This bracelet is composed of tiny handmade silver beads, beaded on 18 strands. The two ends of the strings terminate with handmade silver caps. It is a unique peace of jewelry, part of our “multistrand” collection that celebrates Thai Karen traditional beading techniques.
All our silver jewelry is made in 95-98 % silver by the Karen hill-tribe silversmiths.
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.
It comes 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.
