Artisan Story

Jewellery

Jewellery is one of the most revealing art forms - it tells us how people view themselves and what they value in the world. In the Levant, it has a very long and rich history dating back to the 3rd millennium B.C. Among the oldest examples of jewellery are those found in Queen Pu-abi’s tomb at Ur in Sumer, now called Tall al-Muqayyar in Iraq. Sumerian jewellery has inspired much of the forms that have been developed since. Although its making techniques have somewhat changed since the time of the Sumerians, many have remained unchanged.

At Turquoise Mountain Jordan, we aim to preserve these techniques through our training programmes and collaborations with local and international designers.

For this collection, we collaborated with UK based designer Pippa Small to make a wide range of unique earrings, pendants and rings. This collection is handmade in our workshop by master artisans and apprentices. Pippa Small has collaborated with Turquoise Mountain for over a decade, producing jewellery collections with artisans in Afghanistan, Myanmar and Jordan.
