Dreamcatchers, feathery-earrings, tribal jewelry is fascinating. And, honestly, if you think you can easily make it all at home, you’re WRONG.
Because, with the same sense of conviction, we headed off to Pranshuta’s place. However, when we reached there, things were different.
Imagine a dense forest, with the thumping wet sound of percussions playing somewhere at a distance, now imagine a few Gorillas find some complex tools, a little more complex than what the Early Man had discovered…
What do they do?
Needless to say, Mansi, Shreeya, and I had the same expression when we got into the details. we buckled up, scratched our backs like Gorillas and it all began.
“Once you learn how to do it, it’s not difficult at all. If you know how to use a pair of pliers, it will be even easier.”
She then went on to lock the ring & the tassel on the earring.
And then, I called it!
Mansi said, “Can we also make those feather bookmarks?”
With most of my concentration on the biscuits sitting on a plate not far from me, I continued to babble to Mansi, “Don’t be so greedy.”
“Are you sure you’re talking to me?” Mansi said.
“How long have you been doing this, Pranshuta? You’re so good at it!” Shreeya curiously asked.
We’d met Pranshuta at the Rajasthan Heritage Week, and she’s flying to Pune with her husband, probably now, as I’m typing this, for another exhibition.
We absolutely loved the bookmarks and, really, we were lucky! Pranshuta had already wrapped some bookmarks as gifts for us.
Now, there’s a new added FEATHER to our caps (literally). Oh yeah, we can make our own jewelry now!
Before we took off with the gifts, Pranshuta also told us that it wasn’t just her who was making all the jewelry. See the tassels?
All done by her grandmom & mom. Well, clearly now, we can tell where Pranshuta’s love for jewelry and creativity comes from!
Dreamcatchers, feathery-earrings, tribal jewelry is fascinating. And, honestly, if you think you can easily make it all at home, you’re probably right. *wink*
