The Angel to Angel Art of Silver is a very striking building from the outside. We went to the shop Ubud, but I think they other shops around Bali too. This is technically a silversmith workshop and retail shop but from the outside, it looks like a royal palace. The beautiful red brick tiled building has these stunning white sculptures of these cute frogs, beautiful women, and the beautiful flowing swirls. It’s unique and stands out from the surroundings.
It was like being back at college!
We were given a tour of the workshops below the retail shop, and they use a lot of the same equipment I used in college to make my silver jewellery. It was great to see the same techniques still being used today. These jewellers have some real skills, and that was confirmed when we went into the shop.
Shop! is such the wrong term for this wonderland of Silver jewellery, it felt like we were walking into an emporium of elaborate sculptures and jewellery items. They had a massive range of Western and traditional Balinese style pieces, I wanted about half of what was there, it was just so beautiful and excellently made if only I had a lot of money.
