Some jewelry workshops.
A jewelry maker’s studio in San Sebastian, Mexico.By the time we had made it back down Inle Lake in Myanmar it was late. The market was closed and all that remained of the jeweller were the tools of his trade he left behind. I never saw what type of jewelry he made and am forever curious…
A silversmith in Toledo, Spain works on jewelry design that is modified from ‘damascene’, a traditional method of decorating steel with threads of gold and silver, resulting in extremely decorative SHARP swords, back when everyone carried around swords. The truly traditional method is painstaking, requiring hours of work and quite expensive. The (slightly) cheaper modern styles use enamel and simulate the style.
