Africa | Set of silver coptic crosses bought in Egypt some 25 years ago. The silver brooch was also bought at that time and represents typical Nubian houses in Upper Egypt. | © Jose M Pery. { It is worth noting here that there are Coptic people in both Egypt and Ethiopia, which might explain why the crosses look so similar }

Africa | Salhayat necklace, Siwa Oasis, (Egypt) | Silver, red and black coral. Very similar types of necklaces, under the name of Glada or Zurraga, can be found in Libya. I would attribute this to Siwa probably because of the silver marks in some of the "hilals". In any event the exchanges between Tunisia, Libya and the Siwa Oasis are well-known. | © Jose M Pery.
