HANDMADE SILVER JEWELRY

Traditional Tibetan ornaments.
The art of silver handicraft spread in Tibet during the 15th century. The silversmiths in Shegar claim that their ancestors learned their craft from a Nepalese craftsman who married with one of their local women. Today there are seven silversmiths in Shegar making products. They have
received training from international designers to broaden their range of products.

TOYS

Dropenling’s toys are inspired by images of real
and mythical animals in Tibetan paintings, carpets
and sculptures. The toys are carefully hand made
by Tibetan women in Lhasa and in mountainous
