Hill Tribe Silver
Welcome to the Karen Hill Tribe of Northern Thailand! Hidden deep inside the clouded mist of the northern Thailand hills, the Karen people have been creating beautiful silver components for generations. The material they use is a fine silver more pure than sterling. The entire process (except for one or two machines) is completely reliant upon the production of the people. Browse our collection, and your purchase will help ensure the livelihood of the tribe and keep silver smiths in business for years to come.
Greetings from Bali! Enjoy your Bali bead shopping amongst the fragrant flowers and relaxing beaches. Our Bali beads are hand-made out of sterling silver by Indonesian artists. These beads are authentic, and you can feel it in each one you touch. Feel the centuries-old stone temples inside the textured surfaces; feel the humid air from the forest inside the creviced designs. Because each bead is handmade, each one is unique in appearance.
