Good Thing.jpgWhen you visit Damini Artisans at No- 20, Arunachalam Road, do not miss out on a lovely dancing peacock embedded with Turquoise stone in beaten brass and silver. The turquoise is set in the Kasavu chain pattern which is a typical Kerala style. Handcrafted by an artisan from Kerala who has worked extensively with temple jewellery to give it a 3D effect, the six-micron gold plating further adds to the lustre of the ornament. This necklace and more such unique pieces of jewellery designed by artisans from all over the country with varieties that spoil you for choice, are on for sale at the Turquoise Thiruvizha. Earrings, necklaces and more crafted by artisans from Jaipur to Kerala and even tribal artisans from Nagaland, made of turquoise, curated by Parveen Sikkandar, director, Damini are on display at an exhibition-cum-sale at Kotturpuram.

“This is bringing to light the craftsmanship of lesser-known artisans from all corners of the country, thus giving them a chance to find a market here. Besides, turquoise doesn’t cause allergies. Women will love the collections,” assured Parveen.

Radiant sky blue, mosaic grey and blotchy green dominate the precious stone palette  in the collection that is natural and soothing to the eyes. The grains, shades, gradation, and patches are kept intact to retain their natural appeal, she adds.
