Divine Intervention by Prophecies By Monica
Monica Kumar, the woman behind Prophecies by Monica is a cartomancer. Her intent is to try and help people in bringing about individualist healing and self-love through Tarot cards and Osho Zen card readings, numerology analysis and remedies, and angel guidance and healing therapy.

Custom Art by A White Tile
Vasudha Mehra founded A White Tile, an artistic venture which is a collection of hand-painted chinaware, an expression from within, and a place for her to write stories with colours and not words.
With a Masters degree in fine arts from JJ School of art, Vasudha ventured into this medium in 2014. She was intrigued and overwhelmed with the result. Everything she would make would look so pretty! Sometimes, it was the magic in the style of the chinaware, and sometimes it was the colors and composition that would make the simplest piece look extraordinary.
Hand-painted Porcelain is a niche and exclusive art, and thus lavish. The pieces range from the big fours to six-figure prices. Every piece of art has its own grace and elegance. Since this is painted on a fragile base, the brand has a select target audience.
Her paintings can be seen on Instagram and Facebook. Follow the brand on social media to experience the therapeutic collection and commission a piece.
