Nothing makes me happier than being able to combine my favorite materials: antique shards from Afghanistan, handmade Thai Hill Tribe silver beads, and semi precious stones, to create one-of-a-kind necklaces. Some of these treasures I've had for many years and it took a surprise find of two very dirty strings of Jasper beads to make it all come together. It's surprising what a good cleaning can unearth.

I just love these ancient pieces of Afghani ceramic shards especially the ones with lots of ancient patina. There is something special about old beads and shards, don't you think? I love how the colors have faded and I can't help but wonder who or what caused all those wonderful imperfections. It is hard to come by information but the vendors tell me that farmers find these shards in their fields and that they can be anywhere from 100 to 2000 years old.

A little bit About Hill Tribe Silver:
There is something special about silver beads made by the Karen Hill Tribe people and I have been buying them now for many, many years. Mostly, I like the idea that I help support a way of life, but more importantly I like that my purchases provide the Karen families with a much needed income. The Karen take their inspiration from nature and each piece is unique and handcrafted. The slight imperfections provide a wonderful charm only found in handmade items. Silver used by the Karen is more pure (95-99%) than sterling silver (92.5%). The higher the silver content, of course, the softer and easier it is to work with. Karen silver will retain its shine much longer and won’t need to be polished as often as sterling silver.

Thanks for stopping by. Enjoy!
