The hand that creates...

The hand that creates...

Preethy Vijay, the mother of a four-year-old, decided to start a home venture out of sheer boredom. Little did she know that her home venture, ‘Pretty Creations’, would one day become her passion. ‘Pretty Creations’ was started in 2013 and is a place where one can find exquisite and unique handmade crafts and paintings with a fun twist and a dash of creativity.    

 She hand paints on products like mugs, and also makes birthday candles, photo frames, magnets, keychains, gift tags, accessories and much more, as per the theme of the party. Crafts like miniature dolls, bikes and name boards can also be found as part of her designs. She also makes quilled jewellery and self-designs and paints them. Lately, she is also trying her hand at dress design to create something of her own. She constantly posts her designs on Facebook and receives feedback. “I feel very happy when my customers like my work. Their feedback really matters to me and motivates me to do better,” says Preethy. 

Her inspiration stems from her surroundings. “One can learn a lot from the little things that we see around us,” she says. 

Her products are colourful and she makes each of them using air-dry clay. For example, if it’s a miniature bike, she takes pictures of them and designs the creations accordingly.

Balancing time between her venture and her four-year-old son is a hard task. “I usually work on my craft when my son is sleeping or away at school. But I also feel that if you are passionate about something, no matter what, you will make time for it,” she adds.

With the growing need for customised items  and unique birthday party themes, ‘Pretty Creations’ offers customisation of all products. “It sometimes brings out the best in me. When I take the customised order I’m a little skeptical at the beginning, but slowly I draft out a graph and work towards it.”
