It’s a simple accessory that can jazz up any outfit. We are talking about the beaded necklaces that the girls of Bishop Cotton Women’s Christian College simply love to wear.
Go on the campus of the college and you will see almost every other student wearing gorgeous neckpieces in an array of colours. Be it on t-shirts or kurtas, long tops or salwar kameezes, these neckpieces in all shapes and sizes just add to the beauty of every garment.

This trend was started in the college last year by a former student Shruti, who used to create customised beads for the students.

And slowly, the fever caught on as many girls started placing orders with Shruti and got the beads of their choice. Some students were even inspired to design their own chains.
Zahra, a student of second year BBM, is one such girl. Displaying a black-beaded necklace that goes well with her black top, she says, “I created this necklace myself. It took me around 15 to 20 minutes to make it,” she says. “I created this from another chain that I had purchased.” Agree Zahra’s friends Chandni, Safa, Uzma and Divya, who are students of second and final years.

Divya, a student of final year BBM says, “These beads go with anything and everything. They add on to the simplest of all garments.” While opting for these beaded chains, go for the basic colours like red, black and blue as these go well with dresses of all colours. You can get beads of various colours strung together also. So experiment with funky colours like yellow, purple and pink. Says Zahra, “You can make them the way you want.” She is right considering the range of big, small, round, square, flat  beads in all colours that are available in the market.

There are some fashion tips one must keep in mind while donning these beads. “Don’t wear big matching earrings while wearing beads as you can end up looking tacky,” advise the girls. Safa, a student of third BCom, suggests the places where one can get these beads. “You can get them everywhere in the City — Brigade Road, Commercial Street and even Koramangala,” she informs. These beads are highly economical and don’t pinch the students’ pockets as well. With a starting price of Rs 30, these beads can go up to a maximum of Rs 100 if you are shopping on the streets. And the prices only get cheaper if you put your bargaining talents to their best use. Well, what a small price to pay for looking stylish, we say!
