I am a qualified fashion accessories designer. I have designed precious(stone studded) jewellery for Gem Palace, Jaipur and Adamus,Delhi.Needless to say these included both the cast and hand-crafted jewellery. I also worked for Claire's and Accessorize and developed costume jewellery and bags. I have freelanced in London where I designed a range of trinket bags for some local precious jewellery retailers.
Later I moved on to Textiles and home furnishings. I have worked with reputable export houses in India, where I designed photo-frames, gift boxes, candles, bags, mobile bags, wine holders, jewellery boxes, ring holders, cushions, curtains, christmas ornaments, tree skirts, table runners, mirrors, placemats, coasters, coin purses, message holders, lamp shades, lamps, stationary products like diaries and journals...the list is very long and exhaustive. I have designed for all areas around a home..the drawing room, the living space, kitchen, the bath, garden, the bedrooms...and also for pets!
Right now I am based in Chicago and am looking forward to some freelance projects in any of the above mentioned product areas.
