Product Details
When Sanju was engrossed in watching her regular tv shows one day and she began observing the chandeliers featured in the sets of the episodes. Jhoomar, which means 'chandelier' is Sanju's take on all those light fixtures that caught her eye on tv. She began by attempting to portray all the small, miniscule details, but soon realized that making larger, shadowy patterns would give her Manchaha a unique edge. She hopes that her version of a glistening chandelier will bring more calming effect to a room.
