Vintage Afghan Waziri Kuchi Tribal Jewelry Pendant

This large Vintage Afghan Kuchi Pendant was handcrafted in the mid 1900's with long bell dangles that make a wonderful sound with every movement. 

4 loops across the top, and 2 more loops along each side for threading a favorite ribbon, chain, or cord to make a unique necklace.

From the nomadic Kuchi of the Afghan Wazir Tribe. Vibrant colorful beads and warm age patina intact. Excellent condition.
About Waziristan: Once part of the opulent Mughal Empire, Waziristan now belongs to the Tribal Areas in eastern Afghanistan and northwestern Pakistan. It was named after the Wazir tribe who lived there for centuries.

Like so many other regions in this part of the world, Waziristan has experienced years of recent turmoil and difficulties, especially in its more remote areas. Its prior heritage, however, was that of wonderfully vibrant arts and skillfully crafted jewelry.
