Tribo Rio Omo Africa

Ethiopia’s Omo Valley People

Ethiopia’s Surma and Mursi tribes in the southwest Omo River valley region present a unique perspective on self-expression in the African style. As a result of their nomadic lifestyle, location near lush vegetation, and inventive nature, tribe members have taken body painting and adornment to a new level of creativity which has inspired the color palette for ethniciti collections.

Photographer Hans Silvester writes in his book ‘Natural Fashion: Tribal Decoration from Africa’:

An arena of incessant tribal land and guerrilla warfare, and a hotbed for the arms and ivory trades, the Omo Valley nevertheless plays host — when the Kalashnikovs fall silent — to some astonishing events of a much more peaceful nature. Among the fifteen tribes that have lived in this Rift region since time immemorial, the Surma and the Mursi, two tribes that get on well together, share a taste for body painting and extravagant decorations borrowed from nature. The former is done mainly with materials from the plant world, whereas the latter predominantly comprises products of the hunt — all kinds of prophies, including buffalo horns, warthog tusks, monkey skins and more. 

GlamTribale for Kol Ami in Elkins Park

GlamTribale Omo Valley-inspired raffle gift for Oct. 13-14 The Crafts & Fine Arts Show at Kol Ami in Elkins Park, PA.It’s an exclusive set of designs that will only be made once to support the wonderful community projects of the Kol Ami temple. While we will make an entire collection inspired by the Omo Valley people, these three pieces remain one-only pieces that will not be reproduced.

The copper findings for each piece have been imported from Israel. The necklace features Hebron beads at least 200 years old. Hebron is the burial place of Jewish, Muslim and Christian faiths. Glassmaking in Hebron was not recorded until after the fall of the ancient city of Lebanon-Tyre to Crusaders.

The Hebron beads were made using Dead Sea Salts, in a variety of colors including green, yellow and blue. The beads used in our Kol Ami gift are the larger ones called Mongur. They were widely traded in Egypt, the Nile region and Sudan.

Our beads specifically came from Sudan, chosen because of Anne of Carversville’s history of standing ferocioiusly against the flogging of 40,000 women a year in Sudan.

The pieces are retail valued at:

Necklace: $325

Bracelet: $175

Earrings: $125 (Note: the pierced earrings can be converted to clip on Sunday Oct. 14th)

The Kol Ami community has a record of standing for women’s rights, and I wanted to make this linkage in the jewelry between their community efforts on behalf of women and my own.

Come see us this weekend at the Kol Ami!! ~ Anne

Anne Talks The Power of Small Earrings and Thai Massage

Mt. Airy Pop-Up Sept 2012

There was dancing in the street, right outside our Mt. Airy pop-up store last weekend. We had a fabulous time and sold A LOT of jewelry on Sunday. This is the intersection of Green and Carpenter, right next to the Weavers Way Coop.

My design assistant and GlamTribale jewelry maker Zuwena, pictured below with her mother-in-law Iman, persuaded me to make a group of small earrings — pierced and clip — that sold for $15. It was a huge hit and didn’t bastardize our sales of $150 bracelets for one minute.

I don’t intend to sell $15 earrings — and a new collection coming soon at $25 — unless they are a free gift or part of a deal. But as a pickup gift at craft fairs and pop-ups like ours last week in Mt. Airy, they are a wonderful small gift.

AND, I’m reminded that so many women don’t like big earrings. This reality check paves the way forward for a new collection of small earrings made of semi-precious stones, gold and silver.

GlamTribale Jewelry Pop Up Shop in Mt Airy, Philadelphia Sept 2012

It’s only through sheer will that I’ve survived the past two months, probably the toughest in my career - and I’ve always worked very hard. We’ve redesigned about 70% of our products after our July 22 debut in Lancaster,  and they continue to progress.

After our wonderful event at Tribal Home two weeks ago, we agreed to do a pop up store at this weekend’s Mt. Airy Festival in Philadelphia.

Somehow it has happened with tremendous support from Robert, Zuwena, Ben and Cat. We popped into Mt. Airy on Thursday night and will pop out tonight. Many more pics coming.

Our next stop is Kol Ami Crafts Show Saturday night (ticket required) and Sunday Oct 14, 2012.  In the next two weeks, we will completely change out the GlamTribale.com website with all the new products. Today the website and our pop up shop look like cousins. We will be totally in order by Oct 14 Kol Ami event and hopefully sooner. ~ Anne
