Chennai: News Clipping

August 30, 2008

When i saw an article in todays paper, i thought that, finally crafts as hobbies are given recognition in India. Its about a software techie from Chennai who also makes beaded jewellery.
I tried hard over the internet to get the link to the article but in vain. Somehow the epaper also doesnt feature this article though it is present in the hard copy of the newspaper.

The article is in Deccan Chronicle, dated 30 Aug 2008. You can find it in the 23rd Page of the Chennai Edition’s “TV Entertainment Guide”

If anyone can get hold of the article on the net, please let me know, i want to place the link in my post.

Here is the Article, Thanks to “Gomse”.
Beads make a style statement” The Article is almost at the end of the page. The Newspaper even had her Picture and featured some of her work.

    Beads make a style statement

    If you are worried of ever fluctuating gold prices, why not make a style statement with beaded jewellery. Meet Anusha Krishnamurthy, a software techie, for whom designing beaded, kundan jewellery is more than a hobby. She designs a wide range of jewellery with beads, crystals, kundans etc.

    “I started designing jewellery as a hobby and it soon turned into a passion. I source beads, crystals and other material from various places for my jewellery,” she says. Anusha’s collection includes bangles, bracelets, necklaces, ear rings, anklets and other accessories that fit into all pockets.

    Anusha also takes orders for customised jewellery and her collections are now being sent to countries like Singapore and Mauritius. “Designing jewellery is a great stress buster. There is lot of personal and professional satisfaction involved in it. I want to teach this art and it is simple. What all we require is a little bit of creativity,” she says. Anusha can be contacted at 98409-24179.

    i think this is the article. nice blog. i love reading abt your crocheting and knitting adventures. i learnt crochet/knitting from some videos online and now am hooked. my room is full of yarn
    (only acrylic tho) n thread. too bad we dont get too many choices in yarn here in chennai.

    Hi this is Gitanjali. For truly handcrafted beauties, check out S.Ahalya’s lovely store Rasvihar which is located in Nungambakkam. She’s arguably the best. I have seen some jhumkies which are sooooo beautiful. The showroom is lovely, too.
