These Turning Twig Earrings and Thick Step Ladder Mantra Bracelet are a part of Sikara’s India Mantra Collection. The inspiration for this design comes from the photograph above taken by Mousumi on a trip to India. The boat in the photo is called a Shikara, an Indian word meaning houseboat. These wooden boats are used for transportation, fishing or as homes. The name of our company, Sikara, comes from this Indian word.
