Bombay Bengal Necklace

The Bombay Bengal Necklace was inspired by the beauty and mystique of India's native wildlife, the sacred Holi Festival and the Pushkar Camel Fair. The necklace features hand painted wooden tiger and camel beads from India, handmade rainbow rayon tassels and an array of vintage and contemporary Swarovski crystals on an etched matte gold plated chain.

About the Inspiration ::: Holi is a spring festival which is known as the "festival of colors" or "the festival of sharing love." Participants in the festival chase and cover each other in a polychromatic array of dry powders and colored water, resulting in an explosion of riotous color all over the streets. The majestic Bengal Tiger has been a national symbol of India since the 25th century BCE. An emblem of strength and mystic power, the tiger even holds a position in the Hindu pantheon - Durga, the principal form of the Goddess  in Hinduism is depicted riding into battle on her tigress, Damon. Every year during the fall, thousands of people descend upon Pushkar Lake in Rajasthan to participate in the annual Pushkar camel fair. Camels are adorned with spectacular tassels, pom poms and embroidered textiles in beautiful vibrant colors.
