"I started designing and crafting sterling silver jewelry and slowly, with the help of family and friends, I was able to establish myself in the field."
"Hello, my name is Shanker and I come from a farming background. I studied till 10th grade and, as a family tradition, I was expected to work along with my parents. During those days, my maternal uncle was working with a jeweler. I was always fascinated by the fancy jewelry he designed. Eventually, I quit farming and started my own small workshop.
"I started designing and crafting sterling silver jewelry and slowly, with the help of family and friends, I was able to establish myself in the field. Initially, I had to face a lot of problems as people in my village like only gold, because it offers a return value. Silver is not popular.
"So with the help of my uncle, I set up my own workshop in the city. Today, I have achieved a lot in terms of design, quality and appreciation. I have also participated in various exhibitions. I am immensely honored to showcase on Novica. My products can be displayed worldwide and I feel my greatest challenge is to fulfill my customers' expectations."

The moonstone earrings with colored jewels are absolutely gorgeous and when worn make the wearer look beautiful. These earrings are exceptional in design and craftsmanship. Looks like good quality. Can be easily seen on the wearer.
My purchase of the Moonstone Earrings was my very 1st purchase from Novica. I was totally pleased with this purchase (but did not get around to ever writing a testimonial, sorry to say!). Then, when I saw the Chalcedony (sp?) Earrings by him, I was intrigued and so ordered them. Another interesting and lovely pair!
I love these Inspired Paisley - Silver with Peridot and Pearl Earrings! They are so nicely made, and they are just lovely! Thank you!
Today I received Pearl Cocktail Ring 'Perfect Love'-it's amazing! Thank you!
My husband gave me the carnelian bracelet made by Shanker for Christmas. It was a surprise and a beautiful one at that believe me. He ordered me earrings of the same stone today to wear with my bracelet. I can hardly wait for them to arrive.
Ordered moonstone and garnet earrings. Very beautiful item. The lovely box it came in made that much more impressive. Thank you very much.

Dear Shanker, I just received the Jaipur Magic Moon pearl pendan! It is lovely! I am so happy! I did want to ask if it would be possible to create button earrings to match? I see you have dangling earrings, but wonder if it is something that you can create? Please let me know! Again, many thanks for this beautiful creation! Gayane Palian
The ""Paradise Flower"" earrings by Shanker arrived today and I absolutely love them. The silver setting really sets off the colors of the gemstones nicely. They look very nice upon the ear and I look forward to wearing them often.
I just received my Facets of Fire necklace and earrings. Wow, they are so beautiful!! They are so well made and they are much bigger than I expected. My one suggestion is to use a clasp that is a bit bigger since I struggled to fasten the necklace. Otherwise, it is perfection and I will definitely order again from you!
I ordered the ""Rainbow moonstone and amethyst dangle earrings, 'Aura'"" as the earings for my wedding. They just arrived and they are so much more beautiful in person then they were in the pictures on the website. I LOVE them. The whole reason I got these as my wedding earrings is because for my birthday 6 months ago I got the matching necklace and loved it so much I decided it would be the centerpiece of my wedding jewelry. Overall I am thrilled with the set. They are gorgeous and I could not be more pleased. My earrings even came with a handwritten note, which added a lovely personal touch.Thank you for your beautiful work, Shanker!
All I can say is WOW my Serpent Tail bracelet is fantastic so much nicer when you actually have it on. Beautiful craftsmanship highly recommend thank you so much!!!

I bought the Blue Chalcedony Necklace. When it arrived it was smaller than I expected and the chain broke almost immediately. I returned it and a replacement was promptly provided, albeit with the same type of chain. Having said all this, it is absolutely gorgeous! I love the piece and would order it again, but I suggest putting it with a more sturdy chain.
The earrings are beautiful - my daughter will be thrilled to receive them this Christmas!

Hi Shanker! I'm writing to you to tell you that I purchased your beautiful ring called ""Green Ivy"". I was so happy and pleased with it...that I could not wait to have a chance to wear it. Before I had the chance....someone unknown to me, stole it from me along with a few other rings that I have. It broke my heart. I am saving up again to buy my beautiful Green Ivy ring that I loved so much. Keep making your lovely and unique jewelry...I really love it. God Bless you....Carrie Peoples

We in America love your beautiful jewelry. Lots of luck and happiness to you and your family. Thank you so much, Elena and Christopher

The Green Mystique peridot bracelet was breathtaking -- I purchased it as a gift for my best friend on her 30th birthday. She loved it! She commented repeatedly on the sheer weight of this solid silver bracelet and, of course, the gorgeous sparkling stones. If you have loved ones that are born in August, you really must consider these peridot pieces...

