Thai Silver Nests
These gorgeous silver beads originate in Thailand and were produced by the Karen Hill tribe. The Karen are renowned for their silversmithing skills, and famous for producing high-quality silver beads (92.5-99.9% pure) and jewelry.
The patterning and beautiful shape of these beads is a testament to those wonderful silversmithing skills. I've strung two 4mm, high quality faceted pink cubic zirconia beads on fine silver and nestled them through the silver beads. where they are anchored above and below with other silver beads and caps. They are hung from Bali silver ear wires.
These earrings are just under 2 inches from the top of the Bali silver ear wires to the bottom of the fine silver balled headpin.
