Fashion Jewellery Instructor & JDMIS Alumnus
A former school principal, Sujata is an experienced teacher and fashion jewellery artist specializing in thread and wire jewellery fabrication techniques. Sujata has a bachelor of arts degree and a diploma in fashion jewellery design. She has traveled the world integrating elements of the cultures she experiences into her jewellery creations. She loves to convey to her students not only the importance of professional techniques and quality, but also a unique style and enthusiasm for the fashion world.
Starting her own Jewellery Company
Her passion for Jewellery making and design motivated Sujata to start her own jewellery brand, Mila, in 2016. When it came to creating her brand name, she wanted to make it very unique. Thus, she derived the brand name 'Mila' from her mother's name. What could be more special! Since then, she has produced over 2000 jewellery pieces in her collection. Her ready-to-wear lines of jewellery have been on sale at over 70 exhibitions and venues such as Takashimaya, Isetan, Fullerton, Sheraton Hotels as well as Creative Jewellery Studio’s online store.
Her style is mainly focusing on unique and one-of-a-kind designs using wire sculpting, weaving, and various professional stringing techniques. For many of her necklaces and bracelets in different collections, she had incorporated natural minerals such as Amethyst, Quartz, Jasper and organic materials such as Pearls and Amber. Sujata's inspiration sources are from her travels around the world. Her jewellery creations are proof of her creativity by integrating elements of the cultures she experiences.
