The first thing people ask is "are you killing the water buffalo just for their horn"? The answer is NO. Water Buffaloes are an integral part of life in India. They are not hunted but are farmed to be part of the agricultural industry. When these animals die, nothing goes to waste as everything is repurposed and is government regulated.
Composition: Water Buffalo Horn with beaded screw closure.
Techniques: Artisans use hot oil to soften the hollow horns to make them more pliable in order to shape the pieces into jewelry.
Wash Care: Use a Dry Cloth. Do Not Use Water or other Liquids. Horn Jewelry can be maintained with the help of coconut or jojoba oils.
