The Tribalista

'The Tribalista' is a harmonious connection between the tribal and modern world. This is one of my past works. We had a module of fashion accessories in which we were to make 2 types of bags. This was the first time I followed the proper design process- theme, inspiration board, sketches and final product.

The tribal prints and colors were major inspiration. The client is a strong woman who seeks an escape from the modern vying world to unleash her tribal instinct. It is a power play of both the world.

The Inspiration Board 

The Tribal Flat Bag/ Clutch

The Tribal Clutch

The Tribal Envelope Bag/Clutch made for my best friends later.

The fabric was the key inspiration for the tribal theme and the shape of the bags where modern and edgy, creating 'The Tribalista' Collection. Would love to hear your views on it in the comments below.

Until next time...

Metal & Reuse Accessories

This is a quick post in which I am sharing accessories made in the workshop for accessory design under the tutelage of Devinder Layal. My gold handcuff bracelet DIY (here) was based on this workshop. Here are some of the accessories that I did in this session.

Twisted metal wire and pearl bracelet

Textured Pendant

Coiled metal wire earrings

Textured Pepsi can earrings

Pepsi can and pearl earrings

Coiled metal wire ring

Braided wire with pearl bracelet

Working with metal wires and cans can be fun. But it should be done with precautions as both can be sharp. 

It was a very creative workshop where we learned different techniques of metal jewelry. I had loads of fun making these. Let me know which of these was your favorite in the comments below!

Until next time,
