Tribal Jewelry: Back to Our Roots
Tribal or ethnic jewelry, as some might refer to it, has long been the point of my interest. There is a certain magical feel and mystique to it as it holds the key to our humanity. Our struggles and progress are visible in jewelry just as much as in the other art forms. Tribal jewelry in particular carries that emotional profoundness that I believe is the most powerful and valuable aspect in jewelry.
Whether we are talking about the African, Native American, Indian, or any other tribes, tribal jewelry reveals things about its people and allows us to understand their world better, and ultimately ourselves.
This type of jewelry also has some of the most interesting materials, shapes and colors, which is a fun and exciting part of the jewelry craft. Let’s just admit that tribal jewelry’s got that mojo!
