Desert Silver


This book is all about jewellery from the Middle East and North Africa. These objects of adornment are not just beautiful, but often carry a hidden meaning. Jewellery plays a subtle role in everyday society as communicator, messenger, protector and bank account: understanding jewellery reveals these messages.

Desert Silver introduces the historical, social, economic and religious background of this traditional jewellery, embarking on a colourful journey from the steppes of Central Asia to the seaside trade ports of the Maghreb.
