Bracelets Of Karen

Bracelets: Pwo women like to cover their arms with a variety of bracelets. Some are flat and narrow, while others are round and smooth, twisted or coiled. They may be made of silver, copper, brass, or aluminum. Several kinds are often worn together.

In some areas it has become popular among the Pwo to wear bracelets made by stringing ordinary white shirt buttons back to back, with tiny brass bells attached. Others wear bracelets made of plaited rattan or lacquered thread. Sgaw women are much more moderate in their use of jewelry. A few men, both Sgaw and Pwo, wear simple bracelets of silver, brass, or aluminum-one on each wrist.
