Festive 2016 collection

Sayuri has been known for its thematic well planned seasonal collections but it always wasn’t the case.

Sayuri has been known for its thematic well planned seasonal collections but it always wasn’t the case. When I started Sayuri in 2008, I wasn’t trying to cater to a particular audience who like thematic pieces, I was attempting to strike a chord with every woman who wanted something unique and special, something that she would not find anywhere. So I made ranges of jewelry – pieces to fit every style, every color and every price point. Eight years later, life has come a full circle for me and here is a Festive collection that is literally a collection of random thoughts, concepts, and designs.
Presenting pieces from the Festive 2016 collection that are in shades or blue and pink. I’ll post the remaining designs in a following post.

Festive 2016 collection

Unique, handmade colorful beaded necklaces with a variety of interesting mixed media pendants.

Vibrant Lotus Necklace – A long statement necklace with a Lotus paper and resin pendant and multicolored beads
Luminescent sea – Inspired by the frothy sea waters and floating algae the beaded necklace of glass and howlite beads come with a shimmery mixed media pendant.

Beach sparkle necklace – Silk cord necklace with glass beads and a silver foil – paper pendant set in resin
At Indian beaches you can see a rare sight – of women dressed up in silks, flowers and in their finest jewels (particularly during festivals) as opposed to being in quick drying beachwear as in other countries. My necklace though made in traditional blues and greens of the beach theme have elements like silk cord, rhinestones and metal foil to as an ode to this interesting fashion adaptation that is based on a social agenda of looking your best when you go out with your family.

Colors pops – Looped beaded necklace in bright colors with brass links. Picture a Saturday evening at the beach during sunset – its cool, a bit crowded and completely colorful with an energetic vibe. Colorful umbrellas, balloons, cotton candy stalls, and kites dot the beach completely replacing the brown and blue color spectrum with lots of vibrant colors.

Reflections Dew Drop: Icy blue crystal necklace with a Silver foil pendant that has a matt blue patina on it. For added interest I have used silver foil glass beads and silver crystals along with purple glass beads and a double sided purple and green matt crystal bead. The necklace has a lot of intrinsic shine but without that blingly over the top rhinestone type of shine.

So how do you like these pieces? yes, some of them were made for various challenges (ABS, BNB – “The day at the beach”, etc,.) and with certain tweaks, I thought that they would all fit in.
They are all available for sale, please email me to buy

I hope you find it interesting
Cheers

How to make Jhumka earrings

I like doing simple projects on lazy Sunday afternoons that keep me occupied for an hour or two just after my lunch.

I like doing simple projects on lazy Sunday afternoons that keep me occupied for an hour or two just after my lunch. One such afternoon, I stumbled upon some white silk thread jhumka bases I had bought and wondered if I could use them for something else other than Silk Thread jhumkas. My eyes then slowly wandered to the top shelf of my craft materials cupboard where I keep all my paints and glitter and that was when I knew what I wanted to do with them – make light weight glitter jhumka earrings

DIY Glitter Jhumka Earrings Tutorial
DIY Glitter Jhumka Earrings Tutorial

Materials
– 1 pair jhumka base (acrylic hemispherical dome) – any size
– Silver spray acrylic paint
– Mod Podge sparkle (referred to as MP)
– Iced enamel – Silver Inclusion
– Iced Enamels – Relique Glitz Silver
– silver tone eye pins – 2
– silver tone ear hook – 2
– 10mm Silver crystal Rondells – 2
2 mm Silver crystal Rondells – 2
– Round Faux pearls -2
– 2mm glue on clear rhinestones

Tools – Paint brush, Nose pliers, wire cutter


Method
1. Spray paint both the top and the inside of the jhumka bases ( I have used medium size) with silver paint. If you do not have spray paint use can use acrylic paint from a bottle. Spraying is easier. Do 2 coats and let it dry between each coat and between spraying the top and the bottom. Let it rest for 5 minutes.
2. Apply a coat of modpodge to the inside of the domes to seal the paint and let it dry once again.

