The Karen Hill Tribe in Thailand made the focal point Silver piece which is hanging from a delicate necklace that I made using Charlotte Seed Beads.
Being between 99.5% and 99.9% pure silver, Karen silver has a higher silver content than Sterling silver. It's just the solder used to fuse the silver components together that makes up the last fractions of a percent. Consequently, it has a weight, bright satin colour, and feel, all of its own. Every piece is handmade and individual. The hand-hammered and chased details are wonderful and you can actually see evidence of each piece having been formed by the hands of a Karen craftsman. These pieces are not usually hallmarked in any way, but we can guarantee their origins.
