These elephant 'spirit' earrings have been made from fine silver with cutouts in the hoops to reveal the 'hair' within. A synthetic material is used rather than actual elephant hair and so symbolises the talismanic tradition of this design.
The earrings are made by the Karen Hill Tribe who are subsistence farmers in remote Northern Thailand and who have a strong spiritual connection with their land and nature in general. This is reflected in the traditional designs in their jewellery. The silversmithing can be fitted in around the needs of their farming and ensures that this valuable and skillful tradition is kept alive.
Thai silver is 99.9% pure, in contrast with sterling silver at 92.5% purity, and this means that it tarnishes less quickly and requires less regular polishing to retain its appeal.
Sterling silver earring hooks.
