Handmade by the Naga's, a tribal group of northeast india, the beads are made by natural colors and materials found locally in the area. In the Naga tradition, beaded necklaces were very popular as a show of finery but also as a portable means of displaying and carrying wealth. The components that went into making necklaces were regarded as currency items themselves. Beads and necklaces were accumulated as heirlooms and were passed as dowries. These necklaces are cultural artefacts. They are also sustainable items made of natural materials by highly skilled artisans that have been practicing their craft since generations.
