More about her
A graduate from Delhi University, Simran Kapur started designing jewellery out of a need to own absolutely unique accessories to go with her dresses. What started as a hobby has now turned into a full-time profession for Kapur. She is working under the label Quirk & Co. that specializes in custom-made necklaces and bracelets. For designing these pieces, Kapur uses a combination of vintage finds, semi-precious stones, postage stamps and random things found in some unmentionable places. When not designing jewellery, Kapur also works as a freelance stylist.
