Silver Jewelry & Belts
We reproduced this Bedouin Camel Chain from my antique hand-hammered original, which had adorned desert Camels for generations (where it was more customary to bejewel animals rather than women!!!!)
The necklaces exist in one-meter lengths for $225. The original was very long (and came along with a rusty old loop and bit!!), so I broke it into three; one short, one medium and one even longer than a meter. If you wish different lengths, we can charge $5 to redo the ring connectors and just charge for the length desired.
These wonderful belts are fabricated from extruded copper electrical wire; crochetted in many different patterns, either dipped in Silver or Gold or hand-painted with Enamels. They work with everything from jeans to formal-wear. Prices listed are for one to a few pieces. Please call to discuss bulk orders. We have a large selection but only one to a few in any specific color and design.

Old and Antique Silver Jewelry and Belts, Savati Silver
Since 1975, we have always been on the lookout for lovely old pieces in jewelry and kelims and other accessory items when shopping in the bazaars of Monastiraki and Kapalicarsi (Ahtens and Instanbul). A large box of these wonders was "lost" in storage after 2 of our retail shops closed, and only recently was rediscovered... some really rare pieces in Savati technique from Turkey and Georgia, a variety of silver chain belts with unusual buckles, and an array of reproduction and old Savati Silver earrings, etc.
Savati (also Savat in Turkey and Nielo in France) is a toxic old method of etching detailed designs with lead into silver with acid. A difficult technique, it is still now done - but safely - in Tiblisi and Istanbul.
