    Hi Aruna,

    Thank you for going thro' my post - Pot Painting and Gem Trees.

    The two are called Gem Trees (this is what I was told when I learnt it). One I have made using gold/colored strings with leaf shaped sequins and the other one with danglers. I learnt them 5 years ago and gifted them as Navrathri giveaways last year.

    My special thanks to Shilpa, Usha mami, Sangeetha and few others who encouraged me saying that I should make more and give them as Navrathri/Diwali return gifts rather than buy stuff from out.

    Cheers,
    Sudha

    Dear Viji,

    If it is the apple shaped hanger with the ganesha it is "wood" cut in the shape of an apple which I bought readymade and stuck the terracota ganesha on it and painted everything using fabric paints and decorated them with sequins and beads.

    The torans are both handstitched by me using poplin/long cloth with canvas cloth as padding. I used readymade frames and mirrors and stitched them on it. Decorated the edges with gold lace again hand stitched, hung birds (made by me), readymade animals, etc that you get in either gurjari or some craft fair. Both the torans were made to order for friends. Again these were done 4 years ago.

    The small silver color "moram" is again readymade bought from craft fair and I painted it and stuck the terracota ganesha and made the hanger using oxidised beads. I made 12 of these with different colour combos and gifted them away 3 /4 years ago during Ganesh Chaturthi.

    Cheers,
    Sudha

    Hi Sudha,

    Superb crafts........I love the last one....what you mentioned as gem trees...what are the materials required, besides those colourful beads. Where did you learn it from. Don't know why...I am crazy for anything with beads :crazy.
