Another Treasure from the Sea - Creations in coral

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  .

  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

Real coral tube beads are used with black handcrafted Indian  beads and the pendants are from Kerala.
