Story Behind the Art:
Rajesh does not know his real age but knows how to form wax molds, cast rings and earnings, and set gems in them. As a child, having lost his father due to malaria, Rajesh learned the delicate handcrafting trade from his grandfather. He says that he has talent to set mili-sized stones and gems in tiny surfaces of jewelry, a secret his grandfather taught him. He never uses any mechanical devices for his trade. He claims setting over 100 tiny stones in an earring in less than four hours. His son goes to school, but Rajesh teaches him the trade when he is at home on Sundays. With his earning of $77 per month and his wife earning a similar amount by tutoring underprivileged children, he is able to support his old grandparents in a small one and half bedroom ancestral home.
