I own  my own jewelry brand "Swarg Collection".Its a brand of imitation jewelry. All our pieces are handcrafted. we deal in made to order and customized jewelry pieces. We have a huge range right from casual to bridal jewelry.



2. How did you get your idea or concept ? ...

I cannot forget the day which changed my mom’s life. I was working as a Customer relationship manager in a 10 to 6 job. My mom was also working 10 to 6, for a jewelry designer. Somehow, my mom managed to get a client through some contact. She had received an order worth 5000. She was very much happy that she had finally earned it and was going for her own order. However,  soon that person cancelled the order and my mom broke to bits. She was crying bitterly, it was her dream that crashed, she cried whole night. I couldn’t see tears in her eyes, very next day I got an idea to post her hand made jewelry on Facebook. From then on it was no looking back for us. We build a huge network of customers and resellers. Today we independently run our business and have build a niche for us in the market.

3.What do the day-to-day responsibilities of the role look like ? ...

I play multiple roles through the day. Be it a wife, daughter in law, daughter, sister and a business women. My husband recently decided to get a full time house-help and this now helps me give more time and concentrate more on my work.

4. What are some of the mistakes you wish you could have avoided ? ...

As being human i have  also made many Mistakes 

My biggest mistake, was to trust people blindly and not be upfront in money matters. But people teach you, although at a cost. I would recommend people to be very clear and be blunt. Please ask for payment in advance and upfront.

5. Are you happy and what would you change ? ...

Yes I am happy.

I am happy because with my decision of starting my own business. My mom is working from home she doesn't need to go out to work anymore. There was a time when she used to work under someone, now there is a time when two staff work under her. Still, if I get a chance to change something, I would like to change the mentality of people who think that woman can’t do anything!

My mom and me we started, build and continue to thrive a successful business.
