Why We Love This

Yemeni necklace with silver globe beads and yellow imitation amber cubes, made by blending metal and then working the thin sheets by hand. Yemeni silversmiths were Jewish, and their work influenced jewelry in much of the Arab and North African regions. Beads, range from 10 mm to 26 mm.

About Africa Direct

Africa Direct, Inc. is owned by Elizabeth Bennett and Sara Luther. African art, trade beads and ethnic jewelry are both business and passion for Sara and me. We started buying African art twenty years ago as gifts for our children, four of whom are adopted and are African-American. We had been active in anti-apartheid politics for some time.
