Champak flower handmade silver earrings (E0190)
These earrings were created from a single sheet of silver, etched on the surface and folded into the shape of a Thai flower called Champak (Michelia Champaca) which is commonly featured in Thai flower garlands. Traditional Thai ladies can sometimes be seen wearing a champak flower behind their ear, or a handful of the flowers can be found floating in a bowl of water as a home-scenting accessory.
The flower is simply hanging from the sterling silver hook and although it is not soldered, it doesn't move when walking. It is very lightweight and comfortable to wear.
Our products are hand crafted in 95-98% Silver by Thai Karen hill-tribe artisans.
The Karen are a group of ethnic peoples who reside primarily in southern and southeastern Burma and in northern and north-eastern Thailand. Thai and Burmese hill tribes can be traced back to the 12th century when they are said to have originated from Tibet.
With a higher silver content than sterling silver, Karen silver has a weight, bright satin color and feel, all of its own. Every piece is handmade and individual.
The product comes in a traditional Thai packaging and includes tracking number for safer shipping.
