A fine pair of high quality gold bracelets from the Minangkabau, Sumatra, Indonesia

"You are right, Linda - the pieces are quite comparable. Ours too are 22 karat.  All three are characteristically made by the Minangkabau, and of very high quality both in being made of the highest quality gold that can in practice be used, and…"

"The single below in 22 K also quite old is a similar example and one I have for sale now from the collection of a client that i had sold it to about 12 to 15 years ago. "

Three beautiful sisters...

"I think Linda is pretty likely to be right to think it is from Aceh in Northern Sumatra, but in any case it is definitely Sumatran and has an Islamic background. And yes, we all agree it is a lovely piece. You are right, Edith, the Carpenter book is…"

Joost Daalder commented on Anne Marie Eleveld's blog post Tekke? how about the blue stones?
"Very informative comment, Jamey! I must admit that I had not yet across blue stones (lapis lazuli or any other) on Afghan bracelets. (Of course Turkoman jewellery does feature the odd turquoise, usually to frighten off the "evil eye".) But…"

Stopping posting before Christmas

Posted on December 21, 2011 at 20:00 2 Comments

I have suddenly realised that it is the 22nd (in Australia at any rate!), and that I have been doing a lot of posting here, with very little time for it now left, as I have a lot "on hand" (including research on English literature to complete fairly quickly). I wish to thank all those who have expressed their appreciation of my posts and private correspondence. Your support has been most heartening, and I am very grateful to those who express their appreciation for all the hard work Truus…

I think you do a very good job of making the facebook page both organized and appealing, Joost.  Thank you again for your very kind comments.

Joost, thank you!  That is very kind indeed.  Wishing you a happy and prosperous New Year.

Thanks Joost, I would love to be your friend, as an Aussie comrade.

I think you have been getting a much warmer summer than we - its been really cool here, I may as well have been in UK (but no thanks).

We are few in numbers in Aus in ethnic jewels, I wonder why?

I have to admit I have learnt so much from you all at ethnic jewels, its been a revelation to me, as really my knowledge is more about African beads, and especially the older beads.

We are off to Africa (where we lived for 10 years) and I am going bead hunting again.  There are some W.African men in Nairobi who set up in a cheap hotel and every single room (about 10) has beads/textiles/beaded items/leather/masks, and it is from them that I have acquired my knowledge and beads.  They sleep in their own rooms surrounded by their beads, and so one sits on the bed to do business!  Nice men, and I suppose only interested in what they can sell to the white woman.  I will post pictures on my return.

We live on the land and have Angus cattle, are you in the city?  Its years since I was there.  Peter used to work in Broken Hill (as the roads engineer with the DMR) and he used to travel to Adelaide on weekends.   Nice city.

Bye for now,

Ann

Hi Joost,

Thanks for the comments on the Kuchi necklace. I now have a copy of Truus' excellent book! So much to explore. I had some difficulty in finding it. By the time I had collected the Amazon tokens from Christmas, Amazon itself had run out of copies. So I then ordered it from another book seller only to find, some time later, that they too had run out. By then Amazon, had sent a message to say that it was expecting further copies in a few weeks time. So I hung on. Please do tell Truus (and your son) that it was well worth the wait.

Thank you very much, Joost! The honour is totally mine!

Hi Joost,

You have obviously read my review of your wife's book on amazon.com.  I loved her book, but registered the same criticism about the bibliography on her book as I did for "Jewellery from the Orient - Treasures from the Bir Collection" by Wolf-Dieter Seiwert.  When one can utilize "Oman Adorned- A Portrait in Silver" by Dr. Miranda Morris and Pauline Shelton, "The Disappearing Treasures of

Oman", by Avelyn Forster,  and "Omani Silver" and "Silver, the Traditional Art of Oman", both by Ruth Hawley, it is a shame to reference only  the Rajab book.

Hi Joost
I left a comment after Kim suggested the smell test for bakelite and after much rubbing and warming the bead it definitely had a very distinct strong smell. Thanks for all your input.
I have admired Milene Rusts work for a long time and discovered your book through her comment on Facebook, which I promptly bought!

Hi Joost,

You asked about Kunuz. It is slightly academic, but very readable. I would have liked more photos, but that said the information is very good. I will try to get a copy at some point. Why don't you see if a library near you can borrow a copy from another library? I did this and it was sent all the way from British Columbia for $20.00.

Becky
