• Jayashree Ravi founder of Paper Mantras




    About Jayashree Ravi and Paper Mantras:
    Jayashree: Hi. I am Jayashree Ravi, the Founder and Artist of Paper Mantras. Paper Mantras was started in 2014 when I was back in India. Paper Mantras started as a hobby, now has become a part of my life. At Paper Mantras, I design handmade jewelry out of paper, beads, etc.; At Paper Mantras, I also design Photo frames, handmade gifts, name boards, wall decors, home decors, etc.; Basically, I try my hands at all possible forms of crafts.
    Paper Mantras started as a hobby which then turned into a small time venture, as I am into a fulltime job. Paper Mantras moto is to spread the love of handmade and crafting. I believe by teaching craft; you learn it twice. So regular online/offline workshops are conducted.
    You can see my creations on my Facebook page – http://www.facebook.com/papermantras

    1. NS: What is the greatest obstacle you have faced in achieving the success you desire? How do you overcome it?
    Jayashree: Time Management seemed to be a great obstacle initially. But now I’ve mastered managing time. Being in a fulltime job and managing a venture so close to art is an art by itself. You just have to prioritize things in the right order.


    2. NS: Tell us the process of placing orders with Paper Mantras.
    Jayashree: Currently, I am based in Singapore. If anyone wishes to place an order of existing designs, they can go through my page and get in touch with me through my page. In case, if they have a design in their mind, Paper Mantras will try its best to replicate it.

    3. NS: What are your future plans for Paper Mantras?
    Jayashree: I believe learning never ends. So, I am always thirsty for learning new crafts. As I said earlier, I am a strong believer of “To teach the art, is to learn the art twice”. Establishing my brand Paper Mantras to a larger audience in my current location Singapore is my prime focus now.

    Jayashree’s favorite:

    Color: Black
    Book: Princess Sulthana by Jean Sasson.
