Hollow dangles make a nice jingle!

Kuchi tassel cap with dangles and punched design detailing.  These pieces are often seen on the tops of hats but work very well as tassel tops for dance costuming, adding a bit of a jingle as well.  4.5 inches long from top tube to bottom of dangles.  1.75 inches wide.  Mixed metals are brassy and unpolished but slightly shiny

The story of Kuchi jewelry, like all tribal jewelry, is rich with influences from many cultures.  These beautiful pieces with colorful glass jewels and jingling bells originally came from the nomadic Pashtoon tribes that wandered the border areas of Afghanistan and Pakistan, along ancient routes between the seasons, moving down from the mountains in the winter and back to their homes in the summer. The word Kuchi itself is derived from a Persian word meaning migration, in relation to nomads or gypsies, and does not describe a particular group or people, but rather a state of being.
