Oh MAN these handmade hair accessories by Deepa Gurnani are pretty, aren’t they?
I’ve had quite a taxing week really, and haven’t had much time to create content and really wasn’t going to post today at all, but when I opened yet another email with the word “festival” or “Coachella” in the subject, I was really blown away by these gorgeous pieces and so happy that I opened it.
And probably, more than anything, I was inspired to DIY a few of them, because while beautiful, they are quite pricey… but they are hand-crafted in India by the finest local artisans using embroidery skills passed down from generation to generation, so I understand why they are. I think obviously if you have a wedding or event coming up, they are DEFINITE must-haves, but I’m still thinking about how I can DIY a few of these hair accessories because why not? I have a similar Necklace Turned Hair Accessory DIY from a few years ago, and though it’s a light necklace, I think you could DIY any sized necklace into a hair crown in the same way.
