About the Artist: Swati Nigam
I started making beaded bracelets in 2003 with semi-precious beads. Made many of those and sold. My designs were very simple, but people seemed to like them. That encouraged me to learn more about jewelry making and I started off with wire. I have learned wire jewelry from Preston Reuthor, friends, online tutorials, jewelry forums, Connie Fox, and many other sources. I also started taking metalsmithing classes. It is graet when I can bring together stones, wire, sheet metals, beads and create something that please one's eyes and soul!
What inspires me in my work is spirituality, the Divine that is within us all, and that part of us women that is an eternal royalty.
