Silversmithing in Dharmsala

During our month away from Chandigarh we had a great trip into the mountains of Himachal. We had 2 great weeks at Jagatram Niwas guesthouse in Upper Bhagsu. Here are the results of my "jewelery camp" (silversmithing class).
Bracelets in silver with pearls and Tibetan turquoise.
One ringy dingy, two ringy dingy, three ringy dingy...more turquoise and pearls.
"Tuk tuk pendant...
Pendants, pendant, pendants...oxidized, inlayed and stone work. The Black stone pendant is by Deep. I enjoyed the class so much I made him take it as well. Its a lot of sitting. He took the first class and took over the rest of his time.
A bracelet by Deep for Ananya with coral and garnets. Inlay pendants by me for the kids.
