“Rangoli” – the other word for Kolam, is the name I have chosen for this necklace . Since it is made to symbolize festivities , I have chosen a multicolor palette . Bold , bright colors to bring forth a spirit of joy , happiness and prosperity associated with this art form . The focal pendant, with red , blue , yellow glass beads , in my mind depict the perfectly symmetrical pattern of a geometric rangoli with the circle as the basic form .
The freeform necklace , in copper wire , emulates the flowing curves and lines found in the free-hand rangolis . I have added few splashes of color to break the monotony of the plain lines . Don’t miss out the two tiny rangolis in a square and diamond form which add a glitzy look to the necklace !
