Hi there… Welcome to The Craft House!!
Yes… I’m trying new start line 😛
So, after so much glue and glitter in my last project, I wanted to do something that would make my hands less grubby. Hahaha.. Less grubby for a crafter is a distant dream 😴
Nevertheless, I was able to think of a project that includes no gums and glues; but there were shreds…lots and lots of 🙄
Dangling Silk and black metal… (jewellery with silk thread danglers – in case the title didn’t give it away)
Have a look at these and stay tuned for more!!
So weddings are on and I just happen to love this part of year; actually all those parts that host weddings. In fact, I’m a big fan of weddings altogether. I’m sure you know this very well, by now 😀
I just love them. The color, the gleam and glitter they bring along; the fun and frolics, food, friends and family…okay too many Fs 😉
And otherwise being a bit lazy, I also look forward to these occasions, as I get all jazzed up (especially with my kid, these are the only times when I really get to jazz up myself #busymom). Presently, I’m looking forward to one such ceremony in my family in November this year; and look, my preparations have already begun 😀
Meenakari Magic I call it!!
Its a piece of statement jewelry showcasing the very antique in its origins and yet very relevant in modern times, Meenakari handwork. Glass beads embellished with gold, maroon and green enamels go so well with the oxidized gold finish pendant and jhumka 😀 Not to forget, the peacock stud heads bring that touch of royalty, don’t they?
Together they make a grand piece and have a grandeur appearance!
Believe you me when I say, it takes two to raise a baby; but it takes 2^n to raise an adorable devil like mine 3:)
She is gem of a daughter and is also very good at keeping me engaged and engrossed in her activities all day long, leaving me with very little time and energy to do anything else.
So with whatever time I get, here is a showcase of my recent work..
Its amazing how grey monsoon clouds bring all the color and happiness on our mother earth and in our hearts.
I am here with my latest creation under the flag of ‘Asasa…you’re the treasure’ – German Silver oxidized Jhumka set.
When I sat down to work on these, it was raining outside and I thought “why not incorporate the essence of monsoon in my piece?” And here I am with this one.
Taking inspiration from the grey monsoon clouds, the base and background for this set of jhumka is of oxidized German silver with a combination of turquoise wooden and seed beads; and its lovely to see how it has turned out.
Yes Yes….I have skipped a month…yet again; but this time did not go in squander 😀
I wanted to make something quirky, fun and vibrant. And yes, it had to be a jewelry. But what? To quench the quirk thirst, I started looking for unusual materials. Though yarn is not that unusual, and is frequently used in jewelries too; well, i tried my hands here; and look…what did I make……
In my last post, I introduced Asasa, the jewelry section of my work. Since then I have been doing nothing but jewelries. Earrings, bracelets, anklets (of which I’ll be sharing images soon); but here this one is the most loved creation of mine (by me :P)
A classic combination of gold and cream in the most ethnic yet contemporary style. Have a look!!
