One-Of-A-Kind Jewel-toned Decor Accents
‘Necessity is the Mother of lnvention’ ... So the saying goes and that’s what happened to me. After moving to the US from Goa, India, I didn’t yet have a regular 9 to 5 job and so I helped my husband by working at his tax office. This left me with a lot of time on my hands - and the necessity to keep them busy.
Then, on my first trip back home to India, I bought some broken bangles. After returning to the States I took a simple, unadorned vase and worked out a surface design using the broken bangle pieces. And after I completed that first vase, I was hooked.
My Materials: The History of Bangles
Bangles have been an integral part of the culture of India since ancient times. To an Indian woman, bangles are not just an accessory or an ornament; they are a part of her identity and essence, they enhance her feminine grace.
A bangle is a rigid bracelet and can be made of glass, metal, lac, wood or plastic. Bangles are significant during festivals like Teej and Karva Chauth, but even more so during weddings and the many rituals that go with them.
