An accident is a pause in life. For some it is a God sent opportunity to change directions and restart life. Memories of a Butterfly (MOAB), the venture that I am going to talk about today is a result of one such accident. 

An advertising professional, Sreeti Mondol met with an accident which left her bed ridden for about 8 months. Absolutely bored with things, as she healed, she started dabbling in making candles. This is where she rediscovered the joy of making things with her own hands. One thing led to the other and then came this idea of stringing beads and making curtains. 

Beads - so tiny yet can hold so much joy. Ask a girl – any age – for the fascination with beads never ends (probably the material changes from glass to stones to gold…). As a small girl, Sreeti too was totally charmed with beads. She rediscovered this love and today has her clients mesmerized by them. She creates magic with beads by simply stringing the right colours and shapes and materials together. Her journey so far has been truly remarkable and this one woman enterprise is flourishing for all to see.

One look at her collection and you will realise the huge huge variety of beads and designs that she has executed. Sreeti’s work has transcended boundaries to become a work of art. 

The selection of the right beads and patterns leads to a play of light and colour. These curtains can be used as accents or to divide spaces while keeping the sense of space alive.

You can get to know more about the beaded curtains on her website
