Also available in a few shops in Wadi Musa are the very heavy antique necklaces. These are not generally on display and are expensive. If you are interested, visit the Sandcastle shop in Petra.
There are two craft shops at the Visitors’ Centre: one is run for the benefit of the Rural Women of Jordan and the other for the Ladies’ Working Circle of Wadi Musa. Here you will find a good selection of items, particularly jewellery or boxes done in mother-of-pearl marquetry, brightly-coloured hand-filled bottles of sand, woollen rugs, embroidered and woven pillows, fashion items, furniture, pottery, glass, wall hangings and metal work, as well as some of the famous embroidered articles. All of which make great gifts to take home as a memento of your stay in Jordan.
