Since its earliest invention, glass was popular for jewelry and adornment. Its translucent brilliance attracted the eye, while its rich colors imitated rarer and more costly gems. This unusual bracelet dates to the Islamic period, which inherited its glassmaking tradition from the Roman world. Utterly simple, it nonetheless conveys the impression of timeless style and beauty. Its colors are as soft and glowing as dawn in the desert. We can imagine it jangling on the wrist of some dark-eyed woman, delighting her senses as it still delights ours today. - (GF.0248)
