This is a very special piece, created as a tribute to traditional Thai Karen bead-making techniques. All of the tiny beads that compose the 16 strands of each tassel are handmade and painstakingly beaded one by one (the process is very long and only few villages in Thailand’s North still preserve the skills to make these). The strands are capped and soldered into a handmade silver cap and they close with removable stud earring.
This is a statement piece of jewelry and will surely not go unnoticed.
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.
