5 Designers making artistic jewelry that you Can Wear

Jewelry has long been an exquisite form of expression, an unparalleled marriage of art and adornment that transcends time and cultures. Throughout history, it has captivated people with its sheer beauty and intricate craftsmanship, quietly weaving stories of power, love, and sentimentality while symbolizing our unique individuality.

Today, we celebrate the talented hands and ingenuity of women in the world of jewelry design. In this week’s Arts to Hearts Project Feature Article, we are delighted to showcase five remarkable women-driven jewelry brands carving their own distinctive paths, combining artistic vision with the unadulterated passion to create pieces as radiant and multifaceted as the women who birthed them.

Each of these trailblazing designers embraces their own approach, yielding stunning collections that defy the limitations of design while seamlessly blending style, feelings, and experience.

So, Let’s have a look at them.

She is only 27 years old with a Bachelor’s Degree in Jewellery Design from Raffles Design Institute, Singapore, and a Graduate from GIA, USA in Jewellery Manufacturing, Gemology, and Jewellery Design & Technology. She has come a long way from the days when she started sketching as a precocious 8 years old child. Her mother identified her creative talent and encouraged her to improve on those skills. When she was in the 10th grade she made up her mind to become a Jewellery designer and there has been no looking back.

At Kavya Potluri, every stage from design to manufacture is done in-house. Every product is designed by Kavya, who is involved in all the stages of the manufacture. Every product is exclusive, limited in production, and is totally handcrafted.
