The Story: Women's Interlink Foundation has provided Skills Development Training to the tribal women and youth of the villages of Bonerpukurdanga & Phuldanga in Birbhum district under the Intensive Handicraft & Tourism Cluster Project of NABARD. Training has been provided to the tribal women in skills like Kantha Embroidery, Leathercraft, Seed & Benagrass Jewelry to generate livelihood options and increase their income levels.

Humans have been decorating their bodies with the beauty of natural objects for thousands of years. Primitive man wore necklaces made from naturally found seeds, beads or stones. Today most people think of natural jewelry as shiny pieces of corals, pearls and precious or semiprecious stones, polished and set in gold or silver. Who would ever believe that some of the most unusual and striking jewelry in the world comes from plants. With the exception of amber and coconut pearls, most botanical jewelry is made from relatively inexpensive materials.

Polished wooden beads, colorful seeds and pieces of palm, bamboo and tropical hardwoods are strung on fine nylon or cotton fiber threads or gold and silver chains, producing attractive necklaces and bracelets that rival any synthetic costume jewelry. In terms of aesthetic beauty and intrinsic value, plant jewelry may rank as high as any gemstone. Exotic seed necklaces from native cultures throughout the world often come with fabulous tales about their origins and legendary uses.
