An iridescent dragonfly alights on your lapel, its body a collection of semiprecious gems and minerals: black agate, garnet, amethyst, peridot, citrine, blue topaz, and marcasite—a traditional material in Thai jewelry. Dragonflies develop underwater, and when they emerge they shed their outer layer, revealing their typically brilliant colors. This granulated sterling silver pin, handcrafted in Thailand, captures the aerobatics and glimmering hues of these ''devil's darning needles.''

1 1/2''W x 1 1/2''L x 1/4''D.

          I didn't actually get to see this in person yet. I sent it to my mother-in-law as a Christmas present. She loved it! Said it was very beautiful.

            My daughter-in-law really likes this dragonfly brooch, and she has dozens of them. The dragonfly has a special, spiritual meaning for her. She wears these brooches on special occasions and keeps them in a special display case. The are quite beautiful and well made: a good buy, in my estimation.

            Lovely to wear, once I can get the clasp to work - received it somewhat broken - I have to really work at putting it on - then hope it won't come open - don't want to return it because it is out of stock, so I can't get a replacement, and otherwise I love it.

                (Based on 1 review)
                Category: Jewelry/Bracelets

                The way of life among Thailand's northern hill tribes has changed little over the centuries. Traditionally, artisans melt silver bars and old necklaces to create new adornments for New Year celebrations, an example of which is this cuff of braided, intertwined strands of sterling silver. The artisan melts, cools, hammers, shapes, chisels, and engraves the sterling silver to achieve a braided and woven effect.

                Don’t let their simplicity deceive you. The sleek, modernist lines of these mango-wood vases connect multiple generations of Thai woodcarvers. The young artisan who creates them combines carving skills she inherited from her father with her own fresh sense of style. The unpretentious design also belies the time that goes into creating each vase. Each lathe-shaped vase is made from a single piece of kiln-dried mango wood in a process that can take as long as two weeks.

                During Chiang Mai’s rainy season, bright blue skies can darken in an instant as lightning pierces the air. As dangerous as the sudden storms can be, they can also be beautiful in their intensity. Thai artisan Khun pairs faceted labradorite—thundercloud grey with subtle flashes of iridescent blue—and 24-karat gold vermeil in elegant designs that capture the colors of her city’s summer storms.

                From the village to the palace, the majestic elephant is a revered symbol of the Thai people. In fact, many Thai people believe that the prosperity of the Thai nation is tied to the wellbeing of the chang samkhan or "auspicious elephants" kept by the royal family. Made in a small studio in the northern Thai city of Chang Mai, this charming set of three elephant-shaped coin purses in bright colors are perfect for kids just learning to count their pennies and for grown-ups who want to add a touch of whimsy to their everyday errands.

                A delicately woven sterling silver chain is the focus of this necklace, handcrafted in Thailand by silversmiths from the northern hill tribes. Silver jewelry is a rich part of hill tribe tradition, both making it and wearing it. Women traditionally wear elaborate necklaces, headdresses, and bracelets for festivals and celebrations, and many hill tribe people prefer silver to paper currency. This necklace features beaded and braided elements created by members of three different Thai hill tribes.

                This soft, swingy rayon cardigan is the perfect travel companion. It packs into the tiniest space and is all but impossible to wrinkle. Pull it out for a quick layer on chilly flights or to wear to dinner as the sun sets on a long day of exploring. You can even roll it up to use as a pillow in a pinch. Dip-dyed in a black and purple ombrÉ pattern (from the French word for shade). Hand-dyed in Thailand, where textiles make up more than half of the country’s handicrafts.

                The hills of northern Thailand are home to about 20 distinct tribes, including the Hmong and the Karen. Each tribe has its own cultural traditions, but all the tribes are known for their silver jewelry, which many people use instead of paper money. Women wear their wealth in the form of collars, earrings, and bracelets. This swirl necklace is made in northern Thailand villages, in the spirit of hill-tribe craftsmanship. Made using white metal. The necklace features onyx beads.

                Craftswomen from Thailand’s Hmong tribe embroider this bright and richly textured bag with patterns inspired by distinctive paj ntaub (pronounced pahn-DAH-OH), or “flower cloth” textiles. Since the Hmong language had no written form until missionaries introduced it in the 1950s, family histories are often told through these elaborate embroidered and appliquéd textiles. Inner zip pocket. Handmade in northern Thailand. Please allow for variations in each individually created piece.

                Throughout the world, images of shields symbolize protection and safety. The shield guards the vulnerable and radiates strength. This powerful cuff bracelet from Thailand is fashioned from overlapping silver shields, each patterned with a beautiful woven motif. Husband-and-wife designers Achara and Withaya are devoted to preserving the traditional silverwork of their homeland, and they work directly with indigenous craftspeople from the hill tribes of Thailand and Myanmar to bring this gleaming bracelet to life.
