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.

The teardrop earrings are traced with sterling silver. Please accept slight variations because of the natural materials. Handmade by Navajo artisans in Arizona.
