Persian Gulf / Khalij-e-Fars
Materials: Thai silver, turquoise, azurite

We say “Persian Gulf Forever”, which is celebrated in a very special song by Ebrahim Hamedi, the great Iranian pop singer and actor. Since the Islamic revolution, his music has been illegal to play in Iran. Known as Ebi, he has lived in Montreal and now Los Angeles. Listen here.
