I have been making a lot of jewelry while I’m here. The jewelers come to my house—grand central– and I place orders, buy beads at the market and string them. I suppose it is more elegant to say I design them. With our jewelry gala coming up Nov. 29 and having a booth at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas for cowboy Christmas Dec. 3-12, I have to stock up.
Today Aghali from Iferouane, another of our favorite communities who are very industrious and artistic, brought a big order of amulets to make necklaces and earrings made with stones I had brought him and a wonderful selection of copper, brass, nickel, silver and other jewelry supplies kindly donated by Linda Taylor. They had lots to work with and we invented a new look.
Everything is also available online–the newest will be posted when I get back Nov. 15. nomadgal.com
