It's not hard to see why we've named this Hill Tribe silver bead the crazy daisy coin bead. Each bead is covered in daisies which have been stamped into both of its silver surfaces. These daisies give the beads a whimsical, springtime feel. These coin beads work well as both spacer beads and focal pieces in your jewelry creations. These beads are both extremely lightweight and incredibly durable, making them perfect for necklaces, bracelets or any other bead project. 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.
