After completing school from Maharaja Sawai Man Singh Vidyalaya, Jaipur in 2004, Shikha joined Miranda House, University of Delhi. She read History in college. At Miranda House, Shikha organized a wide spectrum of activities – Inter-College festival (Tarikh), South-Asian Students Seminar Debate (Manzar). She was also President of the History Society and the Adventure Club. After graduating in 2008, she undertook a 6-month course in photography from Triveni Kala Sangam in Delhi.
Though she still loves photography, she has realized that photography is not something she wishes to pursue professionally. After much deliberation, Shikha decided to foray into silver gift items. After several months of research, she launched her own speciality line (in Jaipur) called Code Silver on September 1, 2010.
Code Silver, the very name holds itself two elements- the modernity of today and the authenticity of silver. Established in 2010, Code Silver is the unique blend of contemporary style, and handcrafted heritage, with detailing or baariki that is reflected in every piece, created by hand.
Exquisite silver and silver plated work, transcending form. Who said Silver was reduced to jewelry and dining ware?
Well beyond the usual expectations of silver- the designs and products redefine the use of silver and its character. Silver is young, it is experimentative!
