The Montagnard Bead Necklace is made using traditional patterns that their tribes have adorned for centuries. As U.S. Soldiers began living and fighting alongside the Montagnards, they too began to wear them. Each piece is handmade in the USA by Ngel H, a Montagnard woman who fought alongside U.S. Special Forces in Vietnam. Fortune Goods the pleasure of working alongside Ngel H at her home in North Carolina. She still helps train U.S. Special Forces to this day.
