Antique Rabari Pendant Necklace

105.00

The Rabari are nomadic pastoralists who live in the desert of Gujarat. They wear incredible decorative garments and jewelry. This oxidized silver pendant, with glass and enamel was collected on my travels in Kutch in 2010. If is actually a part of a nose ornament worn by Rabari women. I beaded it with a variety of glass beads from Nagaland, bone beads from Thailand, and hand-made metal beads from a market in Addis Abbaba, Ethiopia.
