Tonghai County is the only ethnic Mongol settlement in Yunnan, where silversmithing has a nearly 800-year-old history. Tonghai silver ornaments mean good fortune and wealth in Han culture, and their production reflects the handicraft techniques of central China. Excellent skills have been passed from generation to generation. CGTN's Xu Jinhui visited the workshop of Master Chen Zuyao, the descendant of a silversmith family, to learn how to make a bracelet. Guess what the shape of the bracelet means.
