Hastatkaar is intricate jewellery based on a vision to make affordable jewellery with safety to all sections of working women with prime motive of preserving natural resources. Keeping in mind sustainability, the designer has used raw materials such as beechwood and silver. The specific jewellery piece is a body gear, which is inspired from Kathak dance form which emphasizes on hand and foot movements. Major portion of the body gear is made using beach wood which is soft in nature, provides flexibility and has the capacity to replenish and sustain itself. Simple and graceful designs on wood makes the body gear look more elegant and charming. To enhance its beauty, dark walnut polish is used which is soothing to the eyes. Silver has brilliant white metal lustre and acts as an essential component to design intricate and customized jewellery. The body gear is also embedded with a GPS tracking device that takes care of safety of women which is the need of the hour. GPS tracking device with blue tooth technology can be synched with mobile. Single soft touch on the back of the device can alert 5 contacts at one go. Device takes help of Google maps which searches for nearest police station to alert them, these meets the requirement of “safety with beauty”.
