I love the combination of the bamboo base, the silk border and the meenakari work clasp!
I think the product line below is my personal fave- I have a weakness for raw silk clutches. I think of it as the 'Portrait Line', I'm sure Anandita has a far more creative term ;)
And its not just clutches, 500 BC also designs lovely bags
500 B.C. bags were featured in the NY Times 36 Hours in Mumbai section! I love the NY Times 36 hours series, and the Mumbai write up makes me want to revisit the city. Do read it.

To catch a glimpse of more of 500 B.C's gorgeous clutches and to look up their retail locations across the globe, please visit their website.
I would like to thank Susan from Sans! who runs the blog 'The Dollhouse Diaries: My Maharaja's Palace' for the tip on 500 B.C. Her blog is one of my top favourite blogs- she blogs on her journey of creating miniature dollhouses and is a mind blowingly creative person. Oh! And Susan is luck enough to own a few of 500 B.C. clutches <sigh>
Also, sorry about the long delay between posts. I couldn't upload any of the photos yesterday, as Blogger seemed to be working on their server maintenance.
Stay tuned for another Artist Profile tomorrow from the blogsphere... A demain!
