Full Title: Silver Speaks: Traditional Jewelry of the Middle East. By Joyce Diamanti. Photography by Robert K Liu, PhD.
This book documents the Washington, D.C. Bead Museum’s 2002-03 exhibit, Silver Speaks: Traditional Jewelry of the Middle East. This book extends the show’s reach and enhances understanding of the rich cross-cultural heritage represented in these age-old forms of personal adornment. More than 50 photographs by Dr. Robert K. Liu, coeditor of Ornament magazine, show the exquisite detail, beauty and diversity of traditional jewelry from Oman, Yemen, Saudi Arabia, Syria and Egypt. Author Joyce Diamant tells the story of the women who wore this jewelry and the men who made it. In surveying local and regional jewelry traditions, she examines the many exotic influences that have impacted and shaped personal adornment in this crossroads of continents and cultures. Dr. Liu writes about tools, materials and techniques used by Middle Eastern silversmiths and examines recurring shapes and patterns in traditional silver jewelry and the meanings of these motifs.
