Nepalese Tribal Jewelry - Vintage Bana Tharu Kanthshri Necklace

Kanthshri (Kantshri) necklaces like this come only from a small area in South-Western Nepal where they were handcrafted by the Bana Tharu tribe during the mid to late 1900's.  

They have an unmistakably Tribal Jewellery look. Kanthshri Necklaces are made using metal alloy spiked beads that are strung together on twisted cotton strands. The necklace is artfully made so that it lays perfectly around the neck, for a dramatic and infinitely tribal look. 

This Vintage Tharu Kanthshri necklace is finished with an old coin at the center front.   A coin loop-clasp completes the closure at the back.
