Alok's story

Alok is an artisan from India who specializes in sterling silver and gemstone jewelry. He would like to invest in a bulk purchase of silver and gemstones.

Alok has been selling through NOVICA since 2002. This is his story:
'I'm inspired by nature, hence you will find that most of my designs feature natural motifs. The highlight of my journey into handicrafts came in 1995, when the Sultan of Brunei placed an order for my designs'

"I am so thankful and full of gratitude for the love and support I have received from each of you."
