Turquoise, a luxury art
Have you ever heard of turquoise art? In the past, some works of art were found only in the homes of wealthy and aristocratic people, but today these arts are available to the public with the same quality and perhaps higher. This art is one of the subsets of Iranian handicrafts that is more common in Isfahan and Tehran. Of course, it can not be considered an ancient art and is less than 100 years old, however, it has already attracted the attention of many domestic and foreign tourists. It is said that he first started from Mashhad in Iran and moved to Isfahan after twenty years.
Turquoise can be placed on various objects such as plates, glasses, copper glass, etc. The production process has several stages, one of which is the creation of its infrastructure. This step is done in a gold shop. Today, in Iran, the production of these objects is common only in Isfahan and the number of specialists active in this field is very small.
1) Gold cutting step
turquoise stones are glued to the surface of the metal object on a regular basis, based on pre-determined sizes. These stones are placed next to each other so that there is no empty space between them. Sometimes, in order to avoid empty space between the stones, the stones are installed at a higher temperature (for example, 40 degrees Celsius) so that after the metal object cools, the stones stick completely to each other.