3. Apply a liberal coat of MP on the top of the base with a brush and sprinkle Iced enamel – Silver Inclusion glitter on it. You can use any Silver glitter, I used Silver inclusion as that was what I had in hand. Blow slightly on the glitter so that it sticks on to the MP and add more MP at this stage followed by a sprinkling of the Relique Glitz Silver. Let it dry.
I have used two different silver glitters here for added depth and dimension (and as I find the regular shiny glitter earrings somewhat tacky). Here the glitz silver is white and reflects a lot of light while the inclusions is a gray silver with a lot of depth. I have used MP sparkle to intensify the shine, you could use the matt version if you want less shine.Yes, the earrings do look much better in person and there are not very glittery.
4. Once they are half dry (slightly tacky to touch) add more MP and glue the rhinestones on. Let it dry completely.

Assembling
1. To a silver tone headpin, add a pearl bead (for weight) and put add the dome on it.
2. Add the larger crystal bead followed by the 2mm bead and using your nose pliers create a loop and Add ear hooks before you close
DIY Glitter Jhumka Earrings Tutorial

Variations:
1. Use different designs of earhooks to change the look and the length (as shown)
2. Use a different color glitter (copper or bronze would be interesting) and other coordinating beads with it
3. Instead of a Jhumka, make tassel earrings using the same idea by adding chains instead of the pearls

Now that 90’s trends like culottes, white sneakers, sailor stripes, and polyester pleated skirts are coming back with a vengeance, I am pretty sure that fine glitter earrings (Gosh I had plenty of them as a kid) are going to come back too. What do you think? Do tell me in the comments if you wear jewelry or accessories that have glitter on them and your reasons for wearing/not wearing glitter.

Green Silk thread bridal Jewellery

Throughout 2015, my evenings were filled with red roses and pearls in an attempt to make bridal jewelry.

Throughout 2015, my evenings were filled with red roses and pearls in an attempt to make bridal jewelry. Though it was lucrative, it felt tiring after a point. I longed to try another technique or another color. Fortunately, A client believed in me to create using Silk thread and I made a pink and orange silk thread bridal jewelry set. Shortly after that, another bride to be from Canada asked me to create something in green -, particularly Emerald green. I was elated as I realised that this was a great (read unique) opportunity for me. Hardly any (North) Indian and Bangladeshi brides pick green for their trousseau and the South Indian ones don’t wear DIY/handmade jewelry for weddings.

The bride was planning to wear a cream and gold lehengha and her mother’s emerald stone earrings for her big day. So I suggested that we use a mix of rhinestones in green along with pearls and gold beads to do along with her clothes. We started with the bangles and, this time, they were made by Prakashini of Twilightcharms as I couldn’t contact the artist who made them for me the first time around. I picked peacock green and bottle green to go along with emerald for the bangles. It was interesting to try the design in a monochromatic color scheme after making it first in an analogous scheme with orange, red and pink. She also wanted bangles for a little girl (presumably a flower girl) to match her baby pink and muted gold jacquard ghaghra. So I picked baby pink, muted gold, and darker pink for her bangles. We didn’t want any embellishments on the bangles so I went for solids and stripes to keep it simple.

Silk thread bangles


Then two necklaces – a long Rani haar (literally translated as “Queen’s necklace) and a short choker style cord were made with lots of rhinestones, beads, and silk thread.

pearl ranihaar


The next item on the list was a Passa, rather a half passa, something that could be worn on the left side of her head. After my Jhoomar struggle, I figured this out very easily. I used the same focals as in the necklace. For the uninitiated a half passa is worn by placing one focal at the center front forehead and the other focal diagonally over the ear on any side and is clipped tied or pinned. A lot of curious folks ask me how many of these items of Indian jewelry are worn so here is a quick illustration.

how to wear a passa


Now the only item lacking in the trousseau was earrings, so the bride wanted silk jhumkas to wear as a set after the wedding. So here is the full set – Green Silk thread Bridal full set – Rani haar, thread cord choker, jhumkas, passa, jhumka earrings and Bangles

Silk thread jhumkas


That brings us to the end of the set. I hope the bride had a wonderful wedding and I wish her a very happy married life.
PS: The bride had sent me pictures and I was happy to see she wore the passa, the cord necklace, bangles and the jhumka earrings on her big day.

