This small Hill Tribe silver round pendant has a rustic ying yang design that is sure to give your necklaces, earrings and bracelets a gorgeous eastern touch. Thai beads and pendants are made by the Karen Hill Tribe in northern Thailand using traditional tribal methods passed down from generation to generation. Purchasing these Thai beads 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 unique and wonderful styles.
