The Jogi Necklace
It seems to me that we repeatedly buy the things that we love. That we have a strange longing to recapture the beautiful moment that once was. I don’t know about you, but I sure have caught myself doing this. Reaching out again and again in different places for the objects that made me feel safe, happy and loved. Today, I’d like to tell you the story of one such object.
It was on a recent trip to South India that I acquired a beautiful necklace. While in Pondicherry with my friends Ganapathi and Molly, we decided to do some touristy shopping. If you’ve been there, you must have seen those stores generally run by Kashmiri men, stores that sell antiques, carpets, art pieces, bohemian clothes and jewelery. We went to such a store. These stores are generally of great interest to the Western population visiting the Indian beaches, but somehow we ended up here too. At this shop, I found this necklace made of pearls and amethyst stones. It was love at first sight. It became something I would wear whenever I was ready to step into the spotlight. It was the birth of Jogi.
Who’s Jogi? It’s a persona that I created on this trip. She is essentially a cool, youthful, rock ‘n’ roll chick, who combines oriental and western sensibilities to express her own unique style. Thanks to the beautiful locations, people and objects that I was surrounded by, I lived as Jogi for a couple of months. While in my Jogi mode, I would dress up as her, sing songs, learn to play the guitar and embody a fearlessness that was generally not there in my life.
With time, the necklace broke and I couldn’t find another one just like that, but I found a close second by a brand called Corocraft, which has white crystals instead of pearls in it. You can check it out below. I created this list so that others too can have the feeling of wearing these beautiful stones.

It’s the first time I’m buying from this brand. The first time around they sent me the wrong order, but after speaking to the owner, I was able to get the correct product delivered to me. I really love the design of this necklace. It is unique as it has rectangular amethyst stones.
