MEENAKARI

Meenakari, also called enamelling, is the art of decorating a metal surface by fusing mineral substances on it. Meenakari was introduced into India by the Mughals. The process is often applied to kundan—articles of jewellery studded with gemstones set with a layer of gold foil between the stone and the mount on one side, while the reverse is lavishly enamelled using the meena technique. A wide variety of metals is used for Meenakari designing, including brass, copper, silver and gold. Meenakari craft combines kundan jadai work and meenakari with marble is practiced by the Jangid community in Kemla, a small village situated about a hundred kilometers from Jaipur, Rajasthan.
