About the Event
Did you know that jewellery in the Middle East is loved not only for its design and beauty, but mostly for its’ monetary value and economic power? It grants independence to the owner, and prosperity to the whole household. It seals the magical spellings or good-willing prayers, scares away the Evil and a Bad Eye, and gives protection to a newborn or a bride. It guarantees peace, designates a status, and marks a cycle of life. It travels together with its owner crossing deserts, national borders, cultures and times. Changes and mutates with generations of women, gets broken, repaired and melted. Exchanged for food, a roof or a wife. It has so many incredible stories to tell!
You will learn:
- History of Jewellery & Arabian Heritage
- Female Capital & Independence
- Dowry & Inheritance
- Silver & Gold
- Symbolism & Mysticism
Expatriates, visitors, and those who wish to connect with local culture. Suitable from 10 years old.
