  • The Afghani have been crafting gold for centuries When Alexander the Great came to Afghanistan in 330 BC, his people brought many skills, one of which was working in gold; Like the Romans, centuries later, a yellow, 18 ct gold was used. But one of their techniques was to take sheet gold and work it onto hardened resin and then decorate it accordingly; These etched and gadrooned beads are their creations;
