Handmade Traditional 'Lac' Jewellery - Green Gold
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 in emerald green 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. A set of five pieces strung on multiple strands of matching brown beads, to complete the necklace and one piece used for each ear, this set is a stunning design yet not too showy.
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?
