Karen Silver Large Swallowtail Butterfly Pendant

Handsome and bold…that’s the only way to describe this marvelous butterfly pendant. Its beautifully sculpted wings, fastidiously carved and chased, gives it depth and gravity. Balanced perfectly by the black-brown silk cord from which it floats. This wonderful piece is a marvellous example of the artistry practised 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
