Bells of Sarna

The Bells of Sarna are fascinating works of craftsmanship imported from India collected by people across the world. My father began the journey of bringing these bells from India to American in the 1920s and continued the tradition until the 1970s. You can still find these bells today on the backs of shop doors, in curio cabinets, and in homes across the globe. My mother partnered with my father to design the bells and also sold fashion, jewelry, and decorative accessories.

    Amazing what you can find on the internet about a windchime you've kept since you were a child!

    is there a listing of the names, or history of the sarna bells? I found a bunch in my Grandmothers bell collection!

    In '69, at a festival, I met a lovely woman who wore some bells dangling from her waist. She told me they were Bells of Sarna. One day several months later I heard those same bells and looked around and there she was!.I said I knew you were here when I heard those bells! She took them off and handed them to me and said.."to remember me by" and I have never forgotten her. They are hanging on my wall to this day. So happy to have found your site. Namaste'
