statement is an understatement

I could look at photos of India all the live long day. The colors do something to me deep down in my being. The gold jewelry makes me weak in the knees. If only I had a cute nose. You know I'd be piercing that thing so I could wear an Indian nath. Sometimes I wear a bindi just for fun.


Strange? Maybe, but what do I care? If I'm going to be a housewife I might as well be an eccentric housewife.



Indian Inspiration

Of course India inspires me to create. I made this pendant.


India Necklace

Then I started on the rest of the necklace. It kept getting brighter and bigger and more intricate and just, well, more Indian.

I'm calling it a "statement" necklace, but really it's more than that.

It's electric.


India Pendant


It's $175. I know expensive, but well, a little piece of a Eastern nation doesn't come cheap. If you want it, leave a comment.

When my younger sister went to India she brought be back a hand made/embroidered bedspread and shams. They don't have standard sizes, so it is huge, the will fit a king size bed and then some huge, but I love it. Everything they brought back was amazing and their pictures while they were there were even better. Another friend brought me back a small ivory box that is made from the same ivory as the Taj Mahal hall. I treasure it. The people there are even more beautiful than the goods they create. It's just a dark place, but the people are so wonderful.

my beloved is from Tamil Nadu - just saying those words is magical to me - I have yet to go to India and meet the family, but my day will come and yours too. Ancient culture based on filial piety and the collective good . . . we're not all that different from one another, btw, I crave that necklace

How do you make those small flowers? Your eyes must be like fine tuned microscopes to get them that small.....I so covet your necklace.

Beautiful post! I love the colors and vibrancy in the pictures of India also.

Why not be an eccentric housewife... I love it! I'm getting there slowly as my teens get horrified with my little moves beyond conformity.

Beautiful work of art!! Some people say books can take you where ever you'd like to go but this reminds me that inspiration and dreams don't just come from books but they can come from beautiful jewelry as well. ;)
