Peule/Fulani earrings

the photo illustration comes from the "Belgravia library" so i hope i may show it with this attribution.

the earrings are very fragile thin gilt metal looking like whipped cream! in different sizes, and each pair has its own custom made box of stiff hide. 

They will soon be on my new website.

Another ebay mystery piece

This is a recent posting on ebay -- it is called a Nigerian water jug pendant. I have been unable to locate any reference at all to it online. Does anybody have any ideas? Looks a little like a tcherot to me.

Confused about Kabyle

I know this very expensive piece from ebay is Kabyle but I am confused about the shape--  is this an isolated pendant or was it worn as part of a grouping of pendants in a headdress or some other piece of jewelry? It is the central piece of a necklace with modest branch coral and does not bear any enamel on the back. Is it old new, single or part of a larger piece, reworked?…
