Unique Jewellery Finds - Silver and Sisal jewellery

Today I want to share another unique jewellery material that I came across during the The World Craft Council    Kaivalam  an International Craft Summit that was hosted in Chennai a few months back . It is jewellery made from sisal fiber .

                Sisal fibers ,  obtained from the  hardy Agave plant , is extracted by a retting process similar to that of linen . Mostly found in Brazil , Mexico, China , and Africa , this natural fiber is used to make ropes , twines , carpets , etc . Also used for making lovely coiled baskets ,........................................................... and now as delicate jewellery , the sisal fiber has found a new use. 

I absolutely love the delicate bracelet and earrings that I got from their stall at the crafts bazaar , and here are the pictures of the same
