These earrings are handmade in 98% silver by the Karen hill-tribe silversmiths. The artisan crafted shape of a leaf is cut from a thin silver sheet and gently curved backwards, like a sprouting leaf. The surface is etched on both sides in order to obtain a texture called "Cat Fur"effect. The leaf is hung on a sterling silver hook and moves slightly.
In case we don't have it in stock, we can produce it in about 2 weeks.
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.
By purchasing this product, you contribute directly to maintain and support local arts and crafts in Thailand.
