Colourful visit to Shilparamam II

I have shared my learning from this visit in terms of photography, at the end of this post. Have a look and let me know about your suggestion too !

I was talking about the photographs of beads, pottery and women accessories in the last post, which I am sharing up here. Just like before, these photos also depict a bright color splash on different mediums altogether. Taking up the beads section first, here we go for a vibrant ride below.. 🙂

This is how beautiful the loose beads looked, spread across on a large table. They were used to make customized bracelets or key-ring or neck piece or whatever-you-may-want out of them

This is the thread with which the beads were stringed together in the form, the customer would prefer 🙂 Customization on the roll !

Above, you can see a sneak-peak of the bracelet hand-made with those beads.

These button-like beads above, were pasted on to the silver sticks to make stunning earrings out of them. And no wonder, these were selling like hot-cakes ! I bought a purple pair from this collection, for my Best friend 🙂

Used in so many forms, beads for sure make great accessories for women ! Most of these alluring beauties above, are hand-made and the available varieties were enough to cater to different tastes of customers. After the beads category, let’s go onto another ride now.. And this is where I got confused, if the God was also put on Sale !

This is from the shop which sold the name-plates and they had a name-plate for God too ! 🙂

There is something ironic about this photograph above, which speaks itself aloud ! Let me know your views on that..

Just next to the God idols (shown above), this shopkeeper was keeping an eye on the customers visiting on her stall ! How carefully had she packed them, I thought.

A picture from the same shop… Unbreakable it read ! Oh Lord …. (My thoughts blooming in different directions here) Let me know, what you think of this ?…. I would be interested to have a discussion on this topic.. Alright, moving on, here is a glimpse of some more women accessories around the place. I am just thinking how true they say, when they say that be it any fair or any exhibition, there are hardly any things for men to buy ! 😛 Exhibitions and fairs are more or less flooded with the things exclusively for women !  *Giggle*

Are you wondering what is it down there ?

Rings they are ! 🙂 I wanted to pick one, but then I don’t wear many so dropped the idea and moved on !

A lovely long trail of earrings up there. Captivating… Isn’t it !

And what do you have to say about this jute chappals-cum- footwear collection below ?.. I just heard of them being quite durable..

Never tried though 🙂

And lastly comes the pottery collection.. Hand-made and Hand-painted again ! A lot of hard-work is involved in bringing alive every single piece I must say..

No words for this collection…

Lined up in a row… beautiful items for home decor above. That’s it for Shilparamam.. It was for sure an amazing experience ! 🙂  However, this visit taught me one lesson which I shall always keep in mind..

Lesson from this Photo-shoot : Always arrange for and go with a camera battery back-up, no matter what. Our camera’s charger would do nothing when the moments would be running away or the light would be fading away. In fact there also may be a possibility that due to the power cut, we may not be able to charge the camera’s battery itself ! That’s exactly what happened with me too and I happened to miss so many shots around the time, when the light got low, so warm and beautiful. I wish I could do something about it at that time !

Or another option can be to.. Plan and Click”  In that case, no doubt the camera’s battery would sustain for a longer time. I am yet on a mission to begin with planning before clicking. Almost all of my shots from this series were documented as and when the events unfolded.

These were my learning’s from the visit to Shilparamam. I am glad to have been shared my collection from the Shilparamam visit with you on the blog. Thanks for stopping by.. Your feedback on this post and your presence on the Facebook page is awaited.  🙂

Live. Love. Laugh. & Keep Smiling.

Yours Lovingly,
Amrit Ammu.
