Debasmita Ghosh from Ahmedabad belongs to a breed of artists, who express their ideas by using common material – in her case she prefers the humble glass. In December 2017, Debasmita launched her brand Aadikara, meaning the first
creator, and another name for Lord Brahma. In a short span, success has followed this NIFT and NID Design postgraduate. She manipulates glass to create beautiful, nature-inspired designer jewellery that blew our minds.
Life in general is an inspiration for this Indian-born designer settled in America. Priyadarshini Himatsingka is well-known for her signature handmade creations that have a feel of imperfection – leaning towards the Japanese concept of wabi-sabi. Defining modern minimalism, her austere creations in silver and gold are sometimes garnished with a smattering of rose-cuts that are specially cut in her studio.
