Made by Padma
Padma is 50 years old and lives with his wife and nephew’s family, whom he has taken care of since his older brother passed away. Padma’s father, now 92, is a very skilled goldsmith belonging to the Shakya goldsmith caste. People still come into Padma’s small workshop wearing pieces created by his father – a fact that fills him with pride. Padma is a very social person who loves the constant flow of people who come in to see him, mostly to chat.
