Neckpiece - Lambanis are a gypsy tribe mainly inhabiting western Indian states including Maharashtra and Andhra Pradesh. Women of Lambani tribes wear beautifully decorated clothes, and Jewellery is an essential part of their lifestyle. Their Jewelry has a raw and rustic appeal using thick cotton thread and metal pendants and beads. Entirely handcrafted, the Metal Smiths of the tribe create the Pendants used in the jewelry, that are oxidized or given a silver coating for the final finish. Each cotton bead is painstakingly made by the women. The process involves knotting of cotton yarn around a knitting needle (or any similar metal rod) to make beads of various sizes. The beads are then put through a cotton chain and the ends are pleated and knotted for a clean finish.
Please note the necklace is on discount since there are small smudged dye marks on the dori. Please see pictures.
