I have been thinking this for quite some time now... I feel my way of blogging is too sterile. I mean its too clean kinds! I want it to be too perfect... And I am so not that! So from now on I am going to induce a new flavour... ME!

This blog is not just going to be all about my work.... (my label Coyote) but also what all I am up to besides my work.

The idea of personalizing my space and things around me, comes very naturally to me. It just feels right! From designing stickers for my water bottles to doodling on my sunscreen tube, I've done lots! Keep removing labels of these things though. Find them very space invading. 

I love trying crazy things on my self. Love to check and expand my boundaries, growth (not physically though) and keep expressing myself. New hair dos to new hair colors (last one was turquoise), have a piercing too and my latest proud expression is my tattoo!! 

marked with loved ones

The above script is Hindi. I scribbled it on a tissue paper and got it traced on me! It's a list of all the important people in my life (their initials). This picture was taken about after 3 days of getting inked.

The point is... there will be a lot of humane touch from hereon. I will still be sharing beautiful things around me, only not necessarily made by me.

Cheers to newness!

tureens..... one of my favourite words

Tureens or little dishes is what I call them. These little ones are also known as 'diyas' or 'Indian lamps'. All in silver...

ganesha diyas

CV 1. sitting ganesh

CV 2. lying ganesha

The above two designs are of the same size and not more than 1.5 inches each. They look very cute in a set of two. I prefer using them for 'chawal & kumkum/kesar'.

CV 3. ganesha diya with a baati holder

This one is over 2 inches in size. The most troubling part of making diyas/tureens is cleaning the concave part of it. It employs two, sometimes three different processes. In the above cases its the Ganeha's tummy :)

CV 5. ganesha profile

CV 7. tri-turee 
One can keep 'chawal' and 'kumkum' and 'kesar/chandan' all together.

CV 4. baby spoon

This one is a baby spoon. And once the baby grows up, it can be used as a diya. This one has dark green cut onyxes.

CV 8

I like this one. It has a textured wire circling the concave part and an oval cab, bright blue American turquoise of a very fine quality, minus the natural inclusions.

Have many more sterling silver accessories to add here. Shall do it bit by bit.
Rushing to get ready. Have a movie to catch! Did I tell you one of my other favorite things is watching movies. On an average, I watch at least 3-5 movies in a week.

Happy watching to me and to you!
