Signed Silver Antique Yemen Wheel Beads Apparently from Same Workshop
The intricate silversmithing on this traditional style of Yemen wheel beads is outstanding. In the photograph below, you see the construction of the rows of granulation that become a usually perfectly round bead. The beads are made to fit as bead caps for large amber beads or to fit together edge to edge on a kirdan or bridal dowry necklace.
Here is an illustration of how Yemen granulated silver wheel beads can be used with large amber resin beads:
