Ethnic Jewels

An appreciation of ethnic jewellery and adornment

Glorious Tuareg woman from the Kel Ahaggar Algeria wearing a similar pendant to this new aquisition. PM me if interested. The lady is Assine Ult Yemma. She was considered the Queen of the desert, She was a poetess and messenger of peace between feuding clans of Tamasheq. Two quotes from her poetry:

“Water itself whispers ‘I love you’ as it touches our lips with the lightest of kisses."

“What’s the point of these veils under which you hide yourself – I shrug them aside just as the sun shrugs off the clouds; your real thoughts come always from your heart and in your breath.”
