mirror mirror on the wall...

....lets see which is the prettiest of them all!

lotus leaf mirrors

These designs are made of mirror acrylic. Light... in weight and on pockets. The good part is  you don't need to drill holes for these. One can also stick them in places where drilling isn't an option.... bathroom tiles, bathroom doors, cupboards, etc, besides the usual places.

mughal motif (1) mirrors

The mughal motif ones, come in a set of six. So there is a choice of making your own patterns on the wall. The blue background for the designs is my cupboard.

mughal motif (2) mirrors

The above design is one of my favourite. Not only the formations happen great...the negative also makes a pattern!

The leaves below come in a set of 5 or 7.

Again, my partner for the pieces in this post is Vrushali. Also, we thought of something new..... we call them the 'couple coasters'. As the name says, they are coasters for two people to enjoy their drinks together! There are the usual colors we have used and there are these exciting transparent florescents.... all are below.

The florescent couple coasters were difficult to click. One, their shadow blurs the edges and two, they look good in dark (in the picture i.e). These were made for the last exhibition. And now are in stores. Cant find a proper packaging for these though! Any ideas.....?

A lot more, in mirrors, besides the above has happened since then. Will post more pictures soon. Waise I got back sooper quick this time, haan?!

Happy Pongal! Happy Lohri! Happy Uttraan!

New beginings....

A very happy and love filled new year to all!

Had a crazy time at the new years party. The party began on 30th night and the madness went on till lunch hours of 1st. The bone chilling cold... terrace party... bonfire... barbecue... dancing... and my insane friends... all made it a very very memorable time!
CP4 - sterling silver brooch

I love this brooch! Not only because of the fabulous color of chalcedony, also because of the french metal technique it is made with - repousse. (embossing and chasing the same piece of metal). It is locally done in India in the city of Jaipur. Oh! By the way I visited Jaipur for a few days just before the year end. It was as amazing as I remembered. In Jaipur this technique is called 'chitaai-kaam' or 'chitrai-kaam'. Love the 3D feel it adds to the design. Below is a picture of an actual (not controlled) instinctively worked on repousse piece.
