This earring is composed of a button shape flat white-iridescent pearl beads and a handmade geometric shape patterned silver piece.
All silver parts are handmade in 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.
The earring can be matched to a similar necklace and bracelet we also have in our shop.
It comes with traditional Thai packaging and includes tracking number for safer shipping.
By purchasing this product, you contribute directly to maintain and support local arts and crafts in Thailand.
