Lokvani Talks To Cindy Jathar


So many things inspire me to create, but in order to be able to create at all, it has to come from a happy and clear mind. I also have an impulse to "fix" things. I'll see a jewelry piece and redesign it in my head...I will dream of designs and when I awake, I'll have the exact design clearly in my head. Colors are a huge inspiration for me. Traveling to India Inspires me. Helping others inspires me.
