Ambar has carved a niche for herself in the jewellery business with her creations exuberating a great deal of spirit and energy, oozing feminity and making a statement. After passing out of NIFT, she decided she would choose a different path. With her peers opting for garment design, she dove straight into jewellery design. When she started out, she was very young and the karigars (artisans) didn’t take her very seriously. She wanted to prove herself and did so by getting her hands dirty with them and working hard to create beautiful designs which won critical acclaim world wide. Her works featured in the bollywood feature film- 'Fashion'. Her works were also featured in the Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week and the Miami Fashion Week. She earned their respect which continues on to this day. Her modern, yet very Indian designs are a nod towards the elements present in her mothers jewellery. The traditional jewellery making techniques of jali and ari were on their way to being extinct. She hopes to revive these techniques through her jewellery which she creates in the traditional way. This lends a unique character to both her jewellery, and the person wearing them. According to her, conceptualizing the design is the most difficult, making the piece and putting it together is the easiest.
