About The Artwork

This is made in 2021 and named Shankh which means shell in Sanskrit! I have seen a lot of shells while growing up since I lived close to the sea. I use to collect shells on our walks by the beach and at the end, I give them back to the ocean. I have seen shells holding on to the kelp and reach the shore with water in it. This is purely made from my childhood memories. This will make an amazing gift for 1st Anniversary gift, sea lovers gift, Mariners gift, and sailors gift! Its size 11-inch x 14 Inch. It will be framed in customers' choice color. Ready to ship!! For more updates on my newest collection, visit my website :) www.papersweetly.com

Nikitha Yelchuru is a San Jose-based artist who crafts jewelry and sculptural objects through a unique technique called quilling—rolling, shaping, and gluing strips of paper into decorative designs. Each of her works begins as an observational sketch, inspired by her everyday life and the natural world. Using these sketches as a jumping-off point, she quills paper objects by making intuitive associations and finding formal parallels. Her delicate hand-made pieces bear witness to her commitment to excellent craftsmanship. Yelchuru fell in love with the ancient art of quilling in 2012. She began by designing jewelry solely for herself. However, her friends and family were quick to notice her talent, and she started receiving commissions for custom-made pieces. When she realized the magnitude of the demand for her work, she decided to quill earrings, necklaces, wall-art, and sculptural objects full time. Since 2016, the artist has crafted custom-made pieces on commissions under the name Paper Sweetly. Yelchuru’s background in engineering, coupled with her artistic sensibility, gives her a keen eye for the geometer of nature. She notices the underlining structure of everything from the chambered nautilus shell to the articulated shape of a hummingbird's outstretched wings. She uses the character, shape, and color she sees to articulate the poetic meaning in everyday life and translate positive energy into spontaneously constructed forms. She continually hones her skills and creates new designs inspired by the world around her.
