This Hill Tribe silver leaf bead cap is one of the most realistic we have ever seen. The etchings are so precise and the three leaves are all perfectly detailed. Pair these bead caps with our Cat's Eye Round Beads for a stunning design. Try the green ones for a natural look. 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.

Lovely bead capsAugust 18, 2009
I love these bead caps! They're so beautiful. I wish they were a bit cheaper, but they're still quite stunning. They're rather big, though - only use them with large beads.
