Set of earrings and necklace in brass. Large oval shaped plate and wire pendant on a thick string of brass beads.
This piece has been handmade by a tribal artisan in a village of Orissa, India.
Tribal communities have a great love for adornment that is expressed in ornaments worn during religious festivals and important social occasions. The ornaments are usually made from brass and fashioned by hand or in a mould.
Designs are embossed on brass sheets with design moulds or korli and then used in making pendants and rings. Each bead is separately made by hand using metal wire and sheets. Certain beads such as beads with 6 faces require a lot of time and effort and an artisan is able to complete only a few beads in a day. Once the beads are made, tribal women bead them using coloured threads to form necklaces, bracelets and earrings. Ornaments are also made by the lost wax casting or dhokra method which is a 5000 year old method of casting metal.
