About

Collections from the Bazaar

Salam! And welcome to my shop...

About me:
I have always been interested in jewellery! I remember as a young girl rummaging through my mother's wooden jewellery box she kept displayed on her dressing table looking for newly acquired vintage beads & brooches. I enjoyed the thrill of holding old pieces up to the light & looking at them through new eyes...So, I guess it's no surprise that I have a passion for jewellery! In particular, old tribal adornment & vintage silver, which has a story to tell... who did it belong to & how far has it travelled before its reached my hands?

About my Etsy shop:
Bazaar Collections was born after a life changing adventure to Morocco fifteen years ago. It was here that I discovered my love of travel, decorative arts, antiquities, & tribal adornment. During this trip I spent two months exploring the old & dusty souks of Marrakech, Casablanca, & Fes looking for old silver tribal pieces - Bedouin, Berber & Tuareg amulets; exotic beads; & unusual treasures from around the world.

Today, I still love the thrill of rediscovering lost treasures & collecting beautiful pieces of adornment on my travels. I enjoy discovering its meaning & cultural significance - what tribal belief does it hold, what materials have been used to create it, & how does it feel to wear it? All of these elements are important to me & I try to portray the magic of each piece through my descriptions, research, & photography.

I also stock my own designs using the unusual elements I find, such as well worn silver trinkets, sea glass, & exotic trade beads from a bygone era...my inspiration comes from the sights, sounds, smells & tastes of my journeys across the globe - camel trains across ancient mud cities & sandy deserts; shades of indigo, saffron & crimson; the call to prayer across the medina; fresh mint tea brewing in the souk; & sweet almond cake delights on the eve of Ramadan. I hope you enjoy my oasis of exotic inspired jewellery & tribal collections. Inshallah!

I donate a portion of my proceeds to The Machin Foundation who care for the abused, old and disabled equines in Marrakech. Please check out their amazing work and dedication at: www.jarjeer.org
