Hill Tribes silver... limitless design potential! Incredible silver beads and findings created completely by hand in the remote mountain areas of Thailand. Made using centuries-old, traditional methods in distinctive Hill Tribes styling. These are made of a higher purity than 92.5% sterling silver. Because the actual range is 95-99% purity, these products are softer, have a whiter color and will not tarnish as readily as sterling silver. As these are wrought by hand, the sizes may vary slightly.
