Silver jewelry for the Thai Hill Tribe people plays a role that surpasses mere adornment! The Hilltribe people have for centuries worn silver as a status symbol and method of preserving family wealth.
This one-of-a-kind fine silver bead necklace is a handsome example of fine hand wrought silver. Making use of traditional symbols of fish, flowers and clouds, this handmade artwork reflects the strong connection the indigenous people from northern Thailand still have with nature and the land.
Remotely located in a harsh landscape ill-suited to their agricultural pursuits, the Thai Golden Triangle area has a history of lawlessness and intrigue.
