These dangle earrings are made from thin flat silver sheet that was passed into the rolling mill with various organic materials (wood bark and dry leaves, for example) which leave the surface with uniquely embossed pattern. The circles are also slightly bent and punched where the sterling silver hook with long end is attached.
They are modern and although quite big surprisingly lightweight. Because of the manual process of texturing the metal we can never recreate 100% same surface, however we will make sure the final effect is about the same. Uniqueness of the product is what makes it special, as no two pairs can be exactly the same.
All our silver products are created in 95-98% Silver which is typical of the Thai Karen hill-tribe artisans, who have been using traditional tools and techniques for centuries. 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 earrings come with a traditional Thai package that can be a lovely gift or just simply jewelry storage. We send all our packages with tracking number for safer shipping.
