The designs she chooses
Shaina Kochar (31) wanted to be a journalist or a TV anchor — she wasn’t sure. She did write and got published. But that was all about it. Her post-graduation in Mass Communication first took her to clear UGC exam and then to teaching in city colleges. Was it something she had wanted to be? “No,” her answer came, as honest as it could. 

Then came marriage, and a new partnership with her husband. They started an event management company. “I used my social circle for organizing various exhibitions and social events.” The response was good enough for her to experiment with all ideas. “My husband suggested I go for photo shoots with child models.” This changed everything for her. “The children are into theatre, taking part in short films and even ads,” she says.

“My latest enterprise is selling tribal jewellery, which I have designed myself.” Without any formal training, she found her own way. “I mix parts of oxidized stuff with hand-crafted jewellery, embellish it with stones to make fusion jewellery, which I market as Bohu Mutiyar,” says Shaina as she proudly displays her creations.
