This video tells the story of two of Afghanistan's most promising young jewellers, Storai and Saeeda, students of the Turquoise Mountain Institute in Kabul.

Founded by Turquoise Mountain, a charity focused on regenerating the Old City of Kabul and reviving the Afghan crafts industry, the Turquoise Mountain Institute provides students with an intensive three year training in jewellery, wooodwork, ceramics, miniature painting & calligraphy. Successful students graduate with an internationally recognised City & Guilds accreditation, and are given support to set up craft businesses of their own.
