Combs, Hair Pins, Jewellery

In this category I have listed some of the bracelets, necklaces and combs and hair pins that comprise a but a small selection of the hand made jewellery and hair accessories that the Atoni people of Timor still make and use. In some areas the craft of making such items is sadly dying away but with sustained marketing and encouragement the skills of the artists will not be lost and will be retained as a source of both beauty and pride of their cultural integrity.
