"Alaa, I think we can explain the size of this tepelik by it being Kurdish, and worn on top of a turban rather than a fez.  Here are pictures of Kurdish ladies wearing tepeliks that are larger than their heads.  :)"

Thank you Angelo for the comment.

I am a humble collector of Libyan silver. If however you like any type of bracelets that I post , please let me know which type and I will try to find you a similar type and let you know how much it will cost you from the local market.

It will be my pleasure to be friends with you. I have a small collection mainly from Libya. I have posted most of my good pieces and am still posting any new items that I get. I hope that you will enjoy Libyan silver. I am sure that we can learn from each other about ethnic jewellery. Good luck to you .

Hi Angelo,

Itt will be my pleasure to be friends with you.  I love your eye for beauty and perfection. I am so impressed with the stunning items you have displayed.  My collection is from Ethiopia, where I have lived for many years.

I hope you will enjoy the Ethnic jewels site. Also a good thing that you know to call your items by name and ethnic family. Gr. Ingrid.
