Indian Lakh Fashion Jewelry :
How Indian Lakh Costume Jewelry of Rajasthan is Made:
We have seen Indian costume jewels many times in Bollywood films and paintings depicting Indian lifestyle and fantasy. Traditional Indian jewelry called Lakh jewelry. Many pieces like these exotic Lakh Necklace above have a unique look to them and would easily compliment current trends in western dress. This traditional handcrafted ethnic jewelry from West Rajasthan in India is made in time honored fashion by ancient methods passed down by generations of jewelry makers. This is a rural jewelry art which has not received much publicity.
Traditional Handcrafted Ethnic Jewelry from India :
India is famous for traditional handcrafted ethnic jewelry. There are different types of ethnic jewelry such as ‘Kundan’ (where gold foil is used in the setting), ‘Jadoo’ (stone setting), ‘Meena’ (enameling) and ‘Lakh Jewelry’ (wax filled jewelry ). A combination of one or more of these types can also be used to produce highly individual unusual pieces.
Lakh (Wax) Jewelry :
Lakh jewelry comes from the princely city of Bikaner in the Indian state of Rajasthan. It is situated in West Rajasthan in the heart of the Thar desert. The main occupation there is the manufacturing of handicrafts, furniture and jewelry.
Stages of Making Lakh Jewelry :
This type of jewelry is normally referred to as ‘ Lakh Jewelry’ but in fact it is really ‘Lakh Filled Jewelry’, as lakh or wax is filled in the hollow silver foil piece to give it strength.
Designs/Dies :
The design of the jewelry is first drawn and given to the die maker. A solid brass metal die is made by etching out the design on top of the die. A separate die is made for the front and one for the reverse of the jewelry piece.
Imprinting/Stamping- Lakh Jewelry :
A thin piece of silver foil is placed over the metal die. The silver foil is gently hammered over the die using a rubber headed mallet to transfer the design of the die to the silver foil and is called imprinting. The same is done with the reverse side die. Then two pieces of imprinted silver foil are fitted together to form a delicate hollow silver shell.
Enameling - Lakh Jewelry :
The basic enamel color is painted on the whole shell. It is then fired in a tiny cylindered kiln for the enamel to set permanently. There are mainly 9 colors of enamel used. These are white, golden, pink, blue parrot green, red, bottle green, turquoise, orange and black. Shades of these colors are also made. The shell is delicate at this stage.
Lakh (Wax) Filling - Lakh Jewelry :
To protect and help in filling the silver shell with lakh it is covered with clay mud. When the clay mud dries it is placed over a hot plate/sand. The clay gets heated and then lakh (wax) in the form of needle straws are slowly inserted into the hollow silver shell which is protected by the clay mud. Once filled the silver shell gets strength.

Cleaning - Lakh Jewelry :
The protective clay mud is removed and the whole piece is washed and cleaned using soap with a brush until the pieces gives a lustrous shine.
Gold Polishing - Lakh Jewelry :
Each cleaned/shining piece is then gold polished at places where the base enamel is not there. These are usually the design outlines/borders.
Finishing - Lakh Jewelry :
The final finishing is done by touching up where the gold polish/enamel is distorted.
Rhinestones and Bead Application - Lakh Jewelry :
Rhinestones are pressed into the silver foil and set in the wax at the required places as per the designs. The final work involves attaching beads and findings to complete the jewelry.
It takes 9 different craftsmen to produce each piece of jewelry. Many small pieces are joined together to get one complete earring/necklace/pendent. From start to finish it takes up to 15 man hours to complete one piece of medium size earrings, pendant or necklace. The final piece is absolutely ‘Unique Fashion Jewelry’.

Homage to a tintype version 2

Homage to a tintype version 2

An experiment to see if how to adapt the tintype aesthetic for use with a trusty plastic fantastic. Stage one was seeing how to print an image from a plastic fantastic negative onto a copper sheet.
Cleaning the plate with white spirit as that was all I had in the cupboard kinda works, but not particularly brilliantly, lightly sanding the plate to give it a key was kinda just scratchy, then back to cleaning the plate.
Plate not painted like the other plates to see whether the black background is necessary for the image to stand out of the plate.
Painted on photographic emulsion. Learned halfway through coating the first batch of plates that as you have to melt the emulsion if you don't sit the tray with the liquid emulsion in it in a water bath whilst coating it very quickly reverts back to its more solid state..... and it's a bugger to paint on in that very lumpy state....
Plate left to dry in a filing cabinet drawer in the darkroom overnight.
Plate exposed for 12 seconds to the negative.
Plate developed in Ilford warm tone developer for quite a while, ended up taking about 5 minutes.
Plate put in lford stop bath for 1 minute.
Emulsion layer still fully intact at this point!
Plate put in Ilford fixer for oh at least 15 seconds before started to disintegrate, not as badly as the painted ones but still not good....
Plate very quickly lifted out of the fix solution....
Swore quite profusely, for quite a long time....
Plate placed in water in bathroom sink, still swearing.....
emulsion layer started to lift off the plate after a few minutes...
Plate very quickly lifted out of the sink....
Profuse swearing started again, for quite a long time....
Plate left to dry overnight...
Sweepstake entered into over how long image will remain on plate due to lack of proper fixing...

The image is a group of donkeys on the beach at Weston-Super-Mare having their lunch of yummy hay. I apparently am too big to be able to ride the donkeys so I consoled myself with ice-cream instead...
