At Indian weddings , there is always , without doubt , an ocean of ideas and inspiration for a keen observer. And what more do I want! Always the one to enjoy wearing a piece of recreated and redesigned jewellery , I was full of ideas to make something new when I attended a South Indian wedding . Drooling over the Kanjeevaram sarees , the traditional jewellery , I could`nt wait to get back home and make something.
|Mahalakshmi , the goddess of wealth.|
|the necklace that I dis-assembled|
Mahalakshmi hair ornament to match the peacock pieces . And my necklace was ready .
|Each peacock is designed slightly different from the other , beautiful artistry is`nt it ?|
( Temple Jewellery , a traditional style of South Indian jewellery , is handcrafted in the repousse technique of jewellery making. For an in depth article on this jewellery making technique visit this link )http://www.ganoksin.com/borisat/nenam/repousse.htm
so what do you think of this necklace , Is the name Mahalakshmi ( The Goddess Of Wealth ) befitting this creation?
Looking forward to your comments
