Belt Buckle - Bulgaria

"That's so interesting, Peter.  I like the way the wings are echoed in the clasp.  Do you know the significance of the two headed bird?  It would seem very protective, no?  Wonderful piece."

Bracelet/armlet - Saudi Arabia

"Dear Peter, all of that is so interesting!  Thank you!  Do you think any of these features could be male and female fertility symbols, or symbols of the mountains of Milhem? Since the work is originally of Yemeni design, I wonder if…"

Brass Rail Beads

"Wondering if anyone could provide some information on these beads I acquired from an African trader 8 years ago.  They remind me a bit of Yemeni mulberry/nute beads.  I think they're brass."

Yemeni Bead

"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."

Dear Anjali, You are very welcome to view my page. The photo that Ethnic Embellishments (Hillary) mentioned was the wedding necklace that I put up yesterday. So yes, it is there. I took down a lot of my photos some time ago and that was one of them. But I've put it up again for you to compare. I'm glad we found some answers for you. It's a lovely necklace.

A warm welcome to EJ, Anjali. I have only a small collection of mostly Ethiopia/Eritrea pieces, but I also love Caucasian, Central Asian and North African jewellery.
