Mark and I went to Colonial Williamsburg, Virginia this year for Christmas. We both love history and historical reenactments. I hadn’t been since I was in sixth grade, and Mark had never been, so when we were suddenly without holiday plans it was a fun, spur of the moment trip for both of us.
When we went into the silversmith’s shop, it was fascinating seeing how much was familiar. The tools and techniques are still valid for handcrafting silver. Though, nowadays if you still handcraft silver I doubt your monetary mainstay is spoons.
