Kichu Dandiya On Her Artistic Pursuit

Text by Zaral Shah

She chose to work with affordable materials for her jewellery label, leading to experimental designs

Driven to make products that speak for themselves and are motivated by travels, her eponymously named brand Kichu was born in and inspired by Jaipur. After studying jewellery design at Central Saint Martins, London, Kichu Dandiya chose to work with affordable materials — for the opportunity they provide for experimentation.

First creation
Professionally, it was the Stag Antler Necklace, which gave birth to the idea of Kichu.

On artistic pursuit
The quest is more for a sense of personal satisfaction. Challenges are only then endured.
