Eber, a skilled goldsmith who has worked with gold most of his life, works alone in a small workshop. He shared stories with Pippa that illustrated how central gold is to his life. When he was young, he entered a raffle and won a gold chain with a medal of the Madonna on it. His stories illustrated the power of gold and how it can be used for good by sharing how his chain has helped him through his life. When he needed cash for school or any urgent needs, he would take his precious chain to the pawn dealer, who would lend him money until he could repay him. His chain always helped him.

For this collection, he made a gold Cacao Pod skillfully hammered with brass seeds inside that rattle like a real pod. Cacao has been a huge cash crop in the region, and the pod is a familiar sight in the markets.
