Some of the finest examples of Kazakh applied art are to be found in necklaces and pectoral ornaments for women, medallions to adorn girls’ braids and pendants decorated with filigree, gemstones and pearls. There is a wealth of ornamentation on bracelets, rings and silver cases decorated by carving, engraving, inlay, cloisonné work and enamelling. The designs are usually based on geometric and floral patterns.
