An ongoing reseach by Helga about the history of metalsmithing.
"Writing a historic jewellery post is a perfect excuse for me to investigate the history of mankind. I find it fascinating to figure out how we learned as a species to make beautiful things.
Jewellery is my gateway to this mystery. In this ongoing series I take you on a journey to long-gone cultures that left us intricate silver and golden objects to learn from.
I visit exhibitions, read many books and search in dark and ancient corners of the internet for facts to write about."
