Timor Drummers Cuff

$ 535

This is a rare and fascinating piece of jewelry from East Timor. It would be worn not as a cuff bracelet but along the first joint of the fingers by a drummer. The slight rattle in the head would accompany the beat of a drum for a ceremony.  You may wear it this way, however, it is also wearable as a more traditional cuff bracelet. The body is somewhat malleable so you can get a good fit for your wrist.

Material: High-grade silver

Measurements: 7.5" interior circ including 1.25" opening, 3.5" top to bottom
