It has been an inspiring and rewarding journey being able to fulfil my wish of visiting the Himalayas in 2023.
The harsh conditions, breathtaking vistas and vast landscapes made travelling by motorcycle (for the first time) and trekking an enthralling and sometimes exhausting experience.
Basing myself in Ladakh’s capital city Leh for a couple of months I became acquainted with some of the local shop keepers selling unique hand made crafts which inspired me to embark on a journey of bringing authentic pieces from this part of the world to Australia.
Every piece is hand picked from the source dealing only directly with family businesses and artisans with an ethos of being personally connected with the product from end to end.
Being hand crafted, no two pieces are the same and you have my personal guarantee that you won’t find another exactly the same or your money back.
I wish to continue back to the Himalayas each year periodically in order to continue promoting and expanding the range of these quality hand crafts.

'I love this ring, it never leaves my finger.
The fact it was designed and made this year up the road from the Dalai Lama's residence was the icing on the cake!'

'I love the journey my rings have been through to get to me.
As a designer and metalsmith for my business Smith and Poet,
I also appreciate the craftsmanship and unique style of the pieces that belong to Ben's curation.'
