"My father was a jeweler and I was highly inspired by him. I grew up watching him make amazing jewelry with his own hands and this really fascinated me."
"In traditional Indian families, it is not easy for a housewife to start a design workshop, but I was fortunate that my husband also shares the same interests. Together, we create beautiful jewelry. My husband is an expert in crafting the jewelry while I do the designing.
"My father was a jeweler and I was highly inspired by him. I grew up watching him make amazing jewelry with his own hands and this really fascinated me.
"I come from the majestic city of Jaipur, the pink city. I had a joyful childhood with four sisters at home. We had so much fun and I, being the youngest of the four, was pampered and loved. We also have a brother who is the youngest of all, and he is a real sweetheart.
"School was fun. I had so much with my friends and never stopped yapping – so much that, during parent-teacher meetings, my teachers asked my mother what she fed me to give me so much energy to talk nonstop. But I was one of the brightest students in our whole class. Most of the time I was at the top of my class. I was very much interested in studying and wanted to sit for a competitive exam.
"There was another thing in life that interested me, and that was silver. Jaipur is a land of gems and the silversmith art is highly practiced in this city. Many jewelers belong to silversmith families who have inherited the craft from their ancestors. However, for my father, it was a passion that arose within him and, though he never technically learned the art from anyone, he was an expert in this field. And one day, I do wish to inherit this quality from my father.
"I did my post graduation in accountant business statics, which I completed a year after I got married. Luckily for me, my husband was already a jewelry craftsman and this was a turning point for me. I haven't been designing very long, and I hope Novica will help us realize our dream."
The Surreal earrings were a gift for my daughter, she absolutely adored them and as usual the earrings were in a beautiful box. Thanks Aparna.
I bought the malachite earrings 'Forest Charm' to match another malachite pendant. The earrings is small & dainty but the stone is smooth & has very nice swirling grains. The green colour of stone is very rich & enchanting. It is eye-catching when wearing it.

Lovely piece of jewelry. I will be proud to tell people when they complement it that it was handmade by Aparna from India.
