Jewellery is an integral part of Indian culture, a facet of its social pattern with deep religious overtones. It is amazing how many of the old designs have remained unaltered through the ages.

This bead is part of the folk jewellery that is in great demand even today. By virtue of it being an independent piece it can be strung in any pattern, traditional or contemporary. Granulation is an ancient jewellery decoration process employing small solid balls of metal to ornament jewellery and objects. This round bead flattened from pole to pole is called a cushion bead. It can not form a pattern by itself unlike regular circular beads. It has to be part of a more elaborate design. The contemporary artist is constantly creating innovative and exciting designs which incorporate different shapes to become a marvellous whole. The central wide hole is lined by big and small granules giving it a split-level elevation.
