I have suzanis and ikats from Central Asia, Turkomen jewelry, mirrored textiles from India, silver jewelry from Mexico, Guatemala and South American, fabulous bracelets, earrings and necklaces from North Africa and clothing from the Minorities Region of China. You will also find contemporary pieces of jewelry and clothing made with vintage components.
I must have been born with the collecting gene. I began collecting ethnic jewelry more than 30 years ago, and on a trip to Turkey in 2000, I discovered wonderful jewlelry, clothing and textiles form Central Asia. I bought way more than I could ever keep, thus Samarkand was born.
