Artisan Neeru Goel has been a collector of gemstones and jewelry since childhood, and her fascination has bloomed into a jewelry designing career. These hand-crafted sterling silver earrings feature sparkling citrine and round composite turquoise stones to represent the union of the sun and the earth. Traditionally, citrine is though to attract wealth, prosperity, and success, while turquoise, the purification stone, dispels negative energy and protects against bad influence.
Neeru is a self-taught jewelry artisan. Her designs are inspired by the rich heritage of traditional Indian jewelry. In her workshop, she and her assistants handcraft the jewelry molds and handset the gemstones. Neeru eagerly passes her knowledge to any of the artisans in her workshop who wish to master this ancient art.
At any given time Neeru, gives work to other jewelry artisans. Most work full-time and the others, part-time.
