This collar necklace is made with fine tube-shape pieces that compose the string part and six handmade silver pieces. They were crafted from a silver strip that we textured on surface with natural materials (wooden tree bark, straw, dry teak tree leaves, etc). The silver strip was thinned to roughly around 0.5 mm thickness by passing it into a rolling mill together with various materials that left the surface textured with beautiful, deeply embossed, natural patterns. Five pieces of silver strip were cut in different simple geometric forms, smoothed on edges and bent into the final shape. The hook that allows to string through the necklace is soldered at the back of each piece.

Because of the manual process of texturing the metal we can never recreate 100% same surface, however we will make sure the final effect is about the same. Uniqueness of the product is what makes it special, as no two necklaces can be exactly the same.

Our products are Handcrafted in 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.

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.
