Waziri Vintage Tribal Jewelry Pendant

This large colorful Kuchi Pendant was handcrafted in the mid to late-1900's in by the Afghan Wazir Kuchi tribe. It has long dangles with bells that make a wonderful sound when it moves. An extra large bail along the top is ready for hanging on a favorite ribbon, chain, or cord. 

The foundation of the upper portion was crafted on an old coin. You can still see the opposite side of the coin when looking at the back. 

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.
