Nea Marin

Nea Marin e un bijutier din Alexandria, care pune preț pe meseria învățată din bătrâni. O parte din uneltele sale au fost folosite lde trei generații de meșteri, la rând. L-am cunoscut în Pantelimon, așezat ca un yogin, înconjurat de inele, brățări și ustensile. De când soția a decedat, domnul Marin se străduiește să se gospodărească singur, uneori mai merge la târgul meșteșugarilor din Cluj, sau e vizitat de copiii lui.

Mr Marin is a jeweler from Alexandria, Romania, we met in Pantelimon neighborhood. He learned his trade when he was little, and part of his tools have reached the third generation of usage. He says that if it had not been for this trade he would probably be on social support, lacking a purpose or sense of direction in life. Since his wife passed away, a few years ago, he's been coming to work on the street, greeting passers by with finely detailed rings and a rusty voice. Sometimes he goes to Cluj for the gathering of craftsmen, and every now and then his children come by to visit.
