These are made of burmese amber.
wow Patti, thats an inspirational pic
thanks for posting!
Wow thanks a lot, Patti and Alaa Eddine. Both Pictures are very impressive! Patti's Picture Shows astonishing facial Tattoos and pipes for ladies (!), Alaa's Picture Shows well how These plugs look worn! (must have very big holes in the earlobes).
here you are ladies
BUt i may be mistaken, these could not be CHIN but rather HKHAKu minority from the same region
I did finds a several pics of Chin ladies sans earplugs. I think the facial markings are really spectacular, from the pics they are common amongst these people.
Never seen, would be interesting to see how they look worn. I know it is not always easy to find the matching photos....what is their length? I imagine they are worn "in the middle", that means one equal part sticking out on both sides of the ear (?).
Very interesting. Can imagnine it looking good with this color.
