This Christmas star necklace is handmade by Thai artisans in 95-98% Thai Silver. The star shape pendant is cut from a silver leaf and welded one to another. The surface is then treated with the so-called “Cat Fur” technique in order to obtain scratched texture. The chain consists of tiny handmade rice-grain-shaped silver beads, and closes with a simple silver hook.
We also have matching star-shape earrings in our shop.
Our products are hand crafted in 95-98% Silver by Thai Karen hill-tribe artisans. 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.
We can produce it in about 2-3 weeks after ordering, in case it’s currently out of stock.
