|Product Description||The craft named its after its place of origin, Bidar (now in Karnataka) has an enchanting range to cater to a wide variety of tastes and requirements. The designs are traced by hand, by the craftsmen with the help of chisels. Next, pure silver wire is hammered into the grooves of the design and the surface smoothened with the help of sand paper and files or with the help of a buffing machine. In the ultimate interesting stage, the articles are heated gently and treated with a solution of salammoniac and earth taken from old fort buildings which has the effect of making the entire surface turn jet black providing a distinct contrast to the shinning silver inlay. It is the contrast that lends Bidri a uniqueness that no other metalware could possibly claim.|
