Yes, so much work!
I just watched Part I of your video of the artist making the Tagmout bead. Wonderful. And I feel the same as Ingrid. I hope there is a part two. Thanks for posting.
Hi Charlotte, I just heard back from Marjorie. She assumes the bead is from Himachal Pradesh because although the granulation is very similar to that done in Yemen, the design and the shape are not Yemeni. She is checking with her contact in Yemen and will let me know if he differs.
Dear Charlotte, it was so sweet of you to offer this additional information and the link. I really appreciate it. They do look almost identical to the ebay bead identified as Yemeni - except that the ones on etsy look to have slightly larger collars. I think I'll send the picture of "my" bead to Marjorie Ransom who is so knowledgeable about Yemeni work and maybe she'll have time to provide some insight. If she does, I'll post it here.
Here is a link to the listing - I hope that it is ok to post it?
Dear Anjali, I have just spotted this necklace on Etsy - the seller has identified them as Himachal Pradesh beads, just to add to the mystery.
I also spotted your bead on ebay and was watching it although I did not bid on it. It is a curious bead.
Peter, I'm so surprised no one bid or was even watching this bead?! Here is another view of it, also from ebay. I bought it for under one USD. Maybe everyone is in the souk and enjoying being immersed in the gorgeousness of innumerable objects there. :>)
This is a gorgeous piece. I can only imagine how the entire necklace must have looked like.... Congratulations. Peter
Silver over copper. 19 x 21 mm. Photo from ebay. I'm curious to see it "in person" when it arrives.
