Samudra

One of the most important elements of earth is Water. Every living organism needs water to continue life. Water stimulates creativity. ‘Samudra’ is a Sanskrit term, which means “gathering together of waters”. ‘Sam’ meaning “together” and ‘-udra’ meaning “water”. It refers to an ocean or a sea.

Water inspires me to create different textures and designs. I did my last and most favourite diving trip in the Andaman Islands, India. I was underwater for almost 30 minutes and it has been one of the most incredible experiences of my life. The life that is underwater can truly amaze you! When I designed the ‘Aqua’ Earrings, I wanted to represent a glimpse of what I saw. These earrings are very close to my heart. They have a glossy finish and are very light on the ear.

The ‘Jennifer’ earrings, on the other hand, are like the white wave. They are carefully designed to show the different colours of the ocean. Lightweight, and one of a kind. They are made using the watercolour technique, where two sheets of clay are first layered, one on top of the other. The colours representing the water are painted on top. Thirdly, they are torn apart like paper to create a watercolour effect. And lastly, joined altogether to form a new pattern. In the beginning, I can never tell what is going to be the final design, till the time it is complete. It’s like the unsolved mystery, similar to the ocean.
