1 Handmade Karen Hill Tribe Silver Long Oval Focal Bead measures approx. 39x10x8mm detail on both sides very heavy focal bead with basketweave detail in the centre this is a large hole bead with the hole being approx. 2.4mmThis item is made by the Karen Hill Tribe situated in the north of Thailand. The tribes were originally nomadic until they settled in mountainous regions of Thailand. Village families specialise in a particular style of bead so our collection is made by a range of craftsmen. Karen silver, also known as Tribal Silver or Hill Tribe Silver is almost pure at 99.5 to 99.9% silver, the remainder being the solder which bonds pieces together. Karen silver appears different from sterling silver - this silver is white and shining (unless antiqued!) and satiny, the hand-hammered and chased details are wonderful and you can actually see evidence of each piece being handmade. We buy directly from the makers so you can be sure of their authenticity.
