This type of bead weaving is typical of the tribes from interior nagaland and is very rare.
Not only is the structure of the bead jewelry unique, even the designs and styles are untypical.
There is a piece of wood within the beaded cone. Probably worn on the hair.
Estimated to be from the early 1900s
