Location: Bull Temple, Bangalore, Karnataka, India; Material: Silk
I purchased this pair of earrings in India, during my study abroad group’s travel week. We were at the first destination our travels: Bangalore, the IT capital of India. One of the major sites of the city is the famous Bull Hindu Temple, which is very small and has a large bull right in the center of it. At the beginning of the walkway to the temple, there is a large sculpture of two bullhorns around the walkway. Right in front of this sculpture were a few stands selling various items, including different color and size variations of the above earrings. Most of them were multi-colored, and some were all one color, like the pair I purchased for myself. I bought a number of pairs for my friends at home as souvenirs as well. You can find them many places in India. They remind me a lot of dreamcatchers. I do not wear them very often, but I still think they are beautiful nonetheless.
