hand and it changed my life. I began creating and designing pots and many things with clay. My creativity with this medium made me very happy. It always motivates me to create something new.

"One day, some of my friends asked me to design some jewelry with clay and they liked it a lot. Then, in 2011, I began designing jewelry with clay. My love for art is part of my personality, and I show it in the care, love and attention to detail I put into every piece I create.

"I have crafted lot of modern ceramics jewelry designs, and I'm inspired by folk art and traditional Indian arts. I feel as though this the only the beginning. I create lots of innovative designs which I'd like to craft in the near future. I also get lots of ideas from my customers' feedback to incorporate into my designs and it's become a learning experience. One day, I hope to become a well known jewelry artisan and would love it if people around the world admired my creations.

"My mother has been a great motivator and inspiration. She has been with me every step of the way and I'm really grateful for her help. I conduct workshops with my mother assisting me. There are lot of people who are involved in this work and I want to help generate work opportunities in my community."

"Cotton and ceramic pendant necklace, Naga Muse"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I love this necklace. The colors are vibrant and clean looking. The string portion is soft to the touch and you can adjust it to wear at any length. I purchased the earrings that match and they are a perfect pair.

"Ceramic dangle earrings, Naga Muse - Naga Style"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I purchased these earrings to go with the matching necklace. They couldnt get any better than they are. Bright colors, matches the necklace and really beautiful. My only disappointment is the back where the ear piece is attached....sort of a lump of ceramic holding it together. Ill never see it when Im wearing it, but I think just gluing the metal to the back might have looked a tad better.

"Beautiful earrings"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

These earrings are gorgeous. They are a bit heavy, however. My ears have been pierced for 54 years, so they do pull them down. However, the ceramic piece is large enough to convert to a pendant, so I will make 2 necklaces, one for me and one for a friend. If your earlobes are strong, you should have no problem. Luckily, I am perfectly happy to repurpose them! I love the colors and the shape!
