Pippa Small Travels to India

I am very proud to present a short film made by my talented nephews, 17-year-old twins, Art and Theo, who travelled to India with my twins and I last month. I wanted to see India through their eyes as first-time visitors to this extraordinary country and to see the process of seeking and choosing stones and the making of the jewellery.

I have been travelling to India since I was a teenager and it has become my second home, I love it for its magic and madness. The film shows a little of the world I inhabit and the making of a Tibetan gold ring.

We made our way to Jaipur and bundled into Tuk Tuk’s in the Rajasthani heat and began our Indian adventure…

Pippa Small Travels to Bolivia

As we meandered down the winding track I looked out across the mountain range. Llamas lined the route as low hanging clouds billowed beneath us and Eagles circled overhead. With every twist and turn of the path, the landscape changed slightly. Treeless plains were soon replaced by a carpet of large-leafed tropical ferns as we descended into the mine. Located in the lush foothills of the Andes, the Cotopata is a small cooperative with about 30 miners. With no direct road to it, the miners follow the narrow track leading down from the top of the hills, passing over streams and waterfalls, with their equipment on their backs, to the base where the Gold processing occurs.
