"At last i know who got these beauties and honestly i am very happy that it is one of the forum members. These are always very heartwarming when you discover the unusual (for kabyle pieces i mean) and exquisite patterns once they are cleaned. I have…"

Pendant from Mahdia or Moknine

"Indeed, Edith. Here you can find a link to a museum study (I am afraid it is Spanish ....) on the jewellery worn by the Lady of Baza and the Lady of Elche, another Iberian sculpture of V c (BC). It confirms the Phoenician influence.…"

"Delicate and beautiful. The engraving at the centre reminds me a little of Tuareg work. How lucky you were to find them. Congratulations, Jose."

Massa attribution

Posted on May 18, 2014 at 10:21 16 Comments

I keep on finding once in a while some Moroccan Berber pieces attributed as being Massa. I have found though very little about these but just a brief note in Saad Al-Jadir's Kunuz stating that the style is unique and departs from those in neighbouring areas. I have also heard that there may be some phoenician influence. Any ideas?

Please find this link I have just found to a collection of Yemeni jewels the Spanish foundation Carlos Ballesta. Not extremely large but quite nice:

Book of Siwa Oasis

Posted on October 15, 2012 at 17:48 1 Comment

For those of you who have an interest and do not know it already there is a fairly new book on Siwa Oasis. It was published in 2011 by the name of "Sand and Silver. Jewellery, Costume and Life in Siwa Oasis" ISBN 978-0-9569963-0-5. Its author is Margaret Mary Vale and it was published by Kelim Press. It is soft cover.

It is not certainly a "bible" on jewellery but covers many aspects of the life in the oasis of Siwa (customs, uses, how life has changed, jewellery, materials, etc)…

Jewellery from Eastern Africa.

Posted on July 4, 2012 at 18:22 1 Comment

For those members who have an interest in jewellery from Eastern Africa or simply enjoy wonderful pictures, both of pieces and people, I would recommend this link: www.davidserra.es. The catalog on this kind of jewellery, which can be downloaded, is particularly good.
