An appreciation of ethnic jewellery and adornment
A very simple but rare and definitely impressive necklace. The bells are large/oversized.

Interesting! I read somewhere that some yemeni jewellery (specially anklets) where worn by women to avoid non desired encounters with visiting males at the house (so men would know when a women is approaching and could go away or change room) but I think, as Peter said, it makes more sense in the desert environment that it was used for amuletic pourposes.
This must be a very noisy one! You would always know where the owner was in the house by the noise of the bells. Is it to keep track of a child or a wife?
