Four nice little coin dangle pendants. Sizes range from about 4.5 to 4.75 inches long, including bales and about 1.25 inches wide. Mixed metals with small jewels. Tribal belly dance costuming pendants for adding to costumes or accessories or use for any other purpose where you need just little more detail. These are just long enough to work well as a center piece for a bra with three left over to place elsewhere on costuming.
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.
