The necklace is made of tiny handmade silver beads, called “rice beads” due to their shape and a series of handmade, hollow silver pieces, crafted in 95-98% Silver. The hollow geometrical shape pieces make a lovely tinkling sound when moving and are worn by Thai hilltribe people in their traditional attire.
Our products are hand crafted in 95-98% Silver by Thai Karen hill-tribe artisans by means of traditional tools and techniques. The Karen are a group of ethnic peoples who reside primarily in southern and southeastern Burma and in northern and north-eastern Thailand. Thai and Burmese hill tribes can be traced back to the 12th century when they are said to have originated from Tibet.
With a higher silver content than sterling silver, Karen silver has a weight, bright satin color and feel, all of its own. Every piece is handmade and individual.
The product comes with traditional Thai packaging and includes tracking number for safer shipping.
