Adjustable wire cuff with open back design. Lots of small jingling bells to attract the eye and delight the ear. Tribal cuff from pakistan is based on an ancient design. Individual wires held in place by metal frame with stamped designs. About 4 inches from wrist to forearm. Currently the inner circumference ranges from about 7 inches at the wrist up to almost 9 inches at the forearm, including the small gap at the back. Adjustable from about 6 inches around to a bit more than 8 inches at the wrist end. Made from brassy mixed metals. The finish is slightly polished but not super shiny. Since this is a new cuff bracelet, the metal at the opening can feel a bit sharp to sensitive skin. Please use care when putting this bracelet on or taking it off.
Kuchi means "nomad" in the Afghan Dari language. The livelihood and culture of the Kuchis have been all but destroyed by conflict, drought, and demographic shifts. Some 200,000 Kuchis are displaced in Afghanistan; an equal or larger number are refugees in Pakistan; and hundreds of thousands of others are eking out a precarious existence in urban or rural areas in Afghanistan. Only a small number of Kuchis still follow their traditional livelihood of nomadic herding.
