Silver Braid Ends – that take at least an hour to fix! And help is needed from other women – mother-in-law or sister in law or neighbours to get it all arranged in place

[These two pieces are from the wovensouls collection acquired on my first ‘foreign’ solo trip in 2007 to Lhasa, Shigatse, Gyantse & Everest Base camp – I here everything has changed in Tibet since then :(!!]
The most magnificent of all are the ones from Mongolia – and I have not seen any real ones yet.
