Vintage Balochi drape pendant.  Just over 13 inches from hook to ring.  About 2.25 inches wide.  Mixed metals with small red and green glass jewels.  This pendant is a hair or headpiece pendant that originaly would have been one of a pair that hooked into the hair or onto a headpiece at the tmeple and been draped back into the hair behind the ear.  This pendant might be a nice addition to the bottom edge of a costume belt, draped around the hip, or add to a headpiece in the original fashion.

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.
