$75.00 USD


Wedding or Party Bracelet bangle from India. This bangles pair is inspired by the meenakari work from a town called Jaipur. 
This 'waves of the ocean' bracelet has a shiny gold effect to the copper, making it look identical to a piece of gold jewejry with red & black minakari. Wrist bling at its best. The pictures say it better than words- party wear for the fashionista.

Meenakari, also called enamelling, is the art of decorating a metal surface by fusing mineral substances to it. Meenakari was introduced to India by the Mughal kings in the early 16th century. So, this delicately designed bracelet comes from workmanship which dates back to some 400 hundred years.

The meenakari work is very similar in craftsmanship to the miniature design and coloring on the famous Faberge eggs. The design is etched into the metal and then the 'meenakar' or the artist applies the color that has to be fired [at 750 to 850 degrees Centigrade], for it to be fixed onto the metal. Once cooled, it is then burnished or polished with agate and tamarind solution.

India’s textile, fabric, jewellery & craft traditions go down centuries- the talent of the craftsman and his or her dedication to the craft, passed on from one generation to another. A weave, a mix of colors, a design or a motif, a print, a piece of applique work- each a labor of love for the artisan

Artikrti’s [meaning 'artistic creations'] mission is to take the fascinating kaleidoscope that is India and get the world outside to experience it. And add a stroke of beauty that’s different, to each woman’s life- to her personal beauty and her home.
