I have got chance to see so many crafts scattered all over the stalls and categorized based on so many aspects, like states within India, or theme of the crafts, or kind of crafts.

They have sold hand made jewelry sets also, they were so attractive, they were also designed based on how each state people wear jewelry, I can see different colors, metals etc.

So many crafts are made out of clay too, they are awestruck designs, can't imagine that these beautiful structures can be made out of clay too.

I saw so many different amazing paintings, particularly famous art paintings techniques from different parts of India, like Tanjore paintings & Mysore paintings (South India), Eastern India paintings, Rajput paintings (Rajput paintings depict a number of themes, events of epics like the Ramayana and the Mahabarata, Krishna's life, beautiful landscapes, and humans), etc.

There were some beautiful glass articles , some metal articles too, like large number of Brass Deepams.

Let's continue looking at some more crafts, in this episode.

Black metal Jewelries from North India

Wow !!, aren't they beautiful ?. Yes, they are simple black metals, no additional colors, yet they are rich !! Very usual designs, yet they look unique, and you also, when wear them. Most of them are ranging from thin to thick jewelry, facilitating with chain of hooks to adjust the length of the necklace.

While they are completely made out metals, on the other side some bunch of neck pieces are made out of colorful beads, and the attractive black metal pendent. Such a nice combination, allowing it wear from Traditional to modern suites.
