Silver jewelry has various patinas, depending upon finishing techniques of polish and oxidation. This piece is hand wrought Thai Hilltribe silver and what I particularly love about it is that the character of the finish makes it look completely handmade - as it SHOULD!
Hilltribe silver embodies centuries of Thai Hilltribe cultural history with many designs, such as those above, reflecting the seamless connection of Hilltribe people to their natural surroundings.
Originally a nomadic people skilled as farmers of opium, the Karen Hilltribe people wore silver as a show of status and wealth.
