Recognizable as Thai Hill Tribe work by its rustic simplicity and extraordinary craftsmanship, this is a particularly charming piece of wearable art. Each rose is hand wrought - so no two are exactly the same. The necklace length is adjustable with a clever slip knot at the back.
The silversmiths in northern Thailand live in scattered areas and carve out a difficult existence of subsistence farming. They are exposed to the whims of nature and vulnerable to a lack of reliable law enforcement. Never-the-less, they are proud of their craft which adds greatly to their financial security and social status. Traditional Hill Tribe people have always mistrusted paper money, preferring instead to trust that silver will always retain its value.
Materials: Hand wrought Thai Hill Tribe Sterling Silver on a woven waxed linen cord.
