Akha Bracelets (small)

At Caribou Jewellery we source a lot of our silver charms from Thailand's Northern Hill Tribes where silversmithing skills have been passed down from generation to generation.  In the 1980's the Hill Tribe people were given some assistance in setting up their silversmithing  businesses. Today they are self sufficient.

I have chosen to name these bracelets after the Akha Northern Hill Tribe.  The Akha are a shamanic group that share the ancient belief that nature is not distinguished from humankind. The Akha way includes every day rituals, animism (the idea that plants, animals and all natural phenomena possess a spiritual essence) , strong family values, shamanism and a deep spiritual connection with the earth.
