Traditional silver jewellery / silver smith / craft centre

Another question for this forum please if anyone can help:

During our visit last year we were able to buy some amber and silver jewellery in Liepaja ("Crafts House" which houses a variety of individual artisans/crafts people in the one centre) and in Cesis (Smithy in Cesis Castle). For our visit this year I am looking for a similar crafts centre or silver jeweller in Riga that would make traditional jewellery to order if necessary. I would prefer to support individual artisans rather than more tourist oriented bigger stores if possible, but will of course also consider jewellery stores.

Please let me know if there is such a centre in Riga, or if anyone can recommend individual artisans or stores (please send me a private message so as to not infringe TA rules).

Thank you!

when I was over there in may, I found a nice little shop at the top of aldaru iela in the old town that sold hand made jewellery by a guy called Rotkalis Gunars Berzins I think his name was... some relly nice stuff, they also had stuff by other makers, worth a look.

Hi Lorikeet_17, I think redqueeg is referring to salon "Dāre"; they sell the works of several Latvian craftsmen and have a website in English, just search for "salon Dāre" on Google :-)
