How Did It All Start?
It all started when I bought a necklace at a stall in Serpentine Green, Peterborough and then commented that it was so difficult to get something unique and “different” at a reasonable price. My husband said, “Why don’t you make your own?”
Famous Last Words eh Mr. A? 😉
At that time (2007) I did not even know how to hold pliers properly! He bought a set of jewellery making tools, a couple of wire work video courses from USA and some beads for my birthday and I was hooked! I fell in love with wire and enjoyed what I could create with it.
And then we started exploring Lapidary so we could cut and polish our own stones. From then on it’s been a self taught journey which I am enjoying immensely.
Jewellery by Shalini was officially launched on 1st November 2008.
