OUR FOUNDER AND CHIEF DESIGNER
Priyanka Murthy is the founder and chief designer for Arya Esha. She has been designing jewelry for decades, even throughout her notable career in law and political science. While participating in human rights law missions in Africa, and evaluating complex political problems as a Fulbright Scholar in Europe, Priyanka learned that she is most effective when she lets her heart drive her and her mind direct her.
Priyanka received formal gemstone training from the Gemological Institute of America. She also holds a law degree and an undergraduate degree from Northwestern University and completed Masters Studies as a Fulbright Scholar from Copenhagen University, Denmark. Priyanka lives in Florida with her husband, who is a cardiologist, and their infant son, who is currently into eating beach sand for no apparent reason.
We are an all-female team of designers, craftswomen, marketers, techies, and operators. Our artisans come to work because they love their craft. Our office and studio team comes to work because they're passionate about our company. Our Attachés are building their micro Arya Esha business because they love our pieces and brand.
OUR ATTACHÉ PROGRAM
Arya Esha Attaché program is designed to empower individuals to pursue entrepreneurship on their own terms. Our model allows self-starting, motivated women (and men) to host popup shops where they style pieces from our jewelry collections. We provide each Arya Esha Attaché the guidance and tools to set up a successful business, and she decides how much time she wants to devote to her business.
