This lovely silver bracelet is made from small hand-worked triangular silver beads, each one stamped on all sides with a leaf pattern. At each end, and separating groups of 5 of these beads, is a round turquoise bead.
The Karen Hill Tribe are subsistence farmers in remote Northern Thailand and 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.
