This earrings is handcrafted in 95-98% silver by the Karen hill-tribe silversmiths. The design is modern and geometrical, though based on a traditional shape - a thick silver is bent and welded to form a shape of a prism, like a skeleton of a traditional Vietnamese lantern.
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.
