A Barabaig bride wears a spectacular collection of beaded hides, coiled brass anklets and armlets, spiral finger rings, and an impressive necklace of hand-beaten brass plaques. Her face is veiled with a net of wire chains which hang from the rim of a beautifully beaded cap. On her upper arm she wears plastic bracelets incised with patterns made from sliced water pipes – reminiscent of the ivory bracelets worn in the past.
