At ‘AVNI’ ,I believe in creating unique handmade jewellery which is also easy on the pocket.
My journey began with creating handmade jewellery as a source of pocket money during college days. By the time I graduated I found my calling in the field of jewellery. Armed with a diploma in Gemology & Diamond Grading and a Jewellery Design degree I set up my own firm. I believe that learning never stops. I have seen my work get better with each passing day. I have worked and made handmade jewellery using a lot of mediums till now – Terracotta, Thai Clay, Brass and Copper Wires, Micro Mosaics, Stained Glass, Wire Crochet, Beaded Crochet. I have loved working with all the mediums so far, but it’s something about oxidized Copper which melts my heart *sigh*. Wire is such a versatile medium. The kind of things that you can create using wire amazes me. One can make basic wire basic jewellery or make a complex things like wire weaving, wire wrapping designs.
The handmade jewellery is created using different mediums such as Brass and Copper Wires, Terracotta, Thai Clay, Stained Glass etc. Each and every single piece is designed and handmade by us with love and care. Everything is made in-house and the designs are unique and eye catching.
There are quite a lot of designs made from hand woven brass and copper wire and have incorporated semi precious stones. Choose from a great variety of earrings, necklaces, bracelets, hand cuffs etc. Browse the shop section and check out our designs. You can also follow me on Facebook and Instagram for regular updates and designs.
Happy Shopping! 😊

A mosaic is a piece of art or image made from the assemblage of small pieces of coloured glass, stone, or other materials. It is often used in decorative art or as interior decoration. Most mosaics are made of small, flat, roughly square, pieces of stone or glass of different colours, known as tesserae. Some, especially floor mosaics, are made of small rounded pieces of stone, and called “pebble mosaics”.
What I do at AVNI
I use Stained Glass to create the artwork. The glass is hand cut according to the design , pasted using an adhesive and then grouted . The entire thing is handmade. That is the beauty of it. Once it is grouted your art piece can last for many years to come. It can be maintained by cleaning it with a wet cloth.
I also make handmade customized nameplates and coffee tables according to the customers requirements. The size of the nameplate is 16” x 8”. It can be shipped anywhere within India. We either suggest the design or if the customer has something particular in mind then we discuss the design and try to come up with the best possible design and idea. Customized glass mosaic nameplates are like a breath of fresh air from our age old typical nameplates. Since they are customized nameplates the design can be whatever you want. It gives a personal touch to the whole concept.
I have also worked on a couple of designs of coffee tables. The table is made of a cane base so it is light weight, easy to move around and sturdy. The tables can only be delivered in Pune as of now.
