Miao Jewelry

Silver made 220g, 56*14cm (Miao nationality, in Gui-Zhou province). Used as a breast adornment for women. Hand made and adopts such techniques as casting, engraving, inlaying and wire drawing. Also an old jewelry of Miao nationility who living in South East China. Miao women wear a lot of silver jewelry on large festivals and their craft of silver are fantastic! However as plastic looks like silver and is verc heap, real silver jewelry is fading out from Miao people"s life.
