Handmade Traditional 'Lac' Jewellery - Red Amulet
Jewellery from South Asia is known for its intricate designs, patterns, and the techniques used in production. This handmade necklace and matching set of ear pieces is made on a base of 'lac', a substance made from resinous deposits on trees of various kinds. Once the base is complete, it is embellished with pearls, beads and metallic paint. In the days of yore, this process was done with real gold, silver and precious stones. Fastened at the back with a metal hook on multiple strands of matching red beads.
As a fashion accessory, this jewelry is made with metallic foil and tiny metal beads. An iconic piece, this is a testimony to the centuries of crafting skills in the sub-continent. In the South Asian culture, feminine beauty and grace is compared to a resplendent full moon; paired with traditional attire, this will put you in the same league. Need we say more?
