Ten ivory-colored cylindrical buffalo bone beads with black zigzag and dot motifs form the front of this beaded necklace designed by Harpreet Kaur of India. The beads are strung on a thick gathering of black cotton threads that are wrapped at the top with more black thread.
Harpreet and her husband have one child that they support.
Harpreet grew-up with a love of Indian textile design, in particular the art of embroidery, which she learned from her mother. Apart from her early maternal lessons, she is self-taught. Harpreet has diligently applied herself to mastering the embroidery and textile embellishment techniques that define her designs. In turn, she has passed these skills to the people who collaborate with her.
Nearly 50 percent of Harpreet's workshop sales are through Novica. This steady income has enabled her to grow her workshop and to provide for the education of her own child and her workers' children.
Harpreet has worked very hard to make her workshop a success. She is now able to employ other artisans in her workshop on a full-time basis.
