Glass Beads of Arunachal

Tribals are extremely fond of jewellery and ornaments. Coloured beads are often strung together as simple necklaces and worn around the neck. Others make the beads into attractive patterns. The Wanchos make ear ornaments from glass beads, wild seeds, cane, bamboo, and reed. In southeast Arunachal Pradesh beads of agate stone, brass, and silver are also used.
