A gorgeous bracelet made by the Miao Hmong tribal people. Silver wire hand coiled into connecting swirls makes the base of the bracelet and a dragons head and tail are at either end. The dragons tongue connects to the tail, closing the bracelet.
Material: The metal is a mixture of silver and brass.
Dimensions: Approx. 7" (18 cm)
This is honestly one of my favorite pieces in my shop.
Symbolism: The Miao Hmong hill tribes believe that the silver from their mountains has the ability to keep away the evil spirits that bring misfortune. They traditionally wear their silver jewelry for good luck for themselves and their communities. The dragon is an important symbol of good luck, longevity, power and protection to the Hmong people. Many traditional Hmong pieces incorporate dragons such as this piece.
A gorgeous artifact of traditional Miao Hmong hill tribe silver craftsmanship and artistic heritage.
