Traditional Moroccan Jewellery
How about some beautiful traditional Moroccan wedding jewels? to go with all of those fantastic wedding blankets being sold by Emma on her great blog Good Life in Morocco.
This jewellery is traditionally made and bought for a woman as part of her dowry. In Islam the man has to give a dowry to his future wife and it is often given as spectacular crowns, necklaces, belts and bracelets that are worn on their wedding days to show how wealthy her husband is.
This jewellery comes from the deep south of Morocco, in Tiznet and is hand crafted by the fabulous Artisant Larbi Ouhibi.
Larbi follows the traditional shapes and designs but embellishes them with his own imaginative decoration. He uses silver and and to make his work really stand out from the crowd he places beads in intracate designs to make the jewellery bright and colourful.
His work is very versatille as his collection also contains work on bags and Kaftans.
