Designer’s Statement About Surya Jewels:
I hail from a family of artists. Throughout my childhood, my mother nurtured my siblings and my connection with art. She placed art supplies in every corner of the house: Pencils, pens, paper, paint, clay. We were encouraged to create. In our living room, everywhere you looked there were books on creativity. Art lived in our lives, on a lazy Sunday, on a busy Tuesday and all the days in-between. Our mother’s desire to support us came from her wounding. As a child she herself was highly artistic, drawn to sculpture, but she was never given the support she needed to pursue that dream. Ever since I can remember, she wanted to make sure that we had that kind of support.
