Glass Bead Craft of Arunachal Pradesh

Craft Revival Trust

Ornaments and necklaces made of fine strips of cane and grass are popular with the hill tribes in the area. The indigenous jewellery made from forest-based products involves very intricate work and is exceptionally beautiful. The Akas make bamboo bangles and ear ornaments which they decorate with intricate burnt-poker work designs. Besides making ear ornaments from glass beads, wild seeds, cane, bamboo, and reed the Wanchos make beautiful necklaces out of grass.
