This handmade bracelet is composed of small rounded turquoise beads and a handmade plain silver cube in the middle string. The three strings are attached to a silver toggle hook in triangular shape, decorated with tiny “Podduang” pattern, typical of Thai Karen hill-tribe people.
Turquoise is one of the oldest protection amulets, and was also known as a symbol of wealth and nobility in many ancient cultures.
All silver parts are hand crafted in 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.

The color of the turquoise beads can vary from greenish to bright blue.
