Jewelry Techniques of West Africa DVDCheminée, Mathhieu
Jewelry Techniques of West Africa is a two-hour video presentation which takes us into contemporary workshops in senegal, Guinea and other countries of West Africa where we see master craftsmen forging, making chains and creating delicate filigree. In an innovative approach, the video uses very little voice-over instruction, relying instead on the time-honored methods of the African tradition, where apprentices observe silently until the techniques are deeply understood. In addition to chapters on tools, forging, chains and filigree, this video includes a section in which Matthieu Cheminée, the author and filmmaker, describes some of the basic procedures used, making this video practical for working jewelers as well as fascinating for anyone interested in these ancient techniques.
