Final Hathphul

This is the final piece for my B Tech exhibition. Ive used the motifs which I've used for my previous hathphuls as a combination to create these flower elements. Really glad with the way it has turned out.

Just finished with the piercing for my hathphul...what a relief! I decided to use peridots, smokey quarts and citrine in this piece...I'm loving the colours.


Ive been working towards making a hathphul which is similar to the traditional version...the ring and bracelet attached to each other by a medallion and chains. Ive used elements from my previous pieces to come up with this design.

This is my lotus hathphul. The pattern was derived from the rice grain element which is used in traditional Indian jewellery and the form is inspired by a lotus flower. Haven't set the stone yet, but I'm probably setting a garnet in this one.

Mystic hathphul

This is my latest hathphul...really happy with the way it turned out. What do you think?

I got my arsi bright cut as well...this is my favourite. This ring has more surface area which caused the pattern to be more visible. Love it!

All that glitters...

Even though i am really happy with my Hathphuls, i decided to get them bright-cut. I felt as though they lacked something and bright cutting seem like the way to go...

Bright-cut refers to a decorative engraving technique used on metal objects. The decorative designs are created by making a series of short cuts into the metal, using a polished engraving tool that causes the exposed surfaces to reflect light and give an impression of brightness.

I'm quite happy with the result, feels as if my hathphuls have matured.
