Jewelry Shopping in India

While on tours, some travelers resent being brought to factories or warehouses to see how goods are made. Tour guides have usually made deals and receive kickbacks if anyone buys anything. I’ve never found these merchants to be overly pushy and, as an artist, I appreciate craftsmen and tend to enjoy demonstrations showing how goods are made.But I'd never seen jewelry presented like this before. Read about it (here).


  1. the faint odor of feet...hahahaha...nice...i like the jewelry but...smiles...i have been on that trip where they take you to these places...i def try to avoid some, art would be a different story...

  2. the display is key I agree, reminds me of going to some flea markets. Some people just have random stuff all over the place. Boxes,shelves, and or on a table. Just chaos.
