Bangladesh is a nation built on the skills of craftsmanship, specifically handcrafting. There are many such skills that not only develop the economy of our country, but give it its identity. For instance, nakshi kantha, a specialised skill garnered by the many individuals of the nation, through which, clothes such as saris and quilts are given a mesmerising embroidery that is completely done using skilful hands. Similarly, skilled arts such as pottery, muslin, silk and even bamboo crafting require the delicate work of hands which has been developing and improving through the years and phases of tradition of the country.
Gold is one such entity that represents the history and culture of Bangladesh. And that is why, goldsmiths are perhaps one of the most dedicated workers of our nation, as they make every bit of their skill count. The efficiency with their hands, the minute details and the long hours they put into bringing the artistic, yet traditional designs to life are worth looking into. Thanks to these hard-working goldsmiths, you do not only wear jewellery, you wear their effort, their skill, their dedication.
Alvi Jewellers knows exactly what it means for you to wear these gold ornaments and what it means when the goldsmith creates designs for these very jewelleries. Whether they are around your neck, or hanging from your ears. Whether it is covering your wrist or resting on your fingers, every piece by Alvi Jewellers is there to elevate your natural beauty.
In order to share their experiences, Alvi Jewellers have prepared a series of five videos that look into how these goldsmiths work effortlessly with steady hands, how they use their tools to eventually turn their ideas into reality.
As someone who has little or no knowledge on how the perfection of any gold jewellery comes into existence, the experience can be overwhelming. When one sees how they execute their skills into something so delicate, it might seem ordinary at first. But once they take their time to see what is actually happening, they cannot help but be amazed at the work these goldsmiths do. Behind every movement, there is a story, and behind every placement of an element, there is a feeling of novelty that only comes when you watch their dexterity come to a flawless shape and form.
