Terracotta Jewellery Making Workshop
Terracotta literally means ‘baked earth’ and is made from natural clay, giving it a reddish-brown color. It may be glazed for durability or to add color. Being water proof and sturdy, several ancient sculptures in this clay are still intact. It was used traditionally to create figures of deities on festive occasions and ceremonies besides it is used in jewellery and handicrafts.
Making terracotta jewellery might appear to be a simple form of art, but it is a labor-intensive technique. From making the clay to molding it to desired shape and then baking it, is a long process. After the terracotta item is baked, it is then painted for a lustrous appearance.
Simple designs of Terracotta with minimal details can be combined with semi-formal, ethnic wear or even everyday wear. Heavily embellished jhumkas, earrings, pendants, rings, bracelets and bangles are an apt accessory for teaming up with lehengas, Anarkali kurtas and traditional heavier saris. Being non-reactive in nature, Clay and Terracotta jewellery suits all skin types, and does not cause allergies. Terracotta or clay objects are not sturdy and require careful handling. The jewellery can be wiped with a moist cloth if necessary.
