Strings of mock coral beads of varying lengths so as to hang in loops covering a large area below the neck. The strings of beads have been stitched to an oblong of calico at each end, to which are attached machine-woven ribbons tied in a bow at each side, with a further length of narrower ribbon to secure.
These objects are only a part of our collections, of which there are more than 350,000 objects. This information comes from our collections database. Some of this is incomplete and there may be errors. This part of the website is also still under construction, so there may be some fields repeated or incorrectly formatted information.
The database sometimes uses language taken from historical documents to help research, which may now appear outdated and even offensive. The database also includes information on objects that are considered secret or sacred by some communities.
