It has been an incredible journey, designing and manufacturing jewelry for over 25 years. I am a passionate and trained professional jewelry designer from GII,( Gemmological Institute of India) with over 2+ decades of industry knowledge and experience. I have had privilege to design fine and couture jewelry for various companies and have participated in many International Jewelry shows. I finally take pride in launching my own brand Neelam Lara Designs. My love for precious metals and gemstones, my passion for designing, combined with my knowledge for manufacturing, has enabled me to create timeless, unique and innovative jewelry over the years. Working with customer preloved jewelry or Heirloom pieces and giving them a new life has been a significant part of my design journey. My strength lies in designing multiple collections, each collection having its unique characteristics and wearability. Creating multifunctional jewelry with removable, changeable and modular aspects are prominent feature of my design. My expertise lie in creating precise digital designs that are well finished in colour and resemble a photograph. My strength lies not only in manufacturing fine jewelry, but also in purchase of precious materials, sale of finished jewelry and designing the creatives for marketing. I have enjoyed working for both the retail and wholesale sectors of Jewelry. Recently I have had the opportunity to teach and have been an instructor at the Jewelry Design &Management International school Singapore. Even though I have been active in the industry for years, I have the desire to add new skills and refresh my knowledge through various Jewelry programmes. Over the past 15 years in Singapore, I have enrolled in many programmes, such as CAD, Metal clay Metalsmithing, Pearls at JDMIS, Singapore always with the desire to learn more and keep abreast with the current Jewelry trends and standards. I am creative, ambitious and very passionate about my work. This beautiful Garden city Singapore has been home for past 15 years, prior to which I was in Kolkata and Mumbai in India.
