About 'Coyote'.


CN 82 - butterfly earrings




Namashkaar!

My name is Dipika. I design and dance. And just about manage to do other things too!

My affair with design began in 2003, when I joined National Institute of Design (NID) for a PG in Lifestyle Accessories Design. After finishing it, in 2005, I started creating. I lovingly called my label 'Pink Dot'. It all started with gold and diamonds jewellery. Silver followed and then silver accessories too happened. I moved cities in 2007 and felt the need for change... that is when 'Coyote' came into being. Towards 2010 end, I started exploring other materials like acrylic, stainless steel, felt, etc.

'Coyote' is species of wild wolves. Also slang for a sexy women. I loved the name because it has character and a certain kind of wildness attached to it. Coyote is all about a fabulous art called jewellery.

All the silver designs that you see on this blog are hand crafted from 92.5 sterling silver. Assorted gemstones, finishes and textures & unusual forms and details are employed to make these designs interesting. My cliched design quote is 'form follows fervour'. It's all about passion!

Besides adding my work to this blog, I occasionally will be adding a shots of my insanity too. You shall have to endure it all.

Hope you enjoy seeing/ sporting my designs as much as I love making them..
