Kuchi coin pendant built on a tribal coin.  About 2 inches from top to bottom, including bale and embellishments, and about 1 inch wide.  Mixed metals are silvery to slightly brassy in color.  This pendant is in original condition.  Nice small penant for a bra center or use on accessory projects.  These make great key fobs!

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.
