Beautiful Violet Opal rondelles and barrel shaped gemstones are mixed with Amethyst and 24k Gold Vermeil Style Karen Hill Tribe beads. The components are all 14k Gold Filled. Such a pretty color on a handmade piece that looks like Spring.
The Karen Hill Tribe of Thailand use primitive methods and tools passed down from generations. Each piece is handmade and the silver is a more pure silver content, 97%-99%, than Sterling Silver (95%). They also come in 24k Gold and Rose Gold Vermeil over the Silver. I love the tradition, heritage, and skill that goes into these beads.
