Of Fire and Gold
By Ines Fressynet

<p>For this new episode of our <a href="http://www.livingit.euronews.com/2017/09/29/playing-with-the-backgammon-mastermind-alexandra-llewellyn"><strong>Savoir-Faire series</strong></a>, we head to Portugal and the city of Porto. We meet <a href="http://lilianaguerreiro.com/"><strong>Liliana Guerreiro</strong></a>, a contemporary jewellery designer who is putting back into fashion a thousand-year-old technique.</p> <p>A report that takes us 75 kilometers further north to Viana do Castelo, where a troupe of traditional dancers prepared us a surprise welcome. Dressed in folk costumes and covered with solid gold pieces of jewellery, they perform a bespoke show for our camera and quickly attract a crowd of curious passersby.</p> <p><blockquote class="instagram-media" data-instgrm-permalink="https://www.instagram.com/p/BbWrsYlnssE/" data-instgrm-version="8" style=" background:#FFF; border:0; border-radius:3px; box-shadow:0 0 1px 0 rgba(0,0,0,0.5),0 1px 10px 0 rgba(0,0,0,0.15); margin: 1px; max-width:658px; padding:0; width:99.375%; width:-webkit-calc(100% - 2px); width:calc(100% - 2px);"><div style="padding:8px;"> <div style=" background:#F8F8F8; line-height:0; margin-top:40px; padding:28.194444444444443% 0; text-align:center; width:100%;"> <div style=" background:url(data:image/png;base64,iVBORw0KGgoAAAANSUhEUgAAACwAAAAsCAMAAAApWqozAAAABGdBTUEAALGPC/xhBQAAAAFzUkdCAK7OHOkAAAAMUExURczMzPf399fX1+bm5mzY9AMAAADiSURBVDjLvZXbEsMgCES5/P8/t9FuRVCRmU73JWlzosgSIIZURCjo/ad+EQJJB4Hv8BFt+IDpQoCx1wjOSBFhh2XssxEIYn3ulI/6MNReE07UIWJEv8UEOWDS88LY97kqyTliJKKtuYBbruAyVh5wOHiXmpi5we58Ek028czwyuQdLKPG1Bkb4NnM+VeAnfHqn1k4+GPT6uGQcvu2h2OVuIf/gWUFyy8OWEpdyZSa3aVCqpVoVvzZZ2VTnn2wU8qzVjDDetO90GSy9mVLqtgYSy231MxrY6I2gGqjrTY0L8fxCxfCBbhWrsYYAAAAAElFTkSuQmCC); display:block; height:44px; margin:0 auto -44px; position:relative; top:-22px; width:44px;"></div></div><p style=" color:#c9c8cd; font-family:Arial,sans-serif; font-size:14px; line-height:17px; margin-bottom:0; margin-top:8px; overflow:hidden; padding:8px 0 7px; text-align:center; text-overflow:ellipsis; white-space:nowrap;"><a href="https://www.instagram.com/p/BbWrsYlnssE/" style=" color:#c9c8cd; font-family:Arial,sans-serif; font-size:14px; font-style:normal; font-weight:normal; line-height:17px; text-decoration:none;" target="_blank">Une publication partagée par Living It (@_living.it)</a> le <time style=" font-family:Arial,sans-serif; font-size:14px; line-height:17px;" datetime="2017-11-11T12:13:08+00:00">11 Nov. 2017 à 4 :13 <span class="caps">PST</span></time></p></div></blockquote><br /> <script async defer src="//platform.instagram.com/en_US/embeds.js"></script></p> <p>Not far from there, we discover the workshop where jewels by Liliana Guerreiro are made. A work done entirely by hand by two brothers, among the last to possess this know-how. After them, the line of 4 generations of goldsmith ends.</p> <p>In her first and new boutique, the designer unveils the ‘Elementos’ necklace which recently won the prize for the ‘best piece of jewelry’ at the Inhorgenta international fair in Munich.</p> <p>Press play to discover this story, an original Living it creation in partnership with <a href="https://albion-prod.com/"><strong>Albion Productions</strong></a>.</p>
