Announcement   The Smithy of Ancient Jewelry, placed in the middle of the Cesis Castle ruins
is a unique and interesting place for anyone interested in Latvian culture
and past. One could say it’s where the past meets the present because I have spent many years in the smithy, making replicas of ancient jewelry found in 9-12th century archaeological sites. I have rediscovered the techniques and tools used by jewelers over a thousand years ago in order to make the ornaments exactly how they would have been. My work is displayed on the walls of the Smithy for the visitors to enjoy. Welcome to my silver- shining World at Etsy shop listings as well!
