About Thewa Art: Thewa is the ancient Moghul Art form fusing 23 karat gold on brilliantly coloured glass. This endangered, heritage craft is currently practiced within only one family in Pratapgargh, India. Revivalist Roopa Vohra’s storyboards and jewellery explain, display and make this beautiful dying art form accessible to all while simultaneously adapting some of the designs to her specific talent.
