Ethnic Jewels

An appreciation of ethnic jewellery and adornment

Hello  , I am a dealer and collector of Bedouin and Yemenite ( Yemeni Jewish ) jewelry for over 20 years .

Most of my transactions were conducted online so I inadvertently ended up with a photo archive of thousands of pieces of Yemeni jewelry .

It is the largest portfolio of its kind in existence, and it has been a dream of mine to excavate some of these photos from their 700mb CD tombs and write or co write an illustrated book on the subject. 

Till then, I would love to share some of my more recent photos with you, and enjoy the magical world of ethnic jewelry you conjure in this wonderful forum ! 

Glad to be here ,,   Omar

Hello Omar!  I have purchased from you many times and most recently caught up with you on Etsy.  Nice to see you here.  Thanks for posting this beautiful photo.  I look forward to seeing more!
