Yes, Black metal, silver and paper is back...... gold is out!
Well, you could say that black is always around , it is the color for the independant thinkers, the minimalists ......
The chinese say that there are five colours in black, how many colors can you see here!!?

Coptic cross had worn by Christian Ethiopians for more than 1600 years. They are often given at baptism. They are made either by the lost-wax method, or cut from a Maria Theresa dollar. They are generally named after towns or provinces where they are made.
