Swapna introduces me to something I have never heard of – Cold Porcelain. This clay medium mimics the look of real porcelain, just not as expensive! Take a look at Swapna’s elegant designs including beadwork, wire wrapping and the interesting Cold Porcelain 🙂
I am an artist and a bookworm. I am both dreamy and practical by turns....!
I am devoted to friends and family, but can be reserved with others.
I absolutely adore learning new things ,and am on a perpetual quest.
Getting to know about fellow artisans and their creations inspire me each day..
What got you started crafting?
I have been interested in crafts as far back as my memory goes... But studies took a precedence till after I got married... I got seriously involved in crafting with my husband's encouragement..
What is your source of inspiration?
Inspiration strikes at any time... I cannot pinpoint a particular source, but Indian art and architecture, the folk arts of India are a big source of inspiration to me...
What have you made recently?
I recently made a cuff style wire worked bracelet. It was inspired from an ethnic Indian enamel earring which featured a bird motif . The enamel colors were in green , red and black. So I used seed beads and crystals in those colors.
Where do you sell your crafts presently?
For the time being I sell mainly via my Facebook Page.
Why are handmade crafts important to you?
I used to draw and paint from an early age, and was used to gifting friends and family with my handmade cards and artwork... over the years, many of them started insisting on nothing but my handmade gifts... So the next step was selling my creations..and nothing is as personal as handmade. I also take pains to ensure that my creations are unique - and I do not repeat a design precisely.
