All these bracelets you can see in India in shops or around women's arms are maked at home. I am speaking of the little "stones" inclusion.
They put the stones on a line and after getting the plastic circle hot with ashes , they roll this circle on the stones to include them into the plastic. Stones are synthetic, of course.

This is the house gate of the young girl on left. They three are friends and you can notice how different clothing they wear.
One wear traditionnal with embroideries little pearls and arms bracelets, the others more contemporary but still close to the traditionnal colors.
Khuri is in the desrt, about 45 km from Jaisalmer; building and decorating houses is the women job, so they have the feminine touch, in decoration as well as in curved architectury.

In the very busy Chandni chowk. This man on the rickshaw was a little bit delicate, personnaly i was not affected so much by the smelling.
However, i remember once time in Agra, in the pigments chowk where everybody was coughing, sidewalkers, sellers...after a moment I was coughing myself. These wonderful indian colors are not safe, during the holi festival many accidents occure because of them.
