Afghan silver and niello bracelet

"Beautiful piece, Marc. You certainly have an eye for the best examples:)). This may well have been made by a Hazaran jeweller since they were well known for their niello work.... little birds on hair clips, for example."

"Thank you very much Eva. @Ingrid I am sorry I missed your comment. As Eva says the Hazara is a ethnic group living in Afghanistan and neighbouring countris. I must say that quite often I fin it difficult to differentiate it from other groups."
