Blessed Hope Nepal
Original Bracelet: Himalayan Pangden
This original bracelet is part of Blessed Hope Nepal's Pangden Series.
Pangdens are colorful, woven aprons worn by women throughout the Himalayas. They differ in color from one area to another, from neutral shades to very bright colors but all have weaves of natural or synthetic yarn in bands of alternating colors. Pangdens often signify that a woman is married and are often used to keep women warm in cold Himalayan climates. The inspiration for this series came from a pangden worn by one of the women of Blessed Hope Nepal. The women of Blessed Hope Nepal are eager to share this series with you because of their pride in their culture and the tradition of the pangden.
Each piece is hand crocheted bead by bead by the women at Blessed Hope Nepal and is made from glass seed beads and cotton thread. Great care and detail is put into creating each and every piece. This necklace is stunning and can be layered with other jewelry that you already own. It is a beautiful and colorful addition to any wardrobe!
7" in length and rolls over most wrists
Each bracelet includes a beautiful tag with ribbon as well as a card with more information about Blessed Hope Nepal.
