Reach for this Hill Tribe silver coiled spacer bead to give your designs a touch of gorgeous texture. All of our Hill Tribe silver products are genuine and hand-made. 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 the unique and wonderful styles.
