‘Thewa’ is the most commendable and intricate jewelry art form that originates from the royal land of Rajasthan.
A secretly guarded technique, It has been handed down from generation to generation of certain craftsmen who call themselves Raj Sonis.
It is a very detailed and intricate process. A 23ct gold piece is first beaten into a very thin sheet. Intricate designs are then manually inscribed onto these gold sheets using a very fine chisel. This gold sheet, called “Thewa Ki Patti” is fixed to a lac-resin compound spread on board by slightly warming the lac and then pressing the gold sheet onto it. An openwork pattern is manually carved through these gold sheets placed on the lac-resin covered board by knocking off the portions which ultimately creates the intricate design.
