This Hill Tribe silver spacer bead is shaped like a small tube and displays a flattened granulation pattern. Use this tube when you want your focal beads to be separated with small silver accents. These spacers are perfect for necklaces, bracelets, earrings and anklets. Mix and match components for a bold look. Freshwater pearls, Swarovski crystals and wood beads all look great with fine silver products. Hill Tribe Silver from Thailand is being featured in the current bead magazines. These items are made by the Karen Hill Tribe in northern Thailand using traditional tribal methods passed down from generation to generation. Purchasing these silver items helps sustain a traditional craft and provides the Karen people with a reliable source of income. The silver content in our Hill Tribes silver beads and pendants is typically 95-99%, even higher than sterling (92.5%). This higher silver content is softer and therefore easier to shape into all the unique and wonderful styles. On close inspection you will notice that no two pieces are exactly alike, attesting to the handmade nature of these beautiful pieces.

Love using these Hill Tribe Silver beads for long necklaces. Mix in semi-precious stones & pearls for your unique design. Wear several 30"-36" necklaces together for a great look.
