Necklace from horsehair

Necklace for female use. Among all Filipino ethnic groups, the use of personal adornment, which is also a symbol of status and social prestige, has been traditional. In the regions where there is a subsistence economy, personal adornments are made mainly with ephemeral materials, while in those areas where there is a more complex organization, more durable materials are used, including jewelry.
