Wealth of  Ladakh

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

The magnificentv Petak headdress has been discussed earlier.

Here are sone fantastic pueces:


The large necklaces are called skeypuks and 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!

Some pieces soon to be offered on the WOVENSOULS gallery:

Blessings to the creators
