Make Clay while the Sun shines
Make Clay while the Sun shines
Label: Gehena ‘Your aspiration’
Products: Handmade Accessories.
Price Range: INR 400 for small studs to over INR 2000 for full sets.
Speciality: How fascinated were we as kids, or even adults, when we watched the potter take a dollop of clay and mould it into enchanting objects using something as simple as a spinning disc, topping it up with something as mediated as his craftsmanship. We went through the same train of emotions when we spotted ‘Gehena’, a label that crafts jewellery employing three mediums: Semi-precious beads, Japanese Kumihimo braided jewellery and Polymer clay; needless to say the last one is our most favourite.
The fact that they will spoil you for choices is another speciality. They don’t just offer you three mediums to choose from but also an array of options based on the clients style, budget etc. Most clients interact via email or Whatsapp and after a couple of trials and errors, the final design is taken care of, and manufactured.

How To Style:
We loved the Spiral Stud Jhumkis priced at INR 1600 for their vibrant hues and showing you three ways to style it: Racy Retro, Pastel Palette or Suave Bohemian.

The Face Behind The Label:
Supriya Vijay has always been a jewellery enthusiast. At one point of time, she had a huge collection of jewellery herself. After quitting her job with a professional tax firm she wanted to do something to evade tax paying. Well, just kidding, she wanted to do something which would keep her occupied. Jewellery making which started as a hobby soon became a full-time venture for her. That’s how Gehena started.
