This new collection of jewelry from Thailand is made by talented Thai artists using handcrafted Hill Tribe silver beads and pendants. A majority of Hill Tribe Silver jewelry is made by the Karen people of Northern Thailand. The Karen silversmiths are known for making high silver content (over .925) beads using traditional techniques that have been passed down from generation to generation. Hill Tribe beads are typically small engraved beads with plants, flowers, animals, or geometric designs which reflect their culture.
The Karen are one of the six major hill tribes that reside in the “Golden Triangle,” a region that connects Thailand, Loas and Burma. These six tribes include the Akha, Lahu, Karen, Hmong, Mien/Yao and Lisu. Each tribe has distinct language, culture and colorful hand-woven clothing and jewelry, which is still worn today. The Hill Tribes live in remote rural villages and are mainly agriculturalist.
