How It's Made

Many pieces are handmade by women in one of the cooperatives They work with in Delhi. This cooperative works with women in the surrounding villages of Delhi, making it possible for women to work from their own homes, if they choose.  The earrings and necklaces don't require machinery to make, so the artisans pick up the supplies from the cooperative's workshop and bring them home to create these beautiful earrings. They bend the thick wire using a handheld tool, then weave the small glass beads around the wire or other beads or thread.
