After a fruitless search for a silversmith and studio in Beijing, Liz has found one in Mexico City. So for three hours on Wednesdays she is back into designing and making jewellery. Necklaces, rings, earrings... and cufflinks for me. They're lovely, unique things, beautifully designed and fashioned.
Mexico is, interestingly, the world's largest silver producer (17% in 2010). Its mines have attracted prospectors and desperadoes since the Spanish conquest, including Cornishmen in the 19th Century. Nice too see someone else from Cornwall carrying on the tradition.
