Beggars Necklace with Bowl for Collecting Coins and Alms - Vintage Kuchi Tribal Jewellery

This unusual vintage Kuchi necklace is a beggars necklace worn by those requesting alms along the streets of towns and villages. No two necklaces are alike, since the owners add extra beads, pendants, and dangles to personalize. This one has a beaded flower pendant with a bell-shaped ornament below. 

Lots of  clattering dangles call to those passing by to give generously. There is a simple S-clasp for wearing as necklace, or it  wrapped around wrist a few times to make a bracelet, or hanging from a belt. One-of-a-kind Vintage Kuchi Tribal Jewelry.
