India - Govin's workshop

Govin's workshop is nestled in the heart of Rajasthan. This region of north-eastern India has been renowned for its expertise in jewelry since the dawn of time. Rajasthan is a very colorful region of immense cultural wealth. It is not for nothing that it is one of the most touristic destinations in India. I met Govin in 2017, thanks to several trading friends in Europe. Everyone advised me to go see Govin and what a meeting! Govin, Muku, Eddy, and a few craftsmen fervently work silver, crimp, brush, polish. The workshop is a real Ali Baba's cave, full of a thousand semi-precious stones. No machine, apart from something to polish! All silver jewelry is handmade, from A to Z. Forget the machines, even the simplest. It is all the more incredible to see the birth of a jewel.

India - Shankar's workshop

Shankar's workshop is located in the fabulous little town of Pushkar, in the heart of Rajasthan. Shankar is a young Hindu, passionate about his work, invested family man, very stake and very active in the community. Shankar collaborates daily with other craftsmen because his workshop being very small, it does not have all the necessary tools. The jewelry creation is a little longer than with other craftsmen but the result is well worth it, to take the time! We have been working with Shankar since early 2019.

Nepal - Mahesh's workshop

Mahesh lives in the suburbs of Kathmandu, in the family house, with his parents, his wife and his 2 children. He has been making malas and pearl bracelets for 14 years! 14 years of threading pearls, with patience, gentleness and peace of mind. Mahesh is very religious, when he puts on beads he seems to be in active meditation. There emanates from this person an absolute calm, a peaceful force. Well known in his neighborhood, it is not uncommon to see one or two friends from the neighborhood come to chat and drink tea in his shop. Mahesh was introduced to me a few years ago by a Polish woman who has been a volunteer teacher in a Nepalese village for over 7 years. A great meeting.

Thailand - Fon & Lek workshop

Lek's workshop is located in northern Thailand, near the Burmese border. The Karen, tribes of the northern mountains are very skilled with their hands. The Karens work with cloth and silver. Unlike many countries they use purer silver, which is 95 to 98% silver, instead of 92,5% which is a standard. I first met Fon and Lek in Bangkok, because they go down there to shop. Believe it or not, the communication was very complicated at first, because the Thais are not that English speaking! By dint of gestures and time we have come to understand each other. I have been to northern Thailand a few times and the creativity, colors and ingenuity there is amazing.