Top 5 jewelry trends of 2015 – a compilation

As the wheel of fashion rotates, it spins offs interesting components which mutate into specific directions when they adapt to changing socio-cultural-environmental scenarios. As 2015 is coming to an end (how did it go so fast?) here is a compilation of few such directions or trends, inspirations, materials and colors that were all the rage in 2015.1

As the wheel of fashion rotates, it spins offs interesting components which mutate into specific directions when they adapt to changing socio-cultural-environmental scenarios. As 2015 is coming to an end (how did it go so fast?) here is a compilation of few such directions or trends, inspirations, materials and colors that were all the rage in 2015.


1. Night Light
Forecasted trend for Spring summer 2015
Imagine standing at a busy road intersection at night, watching street lights, outdoor and indoor lighting of glass walled building filtering into the street and merging with vehicular light. After a point it all sort of fades in creating a soft buzz or hums that is constantly morphing into vivid colors and patterns before transcending into soft hues and painterly swirls. Such a visual illusion was a major direction in terms of color and pattern selection for jewellery in 2015. Dull emeralds and lavendars would pair up with striking yellows and grays producing an eclectic effect. Purples in various shades were seen as a continuation from 2014’s radiant orchid. Seed bead jewellery either bead woven or embroidered were seen dominating the wedding and evening wear market with coated or foiled crystals and rhinestones taking the center stage.

 

2. Industrial
Forecasted trend for summer 2015
Architecture and geometry were other strong influences especially in the precious metal segment. The pieces were bold, streamlined with emphasis on exacting standards of quality. With the jewellery brands boldly taking the stepping forward with 3D printing, piping lines, construction pillars and axis lines were key inspirations for statement making jewellery. Raw uncut gems fused with unconventional materials like piping or rubber tubing resulted in the category of Industrial chic jewellery.
The popularity of paper jewellery in the east led to origami being a big influence in the west. These simple paper folds were replicated in metal, resin, clay and other unconventional materials leading to jewellery and accessories that almost look like structural art installations.

Superstition Blog Hop – Nalla neram

Sometime back Tammy Adams of Paisley Lizard, challenged us jewelry lovers to create jewelry that was based on superstition. Though I fear the number13, black cats, propped up ladders and the dristhi of the evil eye, I found them too common to write about and Tammy expressed her desire to know about something ‘Indian’

Sometime back Tammy Adams of Paisley Lizard, challenged us jewelry lovers to create jewelry that was based on superstition. Though I fear the number13, black cats, propped up ladders and the dristhi of the evil eye, I found them too common to write about and Tammy expressed her desire to know about something ‘Indian’. After a lot of brainstorming, I have picked the Indian concept of “auspicious Time” or Nalla neram. This exactly isnt a superstition but more of a belief based on scientific calculations. But since I have not found such a concept in western civilisations I thought that it would be interesting to write about it.

Here is a small background on how time is calculated as per vedic traditions. Hindu days start at sunrise and end at sundown and the timings are studied to figure out the good and less auspicious times for activities throughout the day. They are published at the start of every year (which begins on April 13th or 14) in almanacs called the Gowri Panchangam and Paambu Panchangam in the south. ‘Panch’ means five and ‘angam’ means attributes. Thus these almanacs talk about 5 attributes of time like – Vaaram -day of the week, Tithi – Phase of moon – i.e the number of the day in the month starting from new moon to full moon, nakshatram – star, yogam – time and karanam – half of a tithi. Find today’s hourly analysis below calculated for IST using the Drikpanchang website. If you are curious you could enter your city’s name in the location box there to figure about auspicious times for anyplace in the world.

