Jahnavi G Moovala –
I was one amongst thousands of engineers who graduated from one of the most prestigious colleges in Bangalore. All round, people seemed elated. Like most people, I also joined the software industry. But this time, something didn’t feel right. Gradually my interest in an everyday 9 to 5 desk job started declining. My friends and family always told me that I had a creative streak. But I neither had a clue nor means to nurture this passion. This was when I stumbled upon a world of innovation, creativity and passion in the name of JD Institute of Fashion Technology. I did my International Diploma in fine jewellery. My career took a turn for the best. Be it learning about designing, creating new designs that were one of a kind in the whole world and most of all doing what I always wanted to do in the right way, the teachers of JD held hands and supported us all along our journey. My experience here not only built the strong foundation that I needed in the art of jewellery making, but opened new doors and opportunities in meeting and networking with highly experienced Jewellery Designers. The continuous encouragement that helped me push my limits has today manifested itself as the launch of my own brand “NiJa – The Candid Jewellery”.
