Almost all of the people in my hometown craft silver jewelry. My parents were farmers, but my siblings and I helped our neighbors make jewelry to raise money for our tuition and food. By the time I was in the sixth grade, I was able to create pieces myself. After getting married, we didn't have money left since we spent it on the wedding and blessing our parents' homes. We both worked hard making jewelry and saving the money we earned until we finally had enough to start on our own. My husband, children and five workers help me. Like other traditional silversmiths, we use manual tools like scissors, a stove, tweezers, solder and more. I use sterling silver, gold, and gemstones.' What is Worldstock?
