The best description of Thewa is:
According to historical records, Rajputi Thewa jewellery originated in the Pratapgarh district of Rajasthan India and dates back to the Mughal age. Thewa art evolved under the patronage of Maharawat Samant Singh, the king of the Pratapgarh district of Rajasthan.
The Rajput dynasties ruled between the 7th and 19th centuries and brought with them skilled craftsmen who introduced some exquisite and intricate gold jewellery designs, such as Theva Kala jewellery to Indian culture.
Originating from Rajasthan, Rajputana gold jewellery is one of the most exquisite styles of jewellery in India. The Rajputana style of jewellery is a reflection of its royal heritage and rich culture and remains an integral part of Rajasthani culture even today.
Thewa is a Rajasthani word that means “setting” and traditional Rajputi Thewa art involves fusing 23-carat gold with multi-coloured glass treated with a special process to create a glittering effect that highlights the intricate gold work used in Thewa gold jewellery.
Engraved filigreed gold sheets are fused on the glass to create these masterpieces, a craft that requires patient handling and mastering of the technique, as the gold sheets used are of the highest purity.
Thewa art pulsates with life, caught seemingly in movement by the motifs used on the Thewa Kala jewelry which depicts the culture, heritage, and tales of romance and valour of Rajasthan with nature and happiness being the overriding themes.
The patterns either carry local narratives of hunting expeditions in miniature foliage and streams, animals and birds, or they depict the nature of mythological tales of Radha Krishna, Sri Ram, or Hanumanji.
Designing original Thewa art jewellery is not easy as Thewa art involves fine craftsmanship and the process of crafting a Thewa jewellery set is detailed, time-consuming and intricate, taking up to a month to complete each piece.
Unlike other forms of jewellery, the actual value or price of Thewa jewellery lies in the skill and the time that goes into handcrafting each incredible Thewa set rather than the intrinsic value of gold.
The process of making Thewa work jewellery starts with smashing fragments of terracotta and combining it with certain chemicals and oils to form a thick lac-resin paste. It is then spread on a wooden base by slightly warming the lac-resin compound and pressing a 23-carat gold sheet of 40 gauge thickness called Thewa Ki Patti, into it.
When the plate is warmed, the metal is embedded into the lac. Tools such as Hummaney (forceps), Katya (cutter), and Tankale (to cut out the jaali) are then used to etch and precisely cut out the pattern on the gold foil.
This base is used to set the mixture and a free hand design is etched on it by the goldsmith. The coloured glass is used as the base of the jewellery as a unit of the gold sheet.
Finally, the Thewa jewellery set is embellished with precious and semi-precious gemstones before completing the design. Black paint is spread over the gold sheet to highlights the Thewa jewellery design so it becomes clearly visible for further detailed work with fine tools.
The craftsman removes the excess gold, creating a design often drawn from Hindu mythology, Mughal court scenes, historical events, or motifs representing flora and fauna. A Thewa set is usually handcrafted by skilled artisans over a period of one month.
