Tiskiwin translation

The fibule shown opposite represents the image of the Earth Mother (Great Goddess) with the head of a frog.

At the centre of the design the pubic triangle is represented, surrounded by stormy water and snow. This depiction is a representation of the fecundity and regeneration of her descendants.

This imagery should be considered to be the deepest awareness and belief of the population of the Saharan Regions where sexual awareness is not considered to be from outside influence,…

Skin is the boundary between the inner world of the mind and the outer world of nature: what anthropologists call a liminal zone. Body adornment (jewelry, clothing, art, etc.) can be seen as an attempt to mediate this boundary and project some of that inner world outward.   Thank you  Sienna for this quote

Amazon and Truus Daalder's *Ethnic Jewellery and Adornment*

A few days ago I posted a block here, full of excitement, about a reduced price for my wife Truus's book at And yes, they did lower the price on that day - but ONLY for a day. The next day we were back at what is in effect US$150, Amazon's "normal" price (which is, itself, very reasonable). I was particularly grateful when our friend (here and on Facebook) Annie Boehm commented about the reduced price (which was US$141+) on FB: "For those of you who don't already have this… Continue

Hi All.

I am looking into creating an online meeting place ( hangout! ) via Google plus.

We can arrange to use the space to video chat regarding topics related to Ethnic jewellery.....

Initially this may be a monthly hosted group maybe to discuss further a piece here on the site, or a wider topic.

We could all propose and choose the subject matter list and dates to host discussions.

To do this we will need to have accounts on google plus. This is an invite…

To those interested in buying my wife Truus Daalder's *Ethnic Jewellery and Adornment*

Several members of "Ethnic Jewels" have bought copies of my wife Truus Daalder's *Ethnic Jewellery and Adornment*, which I am helping her to sell. For those wishing to know more, a few comments. We now have only a very limited number of copies left for direct sale from us. Unfortunately we cannot, for a single copy, compete against outside Australia. Amazon sells the book at a very reasonable price - usually around USD$150, although currently it is just over $141, which represents… Continue

Some Information About Amber And Copal

Dear Bead Friends,


I have read through the dialogue pertaining to a strand of amber beads.  It is a curious situation, that these beads were found in Burma--and yet they are not clearly Burmese amber nor Baltic amber.  It is also quite unlikely that they are copal.  Since I can only see a portion of the strand in the photograph posted, I am not confident that I can provide an answer that is dependable.  I’d like to add some general information…

Hi everyone,

I have added a marketplace feature to the site........

Many of us have things to sell, or things we would like to source, the previous forum/blog/picture system is a little incoherant for this purpose so I thought we would try this method!


Please only offer relevant items.

The ethnic jewels forum and…
