These cute baby anklets are made of 3 mm silver wire with round profile. A hollow 3 small bell is attached to each anklet that is decorated on the surface with with "Podduang" pattern, unique to Thai Karen hill-tribe people. The design is based on traditional Asian anklets, but follows a much cleaner line without the usual engravings or other decorations (except for bell stamp patterns) and is thus a modern and refreshed interpretation of otherwise very traditional item. Bells make a lovely sound when your baby is moving around, in this way letting you know of every movement (s)he makes!

As anklets they are suitable from birth and can be worn until toddlerhood. But they can simultaneously be worn as wrist bracelets, too until much later.

For centuries, parents throughout the world from different areas and cultural backgrounds have celebrated the practice of giving newborns jewelry for decorative purposes and also to protect against evil spirits. Baby anklets represent a wonderful alternative to traditional baby-shower gifts. After the child has outgrown them, they can be added to other pieces of jewelry or kept as keepsake - becoming thus pieces of heirloom jewelry that can be passed down from one child to another, starting a tradition in your family that can last for generations to come.

Our products are handcrafted 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 lovely handmade Thai bamboo-weaved box and includes tracking number for safer shipping.

By purchasing this product, you contribute directly to maintain and support local arts and crafts in Thailand.


Weight: approx. 11 g per pair

Diameter 35 mm (can be slightly adjusted)
Bells are around 9 mm in diameter

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.
