Once again, the silver jewelry from the minorities of China never fail to amaze my brains. I mean, even the babies wear spiky headpieces and just look at that craftsmanship in the coiled necklaces! I'm always exploring, but I end up returning to the silver pieces from the minorities of China. The elaborateness of it all compared to their humble lifestyle; this is why I love ethnic jewelry.
