India is a rich resource of incredible traditional jewellery & metal craft, right from the ancient period to present days. For both, western & eastern world, India is the grand hub with respect to it’s philosophy, spirituality, arts, crafts and cultures. Yet there exists a misfortune. Instead of providing an innovative and new visionary, most of the Indian jewellery schools are still following the traditional ways. But I believe that, one day the picture will change to express and incorporate innovative ideas and awareness of contemporary jewellery.
