Crafts by Technique

There are hundreds and thousands of crafts e.g. jewelry products including bead jewelry, wedding jewelry, custom jewelry, fashion jewelry, tribal jewelry and other crafts such as earthenware, bowl, vase, wind chimes, china ware and pitchers etc. Crafts are made by employing different methods and techniques such as carving crafts, cross stitch, embroidery crafts, knitting and crocheting and sculptures. These techniques may also differ in different regions and countries because of their own social, cultural and religious settings and geographic backgrounds. For example, all states and provinces in India have their own design techniques and methods. Artisans working in different Indian regions utilize different techniques when making crafts and handicrafts. The areas include Arunachal Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, Goa, Jarkhand, Manipur, Assam, Gujrat, Haryana, Kerela, Meghalaya, Bihar, Delhi, Himachal Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, Mizoram, Delhi, Punjab, and Assam etc. After invention of different machineries, manual methods and techniques in crafts making are becoming obsolete day by day. Therefore, the process of craft making has become quite easy for craft manufacturers as hundreds of crafts are easily made simultaneously by using different sophisticated machineries and equipments all at once. But despite availability of modern crafts, we can never deny the significance and importance of those crafts which are made manually in many parts and regions of the world.
