Pendant and earrings are
made of dhokra with Terracotta beads . This is a unique piece where terracotta
beads and Dhokra have been used together a very different effect .

Material
: Terracotta and Dhokra

Dimension : Length of Necklace - 23 cms ( inclusive of the pendant )

Length of Pendant - 3 cm ,
Width - 9 cm 

The beads are made of
Terracotta which which is clay that has been hand molded , baked in the
furnace and thereafter hand painted . An extremely labour intensive process.

The pendant is made of
Dhokra . Dhokra (or Dokra) is non–ferrous metal casting using the
‘lost-wax casting’ technique. This technique of metal casting has been used in
India for over 4,000 years and is still in use. Craftsmen involved in the
making of Dhokra jewelry rely on materials at their immediate disposal – wax,
resin and firewood from the forest, riverbed clay and a firing oven made by
digging a hole in the ground. Such resources might seem very easy to procure,
but in tribal hamlets, where such jewelry is made, crafts persons are
dependent on nature, and it is their hard work that creates Dhokra Jewelry.
