Little Mountain Tribes Earrings
There is great ethnic diversity among the peoples of Southeast Asia. Centuries have seen different customs in jewellery, from horns of wild cattle to copious silver jewellery. Among some ethnic groups, the shine of silver, rather than gold, expresses prestige and beauty and they prefer ornaments of impressive proportions. The finest metalworkers would often use notions of cosmology, such as dragons, butterflies, and birds to engrave their jewellery with stylised symbols.
eThnoPur's small silver earrings are an interpretation of the traditional torques used by the Mountain People. Delicate and more modest in proportions, they make for a great daily companion.
