Ngepan Indu Iban Part 5
Antin Pirak - Silver earrings / silver studs
In the modern Kumang competition ladies would prefer to deck themselves with dangling earrings. Probably to make them look more "blinging" i suppose.
I believe in less is more....so I wore round studs instead of dangling accessory piece. Another reason is that when I research through the images in books and the internet, the Iban ladies in the olden days would wear studs. And yes ofcourse they're not original accessories.....but I'm glad to have embarked on this idea because I was the only one wearing studs..:)
