My transformation

Dear friends,

I am here today to post on how i make my paper jewellery. The idea of becoming a jewellery designer without any formal course may seems to be daunting. But in my case it is not like that. You all need is a bit of talent, creativity and dedication. You can become a jewellery designer.

It was during 2005, I ventured into the jewellery  designing field for Tanishq & Goldplus. Since an amateur designer was scared to compete with other qualified jewellery designers. But the confidence in me helped me to do more than 300 designs for the both the brand which was well appreciated by our design head and customers.

But there was many limitation in designing and we have to think the possibility of manufacturing while designing. I have decided to give up this career  to take care of little son. This was the time i accidentally got into quilling on seeing by Reshmi's quilling blog. But there was no tutorial on how to quill. Only my designing skill helped to learn quilling on my own. Since 2006, i was in love with quilling and so far I have made nearly 500 designs in paper earring. I don't have any idea about blog those day.

I named my artwork under Adhiraacreations / Adhiraa Creations / Adhira creations on 4th May 2012 and planned to opened a blog. Adhiraacreations blog came to live on 28th May 2012. I am going to celebrate my 2nd blog anniversary soon this month. Thank you friends for your support.

Hence friends, try anything with hard work and dedication, you will achieve it. Hope I have bored you with my story. I design my jewellery first and then try it out. Here is a sample.
