Tribal Beats

Beautiful blogger Kel at Silver Peacock requested I post some of my jewellery collection so I'm starting with my silver tribal pieces.

From the first time I encountered the Lambani gypsies on a trip to India I was fascinated by their unique style, this nomadic tribe make the most beautiful jewellery out of any scrap metal they find. Whenever I visit a rural market I head straight to see what they're selling.

 
 

These are some of my favourite pieces. Turquoise is my birthstone.
A choker made from old rupee coins.

This can also be worn as a belt, the links are made from recycled spoon handles.

  2. I love the ankle bangles and toe rings. I never wear jewellery on my feet but this just looks so fresh and gorgeous! I love your eye-popping statement pieces, too.

  4. Those ankle bangles are just utterly beautiful. I wear a jade bracelet from California round my ankle but sometimes find it restricts what shoes etc. I wear. And the statement necklaces are almost works of art. Beautiful and green as well. ( Whoever does your mani/ pedis is great - I can't look at my own feet let alone show them to the world :) ) x

  7. I love the ankle bangles, definitely my favourite as they are so unusual! Jewellery made from recycled spoons too - amazing! They just totally outshine most the jewellery you get at home.

  9. Thanks all!
    Glad you like some of my tribal pieces. I love my anklets but they do restrict your choice of footwear, definately no good with gladiators or anything with an ankle strap.
    Roo Paprika - I do my own pedicures and I'll share a tip, get some of Avon's "Pedi-Pads", the most awesome (and cheapest) invention ever for rough-looking trotters!
