Body adornment has weaved its expressions
throughout the course of human history - touching
all civilizations and indigenous cultures - coloring
this world - east to west and north to south. The
tapestry created is one of beauty, uniqueness and
holds within its threads a multitude of meaning.
Jewelry, body piercing, tattooing and other kinds
of body adornment have served as a sacred language.
This language speaks of social position, tribal
affiliation, and marital status. It speaks of a
rite of passage, a birth and a death. Jewelry can
also be used for protection and to enhance rituals
The vast expressions of adornment also reflect the
fluid concept of beauty and aesthetic pleasure that
can be seen in the cultures of the past as well
as the present.
The jewelry from Ebone Designs has within it - the
roots of tradition, and from these roots spring
the inspiration of today. We honor the boldness
of expression in all its exotic forms.
