Nomadic Tibetan traditionally store their wealth in jewelry and ornaments, easily transported and handed down from generation to generation. Ornaments and stones have deep religious and cultural significance. Gold, silver, coral, turquoise, ancient dzi bead necklaces, amber necklaces and large Ghau amulets made of gold and silver are worn. |
Another image out of Africa that is just stunning to me. She is a Krobo girl. The Krobo people are famous for making the most beautiful beads from recycled, pulverized glass (soda bottles). I'm always on the hunt for antique, African, trade beads, so I have a lot of fave pics of these people. Look at her hair! That's EXTREMELY reminiscent of ancient Egyptian hair styles! Don't ya think?
