Notes on Antique Textiles, Folk Art & Timeless Traditions – Jaina Mishra
Given a blank slate could I have come up with this earring design?
Most probably not.
Presenting the most amazing earring design – The Thuriya earring of Assam:
‘Thuria’ or Thuriya’ is the name of a flower and is used to describe this earring. The Thuriya flower form is also used in necklaces.
An external image shows how these are to be worn:
The earring is wider at the bottom than at the center and therefore there is some struggle to put it on – but once done, it does not fall off.
Am hoping someday I’ll be able to wear these…. I just can’t seem to keep up up with the stylish ladies of the past!
