Chalk powder Jewellery

This is the first work I completed using the chalk powder. I made this for DD for one of her silk pavadai.

In this piece, the pendant, earrings and the golden beads in the necklace are made of chalk powder. I mixed the chalk powder and Fevicol in a consistency of Chapathi dough to be shaped. Made balls from the dough and inserted a thin stick for making holes on it for beading with the gear wire. Shaped the pendant and the earrings. Once dried, coloured with Fevicryl pearl metallic golden colour and let it for dry. Applied blue paper glitters for the pendant and the earrings. Had some age old blue beads with me. Alternated that with the golden beads and attached the pendant!
