Due to their shared love, she decided to try her hand at making them, not as a full time job just yet, but if she has her way, that's where she's heading.
Here's what Tarandip has to say about where she finds her inspiration:
My inspirations mainly come from my mom. I'm Punjabi (Sikh), so in my designs I try to incorporate some Indian feel, though at time I still make modern pieces. Basically my ideas come from everyone— the people, the things i see on the road, etc. Once I get an idea, I make note of it and proceed to find the materials I need. In Singapore, it is pretty hard to find unique items
as there are limited bead stores here, so I spend like hours in my favorite bead store just looking for the perfect beads/charms that fit my idea.
Her enthusiastic response to my email was totally infectious so I hope you enjoy the look at her work today. You can see the rest of her amazingly inexpensive earrings and a few necklaces in her shop.
