"I learned the art from my father. He is a wonderful artist and does his work with great grace and detail."
"Hello, I am Hema and I was born and brought up in Delhi, the captivating capital of India. I was always enchanted by the unique and endless beauty of Indian handicrafts. Being the capital of the country, Delhi does not concentrate on just one form of art but offers a whole lot more. From the ancient beauty of Mughal art, the exotic crafts from the hills or the traditional art of central India, it is always fascinating.
"My family also has a long lineage of silver crafting. For the last four decades, my family has created silver jewelry. It was all initiated at home, so I knew the basic technique. But I never actually got into it until I graduated.
"I learned the art from my father. He is a wonderful artist and does his work with great grace and detail. We use silver and gemstones to create our designs. Along with me, some of my family members are involved in carrying on this tradition. I always like to keep busy so I am constantly working on something new.
"Our designs are contemporary but they match the taste of old and young alike. I am always excited to see something new and, when people appreciate our effort, it gives me even more joy."
I bought the Moonstone bracelet, which is beautiful. The design is neat and stylish. The bracelet is slightly big for me, but not a deal breaker. The clasp on the other hand, is falling open easily that I didn't notice my bracelet was already on the ground. If someone didn't mention that to me, I will probably need to buy another bracelet.
Aventurine Macrame Shamballa Bracelet-I absolutley love this green on green bracelet! It is stunning in its colors and impeccable in its detail. I will order again!
I just received my Moonstone pendant necklace, 'Midnight Song' and heart it so much. Moonstone is my birthstone and been looking for it for quite sometime until I came across Novica's website and admire Hema's design. Can't wait to wear it for Christmas Dinner. Thumbs up for super fast delivery as well :)
I purchased your diamond charm bracelet, the Solitary Om for my daughter-in-law's birthday! She loves it! The Om is so important to her and my son that they had it stamped on their wedding glassware. This was a perfect gift for her! Congratulations on your creativity and workmanship!
Hi Hema, I received your beautiful masterpiece last week and I was just blown away by it's beauty. Soooo pleased, thank u so much. 'magic window'. Blue topaz necklace. With special thanks, Jennifer
The malachite 'Heart's Desire' pendant if a beautiful piece. The stone is deep in color and with graceful striations. And the silver work is magnificent. I find the size gives the option of wearing as an individual piece or layered with simple chains or pearls. After looking for a malachite pendant for a very long time, I am delighted to have found this piece. And to add to all, the packaging was thoughtful with great care. A very beautiful experience in every way. Thank you!
I ordered a pendant from Hema. I received it very quickly, and I was impressed with the care that had been taken in wrapping this beautiful piece of art. It came in an exquisite gift box, and was accompanied by a very nice note from Hema, the artist. The pendant itself is magnificent. All of this makes this item a really special pruchase and gift. Thank you Hema, and thank you Novica!
Hema, I originally bought your 'mystical butterflies' amethyst bracelet as a gift for someone. It took my breath away as soon as I saw it. The intricate filigree style and amethysts have made it one of my favourite pieces of jewellery. I will be purchasing more items in the future. Thank you for making such incredibly beautiful jewellery.
When I received the amethyst necklace and earrings I knew my girlfriend would love them. Every time she wears them she receives compliments from strangers. She loved the craftsmanship, fit and how it looked on her. Thank you Hema,
I received my gorgeous Amethyst butterfly bracelet today; it is definitely one of my new favorite pieces of jewelry! Can't wait to purchase the matching earrings at another point in time. Thank you very much for the lovely creation!
I absolutely love the design and quality of the amethyst necklace ""Mystical Butterflies"" that I purchased, and so does my young daughter. I also greatly appreciate the written postcard from the artist that arrived with the necklace.
The peridot and silver Hema earrings I ordered to wear at my daughter's wedding surpassed my expectations. The online photo was eye-catching, but the earrings themselves - and the unexpected and lovely presentation box they arrived in - were exquisite! Excellent quality. I look forward to making more purchases designed by Hema!
Dear Hema, I would like to thank you very much for my bracelet ""current"". It is slight, simple, yet totally beautiful! More lovely in real life! And the amethysts of a rich, deep colour - it will be much cherished. And thank you for your postcard with the Safdarjung tomb, I'm specializing in music from that period, so that was interesting. Love from Erika
The citrine bracelet is so beautiful! your art is spectacular. thank you

I purchased Hema's ""Current"" amethyst bracelet as a high school graduation gift. It is beautiful - both classic and modern simultaneously. The gift recipient will be returning to Germany this summer after 7 years in the US. I'm sure this bracelet will be a treasured reminder of time spent here - the purple stones represent her high school color. I will watch Hema's work in the future, since I had to go halfway around the world to find the perfect reminder of a stay in the US!
I received the garnet earrings in a very short time. Thank you!

I just received my Teardrop ring and it is gorgeous!!! I am so excited. Topaz is my birthstone and this is the first piece of jewelry that I have bought that contains it! I feel a healing power in this ring. Thank you for designing this ring ""for me"". The instant I saw it on the Novica site I knew it was made for me. God bless and keep you.
Her Aura of Life necklace was even more dazzling than expected. Amazing craftsmanship

I just received the onyx necklace ""midnight visions"" and the onyx is beautiful. It's one of the largest pieces of onyx I have seen, and the way it's set really shows off the beauty of the stone. Very beautiful. Thank you Hema and Novica.