Hi Shanker---My wife loved the Garnet Cuff Bracelet ""Hold Me""--it really is a work of art--it is a very unique and striking piece and the workmanship is superb. She also says it's very comfortable to wear. You've made her very happy with this unique piece. Keep making such beautiful things. Christopher and Elena.
What a beautiful, stunning, absolutely gorgeous necklace. I got the ""Blue Universe"" necklace for my birthday. I thought, ""There is no way this piece will be as beautiful in person as it is in this photo - it has to be the lighting"". Got it in the mail today and it was JUST AS BEAUTIFUL as the photo. I have never seen so many gold, glistening highlights in lapis as there are in this smooth, blue globe pendant. This way (a smooth sphere) is definitely one of the best ways to showcase the beautiful lapis. Kudos to Shanker for figuring this out! The craftsmanship was excellent, the necklace as a whole unbelievably elegant. Thank you Shanker - will definitely buy from you again! (Also loved the Indian postcard he sent with my order - what a great personal touch!). Super fast shipping, too. AAA+++
Dear Shanker, I just received a pair of anklets ""Angel Chorus"" designed by you. They are beautiful and I love to wear them. THANKS. Ulla Maija, Finland
I recently received the Red Bouquet garnet earrings. They are simply stunning! Perfectly crafted, intricate and unique, I was overwhelmed when I opened the parcel. Thank you Shanker, your work is incredibly beautiful. I have my eye on a few more of your pieces. Thank you Novica for supporting such wonderful artisans. Anne - Australia
I love my necklace ""Flourish"". It is so much more substantial than I thought it would be. It is a real ""Wow"" piece. I receive compliments every time I wear it. I can't wait to try another piece. Thank you for the beautiful craftsmanship and artistic creativity.
Moonstone cocktail ring, 'Mystical Mum'. This ring is a sheer delight. It is well made and the little opals have a glow to them - well matched, and not dull/clouded. It makes me very happy to wear it. If you love opals and want a playful ring with movement, this is for you!
I just received my amethyst earrings today. They are absolutely beautiful. There are two large, perfectly matched stones. I appreciate the artful handcrafting that went into them. I have been asked twice about them already and this is the first time I've worn them! I was very happy to tell them where I ordered them from and about the designer. Thank you for the quality in your designs. I am so happy with my purchase.
Just received the anklet, Angel Chorus, from Shanker. Man! Usually, you think about jewelry just looking good, but this felt good! Even though I purchased it as a gift for my best friend, I wanted to try it out for myself. This is one gift that I won't worry about disappointing the recipient. Who wouldn't like it? Thank you, Shanker. Oh, would you consider making a set of earrings to match? Just and angel for each ear? Will keep an eye on you.
My beautiful ankle bracelet arrived sooner than I expected! I was thrilled. It is, by far, the most beautiful piece of jewelry I own. I receive many compliments on it and when people ask where I got it, I say ""India"". Then I quickly let them know the website! Something this beautiful must be shared!
The onyx earring 'Night' Sky' is very bold & enchanting. The silver rim surrounding the black stone gives a strong contrast to the sparkling faceted stone. The size & length is wonderful. It gives me a lot of joy to finally find such a satisfying onyx earring with pleasing design.
I purchased the Blue Universe earrings and they are stunning. Lapiz ball is larger than I expected, excellent value. They would cost more than double Novica's prices to purchase around here!

The moonstone anklet you have crafted is absolutely beautiful. I am thrilled with my purchase and wish you well. Thank you.
I bought the Malachite necklace 'True Tradition' as I'm attracted to the inverted-Lily shaped pendant. It's a big & bold pendant with a big Malachite stone in the centre. The stone is beautiful in rich green colour & swirling grains within. There're many minute round beads soldered strategically on the burnished surface, forming very nice distinctive patterns. The pendant is very striking & has a royal touch. It exudes the traditional Indian flavour. I'm glad to have it as part of my collection.
I purchased your Garnet and amethyst earrings, 'Flowers' for my mom for Mother's Day and she absolutely loves them! They are more beautiful in person and I am thrilled with the quality and craftsmanship of these earrings. Of course, I will have to borrow them every now and then. Thank you, Sankar, for your artistry, care, and attention to detail. I wish you continued success.

I ordered this bracelet as a gift for a friend, and it is exactly what I expected. The bracelet beautifully finished and polished, and it came carefully packed. It comes in an unusual cloth box that is also quite pretty. My friend loved the handwritten postcard from the artist- it truly made the gift much more meaningful. It took a bit longer to arrive than expected, but was well worth the wait. Thank you to NOVICA and to Shankar!
I LOVE my anklet. You would think that living in a city such as New York would enable me to purchase many different types of jewelry. Your work has given me the gift of owning something unique. Thank you.
