Lapis & Silver Discs with Side Green Jade Disc

SKU: 1952
    • Green carved Burma jadeite disc (24 mm across x 9 mm deep);
    • Handmade Fair Trade silver discs made by the Karen hill tribes in Thailand;
    • These discs are known to the Chinese as Bi discs, a symbol of long life and harmony, so there is a lot of goodness flowing through this necklace
    • Karen hill tribe silver is nearly 98% pure silver; I mostly choose to use their silver because each piece is like a miniature bit of sculpture, individually crafted and created;
    • I know that artisans in Northern Thailand produce this unique silversmithing in small villages, involving whole families in the process; Their work is fairly paid, and as a result, their beads are much more expensive but a family is supported and wonderful beads and jewellery are produced in high quality silver;
    • Royal blue Lapis beads (10 mm);
    • Silver toggle clasp;
    • Length 46 cm (18")