Each 24 hour day is split into 60 naazhigais, each being 24 minutes long. Thus two and a half nazhigais constitute one modern hour which was known as horai or hora. Hours in a day are divided into different yogams – Amirdha, Dhanam, Uthi, Laabam and Sugam are good and Rogam, Soram and Visham, should be avoided.
Within any given day, there are also certain time periods that are inauspicious. Two of these are Raahu Kaalam and Yama Gandam. The scriptures say that it is ideal if we can use these times totally for worship and not for material activities. It is recommended to avoid inauspicious times while starting something new or important because even with your best efforts, the results may turnout unfavourably. A lot of people light lamps for certain deities during these hours. There is also a time period called “Muhurtam or muhurat or nalla neram” which means auspicious time when new beginnings are favoured. Weddings, house warming ceremonies, naming ceremony, engagements, baby showers, and even some pujas like the Lakshmi puja for Diwali are observed only during Muhurtam times.

Ravi Verma Revisited

Regular readers of this blog or followers of Sayuri would know of the original chithiram collection and my association with Raja Ravi Verma’s paintings. when I was gearing up for this edition collection, I conducted a poll on FB asking people what they wanted to see in the new line.

Regular readers of this blog or followers of Sayuri would know of the original chithiram collection and my association with Raja Ravi Verma’s paintings. when I was gearing up for this edition collection, I conducted a poll on FB asking people what they wanted to see in the new line. A lot of them, requested Ravi Verma inspired pieces and so I decided to deviate a bit from my theme and include them. Here are the two designs

Damayanthi, was a princess of the Vidarbha kindgom and legendary beauty who fell in love with King Nala, an intelligent, handsome and brave warrior by hearing swans talk about him. Nala fell in love with damayanthi the same way too. (Another instance of Purva raga) But the gods would have nothing of it and goad Nala into convincing Damanyanthi to forget him and choose one of the other Gods as her partner, at which he fails. Even when all the Gods are disguised as Nala, She picks Nala correctly and marries him. After a few years of blissful life, one day, due to a curse, Nala looses everything in a gamble, runs away, abandons his wife and gets poisoned and becomes a dwarf. How Nala and Damayanthi fight against all odds to come together and find each other, forms the rest of the story of NalaCharitram. (history of Nala)

My Damayanthi necklace, shows Damayanthi talking to a swan in a painting by Raja Ravi Verma. I have made it as a Glass pendant and set it in shiny silver bezel. The necklace has fabric beads to make it more exotic.. The chain closes with a novelty red and blue toggle clasp. Length excl pendant -22″ , pendant drop – 2.5″.

The next one is based on the painting called, Here comes papa. It shows a young mother with a child on her waist, waiting for her husband to come home. Ravi Verma’s painitngs give incredible details about textiles and jewelry and in this painting, you can see the sheerness of the muslin and the gold thread weaving used in the Malayalee Mundu or the mundum-neriyathum worn by women from Kerala. I got to see many of his originals paintings very recently during my trip to Vadodara. The fashion designer in me, was in the seventh heaven there, trying to figure out the probable weaves and fibres used to create textiles those days.

Here comes papa Necklace– A painting of Raja Ravi verma decoupaged on an painted upcycled sunglasses lens, bordered with rhinestones. Polished glass beads, crystals, safety pins and novelty leaf clasp complete the necklace. Length excl pendant -21″ , pendant – 2.75″

The magazine then published the plagarised neon lace necklace by crediting it to another local blogger.

Creating Jewelry with Fabric – a guest post

As Crafters we often hoard fabric, tucking away piles of fabric scraps in our closet or discarding them in the bin, hardly knowing how and where to use them.

As Crafters we often hoard fabric, tucking away piles of fabric scraps in our closet or discarding them in the bin, hardly knowing how and where to use them. At times the scraps are either too small or too varied to make something substantial. But fear not, you can effectively use them to create matching accessories for every outfit of yours and don a new look every time you step out
Fabric jewellery is the new trend in vogue, stepping out of shadows. A host of designers, artisans, and brands are giving a twist to the traditional Indian jewellery with the help of scraps of fabric which are, then, adorned with rhinestones or even buttons. The result is feather-light, economical, skin-friendly statement pieces coming out in light.

fabric jewelry  by sayuri

Fabric jewellery has been in full swing internationally for quite some time now, and is a household word even with the rank and file there. But, in India this novel concept of jewellery is in its nascent stages with only some celebrities donning these. But considering the fact that fabric jewellery is attractive and affordable, it will bid fair with the masses in no time.
All you need is a figment of imagination and a stash of leftover fabrics. Fabric jewellery provides one with innumerable options in terms of texture, color, design and, therefore, the over-all look. This type of jewellery can be made using almost any kind of fabric, be it chiffon, georgette, tissue, organza and silk or the humbler jute and cotton. For the embellishment, everything from buttons, beads, pearls and shells to rhinestones, semi-precious stones, swarovski-crystals and kundan is on the offer.

