A story of its existence, a story of its immense pain (melting, twisting and carving), a story of turning into a beautiful piece of ornament from a shapeless raw metal.

Possibly, it must have been a pleasurable pastime activity to the early age folks which later turned into a serious business and known as a symbol of one’s prestige and power in the society.
