Hill Tribe Silver
Hill Tribe or Thai silver is hand-crafted by the Karen Hill Tribes of Thailand. It is rolled and hammered with primitive tools. They take great care with their designs, and they use stamps on many of the pieces. Because the pieces are handmade, the size and shape will vary a bit from piece to piece. Many of the designs are not stamped and are still created by hand. Though you'll see a variance in all Hill Tribe pieces, the slight differences in the work create an organic, unique look desirable to many beaders.
