The ancient tradition of creating and assembling national costumes was preserved throughout Curonian women's clothing over the ages. We can see how they were applied in the North-western Courland in the 15th century, for example. Beautiful Curonian woolen shawls were decorated along the edges with thousands of interwoven bronze spirals that collectively formed geometric patterns. Typical Curonian women’s adornments included armbands that were worn on both hands. These metal armbands were decorated by patterns shaped into the metal itself, the style of which changed over time. Metal neck-ring that were twisted or braided in style were worn around the neck, at the ends of which hung pendants. Crowns made of twisted bronze metal were used as head ornaments.
