This is an authentic traditional Hill Tribe pendant from the Miao (Hmong) people of Southeast Asia.
This type of pendant is traditionally worn to "lock in" your spirits. In the traditional Hmong culture, it is believed that people have eleven spirits, and when one or more of these spirits leaves the body then it causes bad luck and misfortune, or bad health. Wearing this necklace is believed to keep your spirits within you for protection and good luck.
Made by hand in the villages along the border of Laos and China and personally collected by us during our travels there. Made with silver and brass. The pendant is about 1.5 inches wide. Comes with your choice of chain.
A wonderful artifact of traditional Hmong craftsmanship and artistic heritage!
Our mission is to make the world a better place.
