I love the colors of natural corals. The vast variety of corals available is mind boggling . Be it the vibrant orange of the natural coral or the subtle pinkish hue of the creamish coral , I just love them ! Stashed away in my trinket box , I found a couple of necklaces I had strung a couple of years ago . . Keeping it rustic and simple on purpose , I had created these to go with my sarees and I love wearing them .
Real coral tube beads are used with black handcrafted Indian beads and the pendants are from Kerala.
In many regions of India , married women consider it auspicious to wear coral . It is teamed up with the traditional black beads and gold for the Mangalsutra ( or the sacred thread , if translated )
Taking the traditional and symbolic pendant from the Southern region of India , I have strung this Mangalsutra
This one has been made with glass beads in coral and black with a gold pendant from Coorg.
What do you think of these necklaces? Waiting to hear your comments ,
