Awesome tribal bangle with two dragons, symbolizing strength and protection. Made by the Miao Hmong tribal people of the border between China and Laos. The dragon is an important symbol of strength for the Miao Hmong hill tribe people, and silver believed to be a protective element as it is believed that the silver from their mountains keeps evil spirits away.
Size: Adjustable. Well made to adjust to any wrist size. 7.5" (19 cm) inner circumference. Material: The metal is a mixture of silver and brass.
Absolutely gorgeous. This piece has received a lot of attention since we brought it back!
We collected this hill tribe silver vintage cuff while traveling through tribal villages in Southeast Asia in October. This specific piece came from a Miao (a subgroup of the Hmong) village in Southwest China near Laos.
Handmade by the Hmong tribal silversmiths with silver and brass, traditional of the Hmong Hill Tribes in the region. Inner circumference: About 9.4" ( 23.8 cm) The bracelet is adjustable - the two lily flowers move apart to make it bigger (can be adjusted to be made much wider). Wear as a bracelet or as an arm cuff!
An amazing attention-grabbing exotic ethnic jewelry piece with fine craftsmanship and excellent quality, exemplary of the artistic heritage and culture of the Hmong Hill Tribe people.
The Hmong Miao people are known for creating exquisite pieces of jewelry that utilize aspects of nature and local history. This charming bracelet features a simple feather that curves up around the wrist while worn.
Hatch marks angled in one direction as well as a series of tiny dots along the “spine” of the feather are two distinct features that give a more rustic appeal to this piece. One of the more compelling elements of this bracelet can be found at its base; there are two beautifully curved “S” shapes that curl delicately below the wrist, adding a touch of elegance.
Dimensions: This bracelet has a 6” circumference and can bend to fit different sizes.
Really cool round tribal hill tribe pendant from the Hmong (also known as "Miao") tribes. Made by hand in the villages along the border of Laos and China and personally collected by us during our travels there. This was traditionally worn as a gauge earring, we just soldered a ring on it so it can be worn as a pendant.
The Hmong believe that silver has the ability to influence spirits, and this type of jewelry plays a very important spiritual and cultural role in their society.
Made with silver and brass. The pendant is about 1 inch long.
Comes with your choice of chain or cord
A wonderful artifact of traditional Hmong craftsmanship and artistic heritage!

AWESOME spiked Anshun bracelet from the Miao Hmong hill tribes.
This piece was made by the Hmong (miao) hill tribe people in Southeast Asia and brought back by us during our travels throughout China, Laos and Vietnam.
The Hmong in the villages we traveled to believe that silver scares away evil spirits. The dramatic spikes are actually meant to get attention from evil spirits to keep them away, keeping the bearer of this bracelet and his/her family safe from harm.
On either side of the spiked tribal bracelet are faces. The faces are there to make the spirits believe that they are being watched even though they are invisible to the human eye.
7.5" (19 cm) inner circumference. Bends to adjust to almost any wrist size.

Each segment is made from delicately wrapped silver wire. The metal is a mixture of silver and brass, metal traditionally used by this tribe.
