Matched pair

Matched pair of round medallions.  These tribal pieces are called gul, and have been removed from old clothing or other decorative items.  Because these pieces are handmade, there may be some slight variation in size, shape or pattern.  These medallions are made on a backing material of fabric and cardboard and embellished with metallic thread.  They are most often traditionally used in adorning clothing or other personal items. 

Afghani beadwork is some of the finest in the world, often with intricate mathematical patterns.  (Studies have been done on the mathematics of Kuchi beadwork - ask me about it!)  Please be aware that these pieces have been used and reused, often many times, and will show wear in places.  If necessary, beadwork can often be repaired simply by running a bit of beading floss through the beads and knotting it securely.
