Nice matching coin dangle pendants built on large tribal coins. About 4.75 inches from top to bottom, including bales, and about 1.25 inch wide. Mixed metals with large green glass jewels. These have great hollow dangles so make a very nice jingle. Could be used at each side of a tribal headpiece or to the ends of a costume belt.
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.
