Black and khaki lampworked beads, sterling silver wire and Hill Tribe beads and charms make this a unique and classic bracelet.
Lampwork beads are made by melting narrow rods of glass by hand over an open flame (usually a torch). The glass is wrapped aound a thin metal rod (a mandrel), which later becomes the hole through the bead. Many effects can be acheived through using various colors of glass and various techniques.
Hill Tribe beads are the name given to a style of handcrafted silver beads traditionally made by a number of groups in the region of northern Thialand. As in many other styles of traditional beadcraft that have become popularized, Hill Tribe type beads are now manufactured. Traditional Hill Tribe beads are each handcrafted in a tradition that is centuries old.
