Yearning for India

When I think of India I can see bright colors popping up everywhere, I can feel the soft fabric of saris, I can smell and taste the delicious Indian food. And I yearn. I long. I want to go back.
Instead I browse through my pictures of India and try to capture a bit of India in my jewelry.


These handmade copper dangles from Kristi Bowman have just the right colors, shape and texture for that purpose. Together with lampwork glass beads in matching teal from Lampwork by Amy, vintage Lucite beads and enameled bead caps, Swarovski crystal and handmade ear wires from Faerystones, and voila, a bit of Bollywood bling. I can pretend I’m back.

Thanks for looking!
Wishing you a wonderful day,

    1. What a lovely offer Divya, thank you :-) I wish I could, I would come in a heartbeat. My husband and I have traveled and lived in India for 5 months. We so loved the time we spent there.

  5. I understand that longing all too well :) Fortunately we have active imaginations (and photos) that can take us back for a moment here and there. Such a beautiful interpretation in these earrings. Just lovely!! xo -- Julie
