Adorn yourself...


* I adore silver jewellery...period.
* I also like oxidized, hand-crafted jewellery, glass beads...
* I like stuff from Maya Bazaar, Sukra, Amrapali, (though I can't afford them!) Dariba Kalan- The wholesale silver jewellery market in Delhi & few shops in the by-lanes of commercial street.
* I have picked up some amazing stuff from craft exhibitions, roadside shops, gypsies on the move & also from the lambani's from Hampi ;-)
* My husband once mistook my bead necklace to be a bullocks neck piece.

I also make my own jewellery by stringing together stuff that I like~

oh I love the purple pendant !

All my jewellery got stolen last year from our flat in London the day we left!

I do like my minimal three items now though, although I miss the beautiful beautiful jewellery I bought in India. It was well before Astrid was born, but it was for her. Ah - one day we will have to return to buy some more...

charlotte-
I completely understand your feeling. Few year back our house was burgled and all my jewellery was stolen...from then on there is nothing of great value at home...only beads & junk jewellery.

I satisfy myself by just looking at such gorgeous pics.

I loved all of the pieces you've shown here Archana...they are gorgeous. I really love any kind of red beads with silver too. Funny, for years and years I have favoured silver or white gold, but recently have discovered a love of yellow gold. I guess I just love jewellery!!!
