Karen Silver Lacewing Butterfly Pendant

Fine, swooping lines flow outwards on the curve of the wings. Tiny speed lines along the outer edges give the illusion of swiftness and movement. The black silk cord seems to hold it back as it tries to escape. This intricate piece is typical of the jewellery handmade by the Karen hill tribes from the mountainous region of Chiang Mai, Northern Thailand.

The Karen hill tribes’ skill and craftsmanship at making fine and distinctive silver jewellery goes back centuries. They painstakingly roll, shape and engrave their jewellery by hand, using traditional methods with the simplest of tools. The Karen people work with silver much purer than sterling silver (92.5%). Karen jewellery has a distinctive weight, matte sheen, and satin finish that only comes from using such fine quality silver. Read more about the Karen Hill Tribe
