Wealth of  Ladakh

Photos of photo prints of women wearing traditional jewelry at festivals. 

The magnificentv Petak headdress has been discussed earlier. 

But the  others have not received enough attention! 

Here are sone fantastic pueces:

The large necklaces are called skeypuksand the silver flower worn at the waist is the tshooptze. 

The Perak headdress and the ghau, the ear ornaments all combine to make the most amazing set of cultural jewels!

If there were ever a meaningless competition among world cultures for the most extravagant jewelry created, Ladakh would probably win! 

Some pieces soon to be offered on the WOVENSOULS gallery:

Blessings to the creators
