This hand-worked charm bracelet combines slender silver tubing with 5 stamped silver leaves, each one accented by 2 round turquoise beads. There is an additional turquoise bead at each end of the bracelet which closes with a strong hook and ring.
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.
Strong hook catch
