Dagestan bracelets 2

"Does anyone remember the guy (italian from the States?) who showed a large collection of Daghestani bracelets a few years ago on this site. I believe he later removed them."

19th century Balkan chain bracelet

"Hi Howah! Are you still out there? Well, it`s taken me a while to find anything like this that my pocket could cope with (I swear my pocket has Invisible holes!). I still am unable to transfer a photo but will continue to find a way to do so. But…"

My jewels now

"@ Angelo. Must be about 15 years ago that I was in Puglia and Brindisi. I went for a holiday to see what it was like. And yes, I enjoyed it greatly. So different from the North. I prefer the people in the South. I was also in Brindisi 53 years ago…"

My jewels now

"Angelo, I have visited Lecce. I spent a little time once in Cisternino. It would be great to return but usually my time Spring to Autumn must be spent in Bulgaria. However....... ......and had my bag snatched in Brindisi!"

"Wow, I`ve just looked you up online, Angelo. Now I`m super-overawed. I may never be able to have a sensible conversation with you again! .....love Ostuni but especially Lecce....."

????? 4 feet long

"I go in two directions for this - Indian or Mexican. Mexican wedding necklaces can be really long. But I reckon it feels more Indian. Obviously just guessing. I`ve just checked out the stash of Indian beads I have and none of them look like the ones…"

Tajik necklaces

"Betty, for myself "Yes, please!" Ingrid, thanks for your warm generosity. Hells bells, we all need a bit of light relief in the face of seemingly global catastrophe. Poor Angelo, looks like he`ll be fingerless at the end of all this. But…"

Tajik necklaces

Sindhi Makara Bracelet?

"Fascinating. I am still wondering if the different scale of patterning from most similar Sindhi pieces I`ve seen points to anything. Whatever, I love it!"
Feb 1, 2016
Frankie Carter commented on Kim's blog post Is this Amber?
"Amber can be crackled but not like that. For sure your beads are an old plastic of some kind Out of interest you might like to check out the tests for amber that can be found online."

Hi Frankie,

Thanks for the comment on the Kuchi necklace. I bought it from an Afghan whose family members have been in the jewellery business for several generations in the northern region of Afghanistan. I agree it is quite unlike the Kuchi ornaments one sees these days and it would be interesting to find out if similar pieces exist.

Frankie, I love your collection, I also love your sense of humour.

Thank you for being my friend.  Fauzi must be something else if he is better than that necklace of the khamsas.......................

Hi Frankie,

Yes, I am from Marseille, (well I spent there most of my youth) and I return there quite regularly...I love the old place and the surrounding countryside and its wonderful history, rich in all sorts.....I followed with great interest your  hilarious "misadventures" with the unfortunate Tibetan bracelet ! (I think I said somewhere that I liked it a lot in spite of the attacks from every quarters it has been subjected to............). I think you've beaten the VIEWING  records...........Well Done (it was worth every penny  if only for  this!  Am sure that the British   crown jewels   never received so much interest from such varied quarters!) . Well done and enjoy it. (I cant wait for you to post the one you are expecting..........Will you be brave enough? I am not sure I would be........you never know how the third world war will be triggered!......... )

Am sorry I delayed in answering, I must have forgotten, no excuse really.

Chantal

On The Subject of Loubane. I would like to know more.....

Posted on January 6, 2015 at 23:09 4 Comments

Currently there are two loubane "amber" necklaces up for auction on eBay - see items no.111471211129 and 111471215504 by the same seller. I understand loubane to be a translation of the english gum arabic, which is derived from the resin of two variants of acacia tree, and which has many and varied uses in industry and as a constituent in comestibles.

Is anyone able to tell me if the description loubane is ever applied to any other resin or even types of plastic or phenolic…
