Incredible example of high quality silver craftsmanship and artistic skill in this original Miao Hmong choker necklace.
6 delicately bundled heavy gauge silver wire wrapped into a concentric floral pattern. The wire is not sterling silver, it is actually 40% silver 60% brass, traditional to the tribal people and area from which it came.
Circa 1950's. Covered with a rich dark patina. Most people like the patina as it shows its age and silver content. But it may also be easily cleaned to bring back its original shine.
Silver/copper is quite soft. This choker necklace is well-made to be able to bend and adjust to any size.
