The Hill Tribe silver flower stamped puffed coin exhibits the beautiful craftsmanship of the Karen Hill Tribe. Each round bead features a flower design stamped into the center with six small starbursts stamped onto the outside edge. The beautifully intricate design is featured on both sides of the coin, making it doubly appealing. Due to their highly detailed faces, these beads work wonderfully both as spacers and focal pieces in your jewelry designs. 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.
