Color splash

March has begun and so as the summer.

Holi is a spring festival, also known as the festival of colors or the festival of sharing love.

In the Braj region of India, where the Hindu deity Krishna grew up, the festival is celebrated for 16 days in commemoration of the divine love of Radha for Krishna.
The festivities officially usher in spring, with Holi celebrated as a festival of love.

As a baby, Krishna developed his characteristic dark blue skin color because the
she-demon Putana poisoned him with her breast milk.
In his youth, Krishna despaired whether the fair-skinned Radha and other girls would like him because of his skin color.
His mother, tired of the desperation, asks him to approach Radha and color her face in any color he wanted. This he does, and Radha and Krishna became a couple.
Ever since, the playful coloring of Radha’s face has been commemorated as Holi.

The Holi festival has further cultural significance.
It is the festive day to end and rid oneself of past errors, to end conflicts by meeting others, a day to forget and forgive. People pay or forgive debts, as well as deal anew with those in their lives.

This time, I am bringing to you the jewellery inspired by these colors.

Multicolored thread pom-pom and brass.

This collection is for the limited period and limited quantity.

Each piece comes with a surprise for Holi festival.

Just shoot an email on antimakhanna@gmail.com and find them on your doorstep.

Don’t wait and make them yours to wear on Holi 🙂

Best wishes,
Ant!
