Varanasi Jeweler

We arrived in Varsnasi around 1:00 in the afternoon after a 14 hour night train from Agra, dropped off our heavy bags at the Hotel Divya in the Assi Ghat area of Varanasi and had some lunch (we were starving after the long train ride).

Then we headed to Suneeta Jewellers to meet with the famous sixth generation jeweler Agam Narayan Singh. The meeting went great. Agam is a joy to work with and an incredible jeweler who prides him self on creating quality jewelry.

The samples of my custom ordered framework components as well as bead caps for the saree and fabric wrapped beads will be done in a few days. We will then go over the components and place the order. I will pass back through Varanasi in a few weeks and pick the finished work. I am very excited to be collaborating with Agam and to unite two worlds through the art of jewelry.
