By Megan Zhang, Xu Zhengyin

Stuck at home with nothing to watch? Curious about China, but don't know where to begin? Well, we've got you covered with this brand-new video series exploring Chinese culture. All you have to do is press play.

In the small town of Siyang in Jiangsu Province in eastern China, craftsmen create art on tiny natural canvases.

While most people think nothing of peach stones and just throw them away, they are a source of inspiration for these artists. Using tiny tools, they chip away at the stones to create intricate designs.

These peach stone carvings are often worn as jewelry in China. Watch the video to see them for yourself.
