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.

    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'

    My late grandmother collected Bells of Sarna and inspired me to have a bell collection as a child. Over the years I've only held onto my Bells of Sarna - I love them, they will always be reminders of my grandmother and her influence in nurturing my early curiosity of cultures all over world! I am also happy to find this board :)

    I'll never forget seeing S.S. Sarna wrapping his turban around his head between talks at the New York City bell convention in the early 70's. I'm still a member of the American Bell Association and treasure the bells that your Dad sold to my mother. I'm lucky that my adult daughter is into bell collecting, too! americanbell.org.
