These ornaments are crafted by the bhottada section of famous gond tribes of Orissa, well known for their costumes and embellishment styles. Originally, seeds of different wild fruits in the forest were used as beads with cotton thread in their necklace and earrings which over the years have been substituted by beads made from brass by the heating and beating process. By and large, bhottada women of affluent families having a special status in their community used this jewelry. In recent times, it symbolizes a more utilitarian approach in a traditional framework.
