AKHA 5

Traditional Akha earrings, from the hill tribes, have gotten a new use in this dramatic necklace. The fossil symbolizes the wheel of life, the ups and downs on the path of all living creatures. The silver, in JAANA jewelry, is 92.5% pure sterling silver, all hand made by tribal silver smiths, and polished with rice husks to give it an attractive antique sheen. The workers still use tools that have been handed down for generations, and their work methods have remained much the same throughout the centuries.
