Crafts Council of Karnataka Secretary Bharathi Govindraj after going through the designs displayed at the exhibition said that the efforts of the institute in teaching fashion jewellery designing and making would provide students an opportunity for self-employment and good earning in future. The innovative ideas and craftsmanship of the students in making the low cost jewellery is praiseworthy, she added.
