story of SHRUSSHTI Sharma
It is often said that you need to be in the other person’s shoes to feel his true emotions. This is exactly what happened to me too!
Being passionate about jewelry since childhood, it was natural for me to pursue jewelry designing as my career. After finishing my B.Com, I studied to become a certified jewelry designer.
I began working as an assistant to Mr. Bhattacharya, the product manager with Gold Star Jewels. This was where I learnt the practical nuance of the field and that learning has since remained with me.
I began training the younger lot of designers and teaching them what I had learnt. I even researched and curated a syllabus that not only gave the theoretical perspective to the students but also involved practical learning as well about the industry.
With two successful ventures under my belt, I realized that while most of my students were doing wonderful in their respective careers and organizations, none had their own brands. I began working on this subject
I firmly believe that knowledge grows when it is shared. Hence I feel that it is important for me to share my knowledge with the next generation of designers. On the personal front, I am a wife and mother of two.
Thus even after 17 long years in the industry, I still feel that the journey has just begun and there are miles to go for me before I sleep.
