About Kajal Naina Sherchan Rai : Kajal Naina creates one-of-a-kind collections and bespoke items of jewellery for clients around the world. After working as a dentist for ten years, Kajal went on to obtain professional degrees in jewellery design and fashion jewellery, became a graduate pearl specialist, and received numerous certifications in metalsmithing, metal clay, and jewellery making. A philanthropist, author and expert on gemstones and jewellery, Kajal holds free educational workshops that educate people on important matters related to jewellery in her hometown of Nepal when she is there. Having three daughters, Kajal deeply values education for young children and donates to the “Shubhadra Madan Foundation”, a children's education and empowerment initiative in Nepal." She was born and raised in Nepal, and has since spent time living in India, Singapore, Japan and now lives in Hong Kong with her husband and 2 daughters.
STATEMENT OF ART:
To me design and art in an extension of the artist. It comes from the soul, it's the expression of the experiences he is feeling and living- both internal and external. I feel that any great society has to have a place for art and design as many times art is the reflection of the times we are living in and helps to understand life better. Without art life would be lifeless.

My designs are not just a fancy shape or form. It is an expression of myself, my ideals and my beliefs. For me, designing is not only making available big or small pieces of ornaments but something deeper, something that connecting to the wearer. I strive to feel their hopes and dreams and give them the pieces to fit their life stories. They would feel loved and special when wearing a Kajal Naina piece and in many special cases hopefully I can leave them with a piece that can be treasured for generations to come.
