Common to South Arabia and Yemen, the mesh "labbeh" or "Kirdam" were worn wrapped around the neck or attached to the sides of the headgear hanging down as a frame to women’s chin. This particular libbeh is from the late 1800’s–early 1900. I had it restrung to be used as a necklace. This very finely made tribal labbeh has elaborate lengths of filigree and numerous dangling beads. This type of jewelry would have been part of a woman’s dowry given to the bride by her father

I have tried to find the artist who hallmarked this bracelet. Hallmark looks like a bird, but I just have not been able to find it. The bears are done in the style of Lawrence Saufkie, but it is not by him. The background in the black area is stippled instead of scratched which is an older technique, so I am dating this to about 1970 or before. Excellent condition, inner circumference is about 5 1/2" PLU a 1 3/8" gap. About 1 " wide.
The expression " cuter than a bug's ear " comes to mind ( what does a bug's ear look like anyway? ). Nice screw back ear rings probably from the 1950's or 60's. Marked sterling. Excellent condition, about 5/8" long.
Size 10, excellent condition, nice work.
Mitchell Sockyma began making jewelry in about 1972. This ring is large ( the face is about 2" tall ). Sterling silver marked HC for Hopicraft and with his turtle hallmark. Looks like pretty early work. Excellent condition size 7 1/2.
Gerald Lomeventema has won many awards for his wonderful sand cast jewelry. This bracelet is a very fine example of his work. I purchased this from Sedonawolf in 2005 for about $3,000.00. Sand cast work like this is unique since there is so much detail that is lost due to the casting process. So this is a unique piece. The turquoise is a beautiful gem # 8 mine stone mounted in a gold bezel. Hallmarked by the artist...

The natural fiber cording ends are woven together and topped on one side with a shell and on the other side with a loop...together forming a clasp...very similar construction to necklaces out of Nepal
