VISION 2006 a jewellery design competition organised by the Indian Institute of Gems & Jewellery (IIGJ) targeted towards the young designers aiming to discover and encourage fresh design talent in India. The competition was open to all the students and professionals who have been trained in various jewellery institutes across India. The theme of this year's competition was "jewellery for the youth" and the designs were invited for three different categories i.e. Everyday wear, Party wear and Bridal wear.
We are very proud to announce that two of the winning designs in everyday wear category are from JDTI students. First place in this category is coveted by Ms. Oindrilla Roychoudhary currently doing two year diploma programme from JDTI, while Ms. Suvidha Gupta an ex-student was one of finalist in the same category



Oindrilla Roychoudhary's winning design titled "Stilettos" is a belt buckle on a white leather belt, with specially cut turquoise stones combined with pave setting. Since the theme of the competition was "jewellery for the youth", she decided to take stilettos as her inspiration, a current rage amongst the youth girls. According to her "It is very important to understand the psyche of the consumer to make a successfull design. She is a firm believer of the motto "It is not how much you do but how much love you put in doing".

Shakti, an armlet cum pendant is designed by Ms. Suvidha Gupta an ex-student of JDTI. The armlet derives it's inspiration from the Tibetan Thangka Painting of god Manjushree - God of Divine Wisdom. In her piece she has used chip inlay, a very interesting technique carried out with chipped or crushed semiprecious stones, like Lapis lazuli, Coral, Onyx etc.


JDTI congratulates both of them on their remarkable achievement and wishes them a very bright future ahead.
