Dhokra is an ancient form of bronze-casting where beeswax is molded into a form, covered in clay and then replaced with wax to cool. The end result comes out with a signature folk-art style which defines dhokra from lost wax casting. Sasha Handicrafts has partnered their team of Dhokra artisans with beadmaking artisans who work with glass. Together, they create modern designs with a nod to the ancient ways.
