Once again we are back with something really interesting in our age-old series "Women at Their Creative Best". You might wonder why age-old? Well after all, we have featured quite a few talented women in this series for more than a year now! So, let's check who is next on this platform. Rather who are the next. Yes, this time we have two wonderful faces from the field of jewellery designing... One, the chirpy young Shruthi Pendyala, Owner, Quirky jewellery. The other, Chitra Manohar, Owner, Chitra's Jewel Art!
|Quirky by Shruthi... Quite Chic!!|
Lovely and yet inspiring! Though, we didn't get a chance to review her product, which is what we do with each and every brand, yet we found her collection innovative, and visually appealing. There is a mix of characters in her pieces. From beads to thread, you get to see everything...
And, why not? Belonging to the city like Hyderabad, where women still give preference to the traditional jewellery, Pendyala still has been able to crave a niche successfully. " I feel there is a segment which is ready to experiment. also, my brand is just not limited to down south, women from all around are going for it," she sums.
So, with Quirky it's time for women to bring their crazy side best!!

Today, Manohar not just caters to the Indian audience, she also has a wonderful clientele in the US. Same like Pendyala, we haven't reviewed her jewellery too, but assume that the users have never faced any problems. " With my jewellery, I so far haven't heard about any such issues. Also, with me it takes time, so if women are ready to wait for at least a fortnight, I make jewellery as per their requirement,' she explained.
We finally asked if south India is an easy market for selling such modern, semi precious, beaded jewellery, to which Manohar says. " Of course not! My major buyers are from the other parts of the country. South India still is into traditional jewellery, they still prefer the gold pieces. But, the trends are changing, and at least the younger women are ready to experiment," she summed.
Whether the trends are changing or not, for you women out there, these lovely women are certainly taking great efforts to get something really creative for you...
