The Hill Tribes of Northern Thailand are a group of six different tribal groups that live in the Golden Triangle, where Thailand, Laos, and Burma meet. Although each of the tribes has its own distinctive ways and are all very remote, each tribe has silversmiths who handcraft each item from .999 pure silver. Each item is unique because of this handcrafting process, and the use of these beads helps support the continuation of their indigenous culture.
Although I have done my best to photograph the color of this item accurately, please allow for variations in monitor settings and for the fact that the photo is taken under high powered lights.
