Sweet Jewelry (हलव्याचे दागिने)
हलव्याचे दागिने (Jewelry made with sugar candies which is called ‘Halwa’ in Marathi)
This cute looking jewelry is made to celebrate ‘Makar Sankranta’ (a Hindu festival celebrated in the Month of January every year). Babies and kids up to 5 years of age dressed up with this sweet jewelry. Such type of jewelry is also made for newlywed brides. This is the only day in a year when a newlywed bride can wear a black saree and this white jewelry looks just beautiful on it.
This sweet jewelry was adorned by cute Tanvi (my friend Shilpa’s daughter) and other babies. This is an authentic Marathi way of celebrating ‘Makar-Sankranta’ festival, simply enjoyed making it!