So, you can go for an out and out feminine look complete with fabric flowers, ribbon rosettes, laces and pearls or return to your roots with traditional hand-woven fabric, batik-dyed fabric, zardosi and kundan work. Alternatively, go high on bling quotient with swarovski crystals and semi-precious stones, or opt for embroidery, crochet, net and fabric beads for a graceful, suave look.
Satiate the creative pangs of the budding designer in you and give an expression to your creative ideas in the form of these simple and easy-to-make jewellery pieces. Here are some tutorials on fabric jewellery that you might want to try.

Let your imagination run wild and create a plethora of accessories to enhance your outfits. You can, thus, easily use the leftover bits of textile to create a bold and edgy fashion statement. Just put on your thinking caps, create innovative, eye-catching pieces and be the cynosure of everyone’s eyes. All this and more makes fabric jewellery the flavour of the season and all you need to do is to try it before you believe it. So, go ahead, ditch the metal and flaunt your fabricated jewels like a fashionista.

DIY Chunky Rhinestone necklace for mother’s day

Here is another addition to my Rhinestone Jewelry tutorials, A How to on making a chunky Rhinestone necklace as a Mother’s day gift. I have made this necklace colorful as My mom already has a monotone rhinestone necklace but you could make yours monotone if you prefer a sober look.

Here is another addition to my Rhinestone Jewelry tutorials, A How to on making a chunky Rhinestone necklace as a Mother’s day gift. I have made this necklace colorful as My mom already has a monotone rhinestone necklace but you could make yours monotone if you prefer a sober look.
In this necklace I have gone beyond the usually wire wrapping method to create a bezel for the focal stone and used a found object – a Christmas ornament to create a backing. You can use any filigree finding to make similar pendants. No gluing required

Materials:

4 Octagon glass rhinestone amethyst purple 14×10 mm
3 Octagon glass rhinestone champagne 14×10 mm
2 Octagon glass rhinestone olive green 14×10 mm
9 octagon 14×10 mm Settings with 2 loops
1 silver snowflake ornament
1 square foiled rhinestone
10 silver tone jump rings
2 silver tone eye pins
silver tone chain & Lobster clasp

Method: To make things simple I have divided the tutorial into two parts – Pendant and the necklace after the first couple of steps.

1. Prong set all the 9 rhinestones in their respective settings. Check the link for detailed instructions on prong setting
2. Cut off the second loop of a champagne crystal. File to smoothen the edge.You can also use a single loop setting instead.

3. Make the Pendant

a) Place your square crystal( flatback) stone on the snowflake ornament such that the holes of the crystal are in the clear. You could also substitute the star with any filigree star or flower that you have.
b) Firmly fold down the points, one by one as though we are prong setting the stone
c) Thread an eyepin through the top hole (through the filigree)and fold. Bring it up and wrap to make a bail for the pendant. You can also use wire instead of an eyepin and make a bigger/fancier bail.
d) Using another eyepin or piece of wire, connect the single loop champagne stone to the pendant using a wrapped loop

4. Make the Necklace

a) Link the prong set stones in order – amethyst – champagne-olive-amethyst using jumprings
b) Cut 2 pieces of 5″ chain, add a clasp in between using jump rings and connect it to the rhinestone chain
c)connect the pendant it to the rhinestone chain using jump rings

Ta Da!! Your sparkly Chunky Rhinestone necklace is all done. That was pretty simple right? You can add beads in between or danglers to make it fancy. So Why a sparkly necklace for mother’s day – Why not?? Mothers too love their bling!!

Disclosure: The Rhinestones and Settings used are from the good folks over at Beadmixer which I received as a part of a tutorial exchange program by Totally Tutorials.
