The oldest known Swedish silver mine dates from about 1360. Having reliable sources of the metal is but one reason for the success of Sweden´s silversmiths. Another of greater importance is the high quality of their education, primarily through the Konstfack (University of Art Craft and Design). At Konstfack all the participants in the exhibition got their higher education.
