After almost of decade of attending various festivals, I am seeking to bring what I see missing. Affordable, hand-made jewelry from Morocco modeled after older antique tribal styles. Reproduction Ottoman jewelry from Turkey and harder to find, Middle Eastern tribal jewelry with real coins. I do have a few pieces from Afghanistan, Pakistan & Uzbekistan, but they are individually selected for rareness, pleasing to the eye and durability. Hamsa from around the world and tribal Judaica. And textiles like sabra silks from N. Africa, vintage & antique Ottoman scarves with hand crochet and hand beaded edging, assuit hip scarves and flamenco triangular scarves with fringe and various rose patterns from Spain. I am striving to reproduce the shuks I experienced in Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, Marrakech, Fez, and Ubud (Bali) with a mixture of pieces, including a belly dancers vintage flea market. This would have accruements for home, studio, photo shoot, &/or performance. Things like Orientalist paintings, antique lithograph prints, and vintage/antiques that reflect our aesthetic. ~Zahara Solomon, Owner

Jewelry pieces are often inspired by bold symbolism, sacred geometry, old world gentility, and the quiet beauty of the natural world. Each piece is 100% handmade with no two designs being completely alike; I hunt far and wide to select unique materials including gemstones, trade beads, organic matter, and other vintage findings that emanate an authentic, other worldly, and tactile aesthetic.
