Jane Diaz collaborates with Nepalese silversmiths. Nepal is a tiny country tucked away in the Himalayas between China and India. It's an exotic jewel box of shrines and temples and prayer flags, monkeys and cows roam the streets and snake charmers sit out side your door as you look at stones. And in this place they make jewelry the same way their father's fathers made it, completely by hand. From blocks of pure silver and gold they mill the metal to plates and wires and build this jewelry from scratch.
