This anklet is made with brass beads, using Dhokra technique. Dhokra is a 5000 years old art form, with the dancing girl of Mohenjodaro being its earliest artefact. It is an ancient method of making metal artefacts by a wax-casting technique. The process of making Dhokra is delicate and uses only natural raw materials. The basic mould is made with fine sand (mostly found next to the river banks) and clay. Belonging to a rare and unique breed of items and processes, the Dhokra products are indeed a collectible.
