The art and craft of any region is a reflection of its environment, people and traditions. This statement is apt for Negi and Bodh tribes of Himachal Pradesh, which borrow elements from its scenic surroundings to create ¥pahari jewelry, breathing a sense of vigor and sturdiness. While different communities wear jewelry unique to their traditions, some ornaments are common to all. These include neck ornaments like hansi or small pendants called toke and most cherished neckpieces called the coin necklace and thread necklace. The designs are inspired by simple motifs taken from nature and developed into exquisite patterns.
