This long layering necklace features two vintage kuchi coin dangles with little temple bells. One of the dangles has inset red glass jewels.
The pendants are set on a raw light leather cord and hangs below the breastbone. Wear alone as a statement piece or mix and match with other necklaces for a wild and free boho look.
Nickel end caps and a vintage brass bell finish the necklace.
This pendant was made by the nomadic Kuchi people in Afghanistan. The material is "gillet" metal, which is about three-fourths brass, mixed with copper, silver, iron, or all three. The surface is buffed with a thick silver plating that is very durable. The glass stones were set with beeswax originally, but some may have been replaced at some point over the years using jeweler's glue. Double coin layering necklace.
