Thailand Handicrafts items have been handmade with care and attention to detail. Fine Karen Silver jewelry parts start out as mini silver beads, which are then melted and modeled into beautiful designs that have been inspired by the natural surroundings and daily lives of the Hill tribe Silversmiths. We then select only the finest pieces and distribute them to you.
The marvelous silver jewelry parts have been handcrafted using sustainable and traditional techniques that have been passed down through families, generation after generation. What started off as a Royal Project to overcome the Opium Epidemic in Thailand around the 1960’s to 1970’s, is now a treasured art form that the Karen Hill tribes use to continue on their independent family businesses. In addition, the fact that fine silver is 98 to 99% pure allows wearers the opportunity to recycle the silver by melting the fine jewellery and turn it into something else, such as another design or other silver crafts!
Thailand Handicrafts partners with Independent Karen Hill Tribe artisans. They are generally families, where every member has learnt the handcrafting techniques since childhood; meaning that everyone has the opportunity to be involved in the family business. Each family is independent, and because of their unique life experiences; they tend to offer completely different jewellery designs.
We believe that what is made with love brings brilliant results. Silversmiths get the chance to experience the joys of putting their life’s inspirations and emotions into the creations. The families are also able to support their wellbeing and stick together as one because of the silver jewellery industry, and this shines through each individual silver piece, making it a truly Fine one of a kind expression of self.
