Sunburst in Spring.

The arrival of spring brings a new zest in the air. The mother earth gears up to don her very best , throwing the clouds of dark and dismal winter away.
    In India according to the hindu calender it also marks the arrival of Vasant Panchami ,  vasant meaning spring  and panchami meaning fifth day of spring. On this day ,  offerings of  fresh mango flowers are offered to the Gods  , seeking  blessings for  bounty of crops especially mangoes .

  The color yellow also plays an important role in this festival. People usually wear yellow garments on this day ,and yellow sweets are offered to God. The Goddess of Knowledge - Saraswati , is specially worshipped on this day and many astrologers consider Vasant Panchami as auspicious to start all good work.

 This bracelet that I have named Sunburst in Spring has been created  . inspired by the vibrant colours of ripe mangoes , yellow and orange ,on a netted base .   my very first attempt at learning a new technique
