ISP: Silversmithing

Salamat Pagi (Good Morning)!

Yesterday, Sean, Jivan and I participated in our ISP (independent study project). We had the opportunity to learn about silversmithing. I made a ring with the Latin phrase: “Omnia Vincit Amor” which means Love Conquers All. I feel like is this ancient phrase combined with the traditional silversmithing reflects the city of Yogyakarta/Jogja. It is such a beautiful city that has timeworn buildings but its people are full of love. They literally share everything they have with me. Participating in silversmithing gave me a glimpse into the Indonesian people’s value of detail, art, and hard work.

 

Sampai Jumpa (See you),

Annie
