When in Nepal, everyday & everywhere
we go we see nepali women
wearing beautiful jewellery which
is also a symbol of wealth.
Each tribe has their own style
so if you know what to look for you can tell
wich tribe they belong to by having
a glimpse on the
jewellery they are wearing.
Yellow gold is
definitely the most popular precious metal, but
just recently we got to learn that
there is actually one tribe down south that
only wears silver ( bottom pic )
Have to look more into that later
One thing all the tribes have in common,
is a gold or silver amulet that is worn to
to ward off evil spirits.
The jewellery also reflects creativity
and special skills of the artisans who
have been crafting these ornaments
Keeping these traditions alive
is one of the main reasons we work
with handmade jewellery.
Man over machine.
