These pair of earrings are made from Terracotta  and are handpainted .

The very word ‘terracotta’ literally means – “baked earth.” In practice, it implies clay-based un-glazed ceramic material from which skilled craftsmen create jewelry in its natural, brownish-orange color.

The raw material for this craft is ordinary clay, derived from the beds of water bodies like river, lakes and ponds. The process of making jewelry with terracotta is simple yet labour- intensive. Once the clay – dough is made – shapes are molded by hand . Then the material is allowed to dry and harden in the sun. The jewelry is  then baked in an earthen oven or fired in a kiln. The baked jewelry  takes on saffron-orange hue. Finished terracotta jewelry  is hand painted in vivid colors and  glazed for a lustrous look to enhance it’s appeal .
