6 asymmetrical necklaces for a sassy look

There is nothing more glamourous  than a woman who can embrace her true self with all her perfect imperfections… after all even her reflection is chiral.  A friend once told me that my smile looks different in the mirror than real; Startled, I looked back at my reflection, only to see a mirror image of myself. We never see ourselves the same way that the rest of the world does, only mirror images.
Symmetry does not have a place in nature; every being is truly unique. Moved by the thought, asymmetry has come to be my muse in jewellery making. I enjoy designing two types of asymmetrical necklaces:
  •  Beaded necklaces,  dressy, grandiose and edgy
  • Filigree long neck chains are airy, light, bohemian & casual with layered chains
Earrings divinely mismatched for the flower child souls out there. Keep a watch for the asymmetrical earrings upcoming collection by Kaajewel

Whim of a fiery red flames

Call yourself a nomad or an explorer… you would agree that transition is fun but often not that easy. My blog(..or blogs including this new one! :-)), which by the way is a major part of my life, is undergoing extensive changes:
…and of course I continue to blog about my design, inspirations and a dab of DIYs’
On my recent trip to the evergreen Bandipur national reserve in South India, we had a wonderful evening around the bonfire. Soaking in warmth while my camera clicked some casual shots. Soon I realized that one find their muse in the strangest of places . This is my whim to design another piece for the red collection.
Fiery hot inspiration

Blazing hot red flame sizzles with luminous yellow lining reminded the gold tone metal combined with a bright red or a pretty pink components.
Check my bead stock and found this untouched string of beads . Usually I steer clear of chunky beads for earrings but I had to make an exception. Embellished with a couple of swarowski crystals and finished with a pair of flattened metal stud instead of a regular french ear-wire.

Gothic inspired accessories

Deep colors,  edgy design, the Victorian touch. Inspired by the timeless gothic culture, these hand-crafted pieces make a unique fashion statement. Classy Goth! I perceive fashion to be a personal choice, something in my zone of comfort.

Black wire wrapping 

My latest attempt to include the striking black wire with deep red and pink beads turned out interesting.  I started out sketching these shapes and tried to add beads for a splash of color. I used a wire with higher gauge which makes a bold statement.

The template for sharing this piece of earring is made with polyvore. When I started blogging, it was mostly just about the handmade jewelry but as you can see I like variety and sharing the events in my life as it happens. 

Here’s another one… a striking red earring with swirl wire work and a matching black beaded bracelet.

Silver black earrings

This orange crystal bead with tarnished silver loop makes a simple and light weight earring.  Oh, I’m also writing a post about jewelry photography. I realize that there are only a few articles out there on this topic for casual hand-made accessories.

Today I’m writing a guest post for Susanna blog – Ophelia’s Ear. She is crazy about earrings and has a very interesting hobby of collecting them. One a day, 7 days-7 earrings! Isn’t that cool?

Go Green bracelets
Its time the planet blue goes green! Save the earth for our children. Alternative fuel, conserve energy, carbon footprints…Seems like everybody is talking about going green. Where do I start? I do my part by conserving power, water and using recyclable bags on a day-to-day basis. I took this as an inspiration to make these trendy bunch of assorted stretchy bracelet with natural beads like wood, shell and glass.

Rustic copper swirls

Rustic copper swirls

Its fun to play with wires, the swirls are a sweet twist when combined with crystal to make these cute earrings. While at it, I found myself unhappy with store brought ear-wires, if you are a jewelry maker you know what I mean. I made these ear-wires, the finish is just the way I want it to be.  They are a perfect pair of earrings with peach and earthy blue green crystals beads.

Clusters pearl and crystal

Cluster earrings, the ones that look like a grape bunch are my personal choice. If u put together the soft white pearls and grey crystals together, they make a versatile earring that one can wear with almost anything. Check out the older post for other cluster earrings in my older post. The colorful clusters 

Focal bead

The crystal bead, doesn’t always have to be the focal point in an earring. Sandwich the spacer bead with bright blue crystal. The other red and green earring is slim and elegant and has an Indian touch to it.
