Is it wearing jewel make them feel good or social status or pretty.... varies from women to women.
I believe its an beautiful art; enhances the beauty of women.
When I was kid I was allergic to metal, gold only suits my skin. Unfortunately school rule does not allow children to wear even gold ear studs. I had hard-time piercing my ear more than thrice because of sensitive skin. I admire all sort of jewels but when it comes to wear jewel; I was restricted to few types.
Being Keralite its traditional to buy and give gold jewel to daughter during marriage. After my marriage I never remember wearing my gold jewel for different occasions. I admire gold jewel but really don't fancy wear them daily. After my son's birth my sudden love to wear jewel have increased...(pregnancy hormone after effect...hhahah). Unlucky me again because of my son's sensitive skin problem I couldn't wear anything which will aggravate his eczema.
During our last holiday to Kerala, myself and my sister in law went shopping the beads, jewel making tools and other materials. Finally on 1st July I made my first project in jewel, an anklets with crystal and golden beads.
This is my second project an beautiful necklace with black,red,golden mixing beads... I had a matching dollar to match with necklace.
