Thai Silver Stamped Beads

Availability: 3 in stock

28 inch long strand of fine silver handmade beads from the Karen Tribe of Thailand, otherwise known as Hilltribe. Hilltribe silver is about 95% pure silver and has a brushed finish. These are sometimes referred to as "collar beads". These are hollow, with a seam and a small flower stamping. I sometimes use these as crimp covers for micro crimps. Hole size is 1mm. The beads are 4mm tall x 3mm diameter, and looks like a barrel bead with a spacer on each end. Beads have a darker look because of the stamping, but can be polished with a polishing cloth. Approximately 200 beads per strand.
