Krafted with happiness
Founded out of their sheer love for designing and a passion for handcrafted accessories and décor, Parul Taneja and Anushri Shringi launched pompoms and tassel jewelry back in 2015 when the idea was still fresh. Their products get a crazy amount of love, likes and shares on social media. Earrings and necklaces with colourful tassels turn into chunky statement pieces while still being light on the ears and the pocket. Their USP: The design suits the modern Indian woman. They can be styled with a kurti during the day and can also rock a dress for a night out. “Our products are proudly handmade by a group of women who are housewives by the day and karigars by the night,” informs Shringi.
Price: Rs 199 onwards.

Their USP: Their collection has crystal elements combined with tassels which makes them statement pieces. They come in unique colours and can be worn during the day or night. Some of the pom poms are on hoop earrings, a design that sets them apart from others.
