Khampa Ladies, Tibet. By BetterWorld2010, via Flickr. Ornaments make up most of the life savings of many Khampa families. They are saved up for over many years and handed down for centuries from generation to generation within families. Until very recently, these families were nomadic ~ moving every few months because of the snowy seasons in the Himalayas ~ thus storing their wealth in portable form, such as art, precious fabrics and particularly jewellery and ornaments.
