Ethnic Jewels

An appreciation of ethnic jewellery and adornment

it was sold as Harar silver pearl, big (4.5 cm length), good silver, old (on one side a soldered break).the shell parts do not belong to this item but are from Southern Ethiopia. I was told by a member of Ethnic Jewels that this bead is Afghan, Baluch, and am quite disappointed, but want to add this info here.

I guess these beads travel, Eva. It's very beautiful and I rememeber that the price was good (I was looking at it as well :-)). 

Hope you are doing well these days.... Best wishes, betty

It seems this is a bead from  Afghanistan, Baluch, and not Ethiopian.  It was sold to me as Ethiopian by a seller who only sells African stuff. Am quite disappointed, but wanted to put it right.
