Debi Earrings
FOLKDAYS Nº 45

Artisans: Jibon Chandra Kormokar

Material: 100% 21 carat gold

Country: Bangladesh

These beautiful earrings are made out of gold wire by our Bengali goldsmith Jibon. During the production process he melts the raw gold over charcoal fires and then moulds it into the earrings using a centuries-old technique. Gold, being the most malleable metal of all, offers unique opportunities for the worker. According to Jibon, a skilled goldsmith using only his hands and tools can create fine jewellery that will rival anything that a machine can make.
