Embroidered Assertion Jacket
A muted-color jacket means you could put on a brooch with shiny colours. And even one thing that’s completely gold for instance. It can stand out. I selected the sunshine inexperienced “Change Of Fortunes #InTime 02” 2.5 inch diameter brooch. It seems to be virtually neon on this jacket. Easy gold lengthy earrings that dangle vertically, praise the gold leaf from the brooch. For make-up, I often persist with a clear basis, a pink lipstick, barely darker eyebrows & a bronzer on my cheek hole.

Structured Shirt & Dhoti
The shirt is printed, so finest to choose a single coloration brooch. Numerous permutations and mixture of pink and blue make purple / lilac, so, I assumed that “The Magic Returns #InTime 02” 2.5 inch brooch would work right here. A smaller sized brooch may get completely misplaced within the print of the shirt.

The “costume” is definitely the dhoti / skirt from the Tarun Tahiliani ensemble above. That’s how my mind works. Make a brand new outfit from the half of one other outfit. If it suits, why not.
I picked a pink one from my Diwali 2020 Artwork Sequence, the “Requited #InTime 02”, 2.5 inches diameter brooch. It really works effectively with the stable blue and enhances the pearls and gold of the multi-string necklace.
The necklace was bought from the Amrapali retailer at Khan Market, a number of years in the past. I don’t recall when. The ear rings are from the identical retailer as effectively.
Embroidered Cocktail Gown
My most favorite costume in my wardrobe. Normally, I put on it with simply the gold ear rings. However one can get away with extra bling through the festive season. I picked the most important piece, “Of Reminiscences #InTime 03”, 3 inch diameter brooch. I paint these large items for myself as a result of I LOVE carrying giant brooches and most of my shoppers want 2 and a couple of.5 inch diameter brooches. There are some shoppers, after all, who love the large brooches as a lot as I do, which is why I all the time launch the work on my store.

Ear rings have been my first treasured jewelry buy from Amrapali in Khan Market.
Satin & Georgette Sleeveless Mini-Gown
A cutest pink costume that ends 4 inches above my knees. Delicate embellished & sparse embroidery on the georgette overlay. The blue, gold and copper “Dig Deep #InTime 02”, 2.5 inches diameter brooch is what I picked to pair with this ensemble. I didn’t wish to add extra coloration with the jewellry, therefore caught to silver. However I additionally wished to maintain it heavy and stylish.

This might simply be a day AND night time look.
Silver jewelry was bought from Amrapali a few years in the past.
Block-Printed Silk Jacket
Heavy prints on a light-weight Chanderi cloth. A proper collar. Matching treasured jewelry. So, the colour of the portray needed to be one thing that might stand out even from a distance. “Elevation #InTime 01”, 2 inches diameter brooch, is certainly one of my favourites from the Diwali 2020 Artwork Sequence.

Jewelry was a present.
The Again of The Brooch
All my brooches have a magnet clasp on the again.
This was a selection I made as a result of I completely abhor it when pins poke by way of treasured silk and cashmere. The magnets that I take advantage of are fairly sturdy however won’t maintain effectively when worn on very thick cloth like double layered tweed for instance. The magnet holds nice on a few of my thickest puff jackets and on all method of overcoats and silks and sweaters, and so forth.
Each bit has its identify written on the again, signed by me and the 12 months of the paintings can be talked about.
Every buy is accompanied by a Certificates of Authenticity to assist set up provenance in case of a future re-sale of the paintings.
