Silversmith

A street in Tangail is filled with little workshops of people working by a torch and a candlelight creating the most intricate silver jewelry, that mostly are purchased by large distributors like Aarong (part of the largest NGO in the world). The size of the workshops is deceptive, but their work speaks for themselves.
