Visitors: 295

Metal Handicrafts are an integral part of Indian culture and tradition. A wide variety of metals are used in the making of these handicrafts. Usage of inlay, metal casting, carving, applique and other specialized techniques form a regular part of the Indian metal handicraft industry. Metal articles require heavy working and with increasing usage of advanced mechanical production methods, the quality of these products has improved considerably. Gold and silver are generally preferred in the fabrication of jewelry, while less precious metals like bronze and copper are used in the making of Indian metal handicrafts.

EPNS & Metal Handicrafts have always been popular and the varying attractive colours and textures of metals presented wide possibilities. Metal handicrafts include candle holders, wall hangings, sculptures, water pitchers, bell metal works and many more similar items. Metal sculptures were being produced on a large scale by the Indus valley civilization. Bronze coins were used by the ancients to channel the divine energy, while metal pots remain another popular category of products from the earliest times. Metal crafts include jewelry, belts, pillars, crowns, decorative pieces, etc. Another interesting aspect is the western influence which is clearly visible in the development of the EPNS & metal handicrafts in India.

These handicrafts are being sold at record breaking volumes and are now in huge demand in the West. Moradabad, Jaipur and Delhi are established centers for manufacturers of metal handicrafts. Lucknow, Varanasi, Hyderabad, Bihar are other places in India where metal handicrafts are being made. Moradabad is synonymous with metal work of the highest calibre. Kashmir, Bihar, West Bengal, Assam, Orissa, Tamil Nadu and Kerala are some of the regions where beautiful metalwares are produced.

Electroplating of the nickel silver items results in EPNS, which is in turn coated with metal using electric currents. ENPS handicrafts include picture frames, jewelry boxes, ornaments, kitchenware, household utensils, personal use items, home accessories, etc. ENPS is used in the making of a variety of handicrafts which characteristically exhibit high strength and durability. The attractive finish of these handicrafts lends them a bright and gleaming appearance and high value in trade. Iron, brass and bronze and other metals are also used in the making of the EPNS handicraft wares.
