I am a Master in Interdisciplinary Design from the Virginia Commonwealth University, 2014 before which I graduated with Distinction from Pakistan Institute of Fashion and Design in Jewelry Design and Gemological Sciences. 

During the course of my 5 years teaching, I taught a wide variety of modules, which have honed my understanding of design teaching, specifically Jewelry Design. I am keen on keeping myself up breast with latest developments in the design field and have a penchant for detail, as my jewelry would testify to.

I also have my own brand running for 6 years:
