Do visit her blog - http://ranjana-craft-blog.blogspot.in/ . Her Face book page -"Ranjana's creations" .Even if the working hours are strenuous and life gets busy with her kid she takes out time to ignite her passion and learn with each passing day .The ear rings she makes are to die for. They are appealing and the color combinations are pretty.
Some of the ear rings she made are below.

You can find more artistic works on dresses and sarees at http://ranjana-craft-blog.blogspot.in/search/label/Dress%20design. On her blog you will find the products of your choice using the labels and tags.
She also makes the art work for specific occasions and festivals. She makes Kumkuma(Vermilion) bharanis. Mostly they are made of wood in various designs. She used kundans to decorate them. The below one is my most favorite design with sliding doors and two compartments. When every nook and corner of the house exudes art, every thing seems interesting :)
The above saree and blouse are specially made to wear on the occasion of Diwali. I immensely liked the patch work , laces attached , screen motifs used and also the delicate golden chamkis. The design is so intricately and artistically done that I can only applaud looking at it.
In the above picture you are seeing the Rakhis with cards ready to be sent. Aren't they lovely? I am sure they will multiply the smiles!
I never like the costly greeting cards which we purchase. Rather than getting some thing from a shop how cool is the idea of making it yourself and writing a personalized poem or a message? The above hand made cards are my personal favorites. It gives a feeling that you took the effort to make the event special :)
Not only this she also has the painting talent. She makes pencil sketches and also makes glass paintings and coffee paintings. Have you heard of coffee paintings ? Yes I too heard it for the first time on her blog. Only coffee and water are used in the painting. Have a glimpse at it below.

She also does the ceramic work on pots and aluminium plates. This is done using the ceramic dough and sand. The one below is a Moghulai style flower vase with the vines made of ceramic dough and the second one is a design made on an aluminium plate.

Icing on the cake is that she has recently been awarded by a blogging community Indiblogger.in for the best blog under "hobbies" section. Check out here.
I can't think of any other person who deserves this award more than her. She is a true winner.

I wish she becomes a full blown entrepreneur pretty soon and inspires all of us. Do encourage her!
