Name : Divya Silviston
Description of Item : Indian Chandelier full of colors and sound !
Name : Puja Sharma
I call my creation, SINDOORI (Hindi)- which translated in english is called Vermillion. Married Hindu women put Sindoor ( Vermillion) in parting of their hair as sign of marriage.There is No festive ritual complete witout the use of Sindoor. This colour is Favourite of Goddess Durga who stands for Shakti ( Power). As its festival season coming in for Indians , I was inspired to take the colour that symbolize it. So I have used Red & gold as these represent colours of our festival.
I have put multiple lines of crystal using metal links in a diamond shaped brass plate with holes punched in it. Another metal link is used to complete the top of earring using textured acrylic metal coated bead.Gold polished Hook is used for hanging.
It takes 25 minutes to make this pair of earrings. I have used Red glass crystal beads, Textured Acrylic metal coated beads, Punched brass metal plates, Gold polished Hook and links.
