These dangle earrings are handmade from 95% silver, hooks are in sterling silver.
The five peaces are each made of thin silver sheet that was folded to create a diamond shape piece with a visible vertical fold. Silver was etched on surface with the so called “cat-fur” effect, typically used by Thai Karen silversmiths.
All the pieces have a small loop soldered on the inner side and are hanged one from another so that the pieces move slightly. The earring can be mounted on a hook in two ways – so that the fold is visible in front or hidden on the back. Despite the length they are easy to wear as they are very lightweight.
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 in a traditional Thai packaging and includes tracking number for safer shipping.
Length: 9 cm including the hook, each piece is 1 cm across widest point.
