It began over 20 years ago. With 500 rupees (about £5) invested by his uncle, Bijendra Tamrakar set about forming his own business.
The name Tamrakar means ’shaper of copper’, a clan which is renowned for its craftsmanship and traditional skill. Bijendra trained as a silversmith from the age of 17, and once his craft was perfected he taught his two brothers Gyanendra and Dipesh.
Tamrakar is proud to offer a unique range of beautiful, fairly traded, hand-crafted solid silver jewellery which is either imported from Nepal or made here in the UK.
Bangles, bracelets, earrings and pendants
Each piece is a lovingly made one-off, with individually designed handmade solid silver settings and polished semi-precious stones. The subtleties and differences in stones, decoration and tooling give each piece its own character.
