The Karen is 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.

given as a gift

I gave my daughter this necklace as a gift and she likes it a lot although the photograph seemed to suggest that the elements of it were larger than they are in real life. It is pretty and nicely made but more fine than I had expected.
