Jewellery is an important fashion accessory which enhances the overall look of a person. While there are many types of jewellery, wire wrapping is one of the oldest techniques of making handmade jewellery. This art form is made out of wires and similar products which are shaped and designed to make a beautiful piece. The components of wire are connected to each other using mechanical technique where no soldering or heating of wire is carried out. To give our Circle Members the experience to learn and enlighten themselves about this traditional art form, Rajasthan Studio curated a special Wire Work Jewellery Workshop and invited Ritvi Mishra.
Ritvi is from Pune, and is a third-year electronics and telecommunications student known for being a maker aficionado. Is passionate about building communities and can’t imagine life without art.
