Click the photo above for a larger version and more pictures



Extraordinary Miao embroidery is peculiar to the Miao ethnic group inhabiting Southwest China’s Guizhou Province, Zhinjin County.  Much of the embroidery work goes hand-in-hand with the silver handicraft and adornments.  Most of it is bold, expressive and full of symbolism.


In many cases, preparing for festivals and ceremonials, artisans will not only form and craft the silver pieces (headdresses,  necklaces, bracelets, and other body ornaments) but they will blend sliver threads into their embroidery hand work.


This is a double tier necklace handcrafted in silver (and other metals such as copper, cobalt, nickel) with windows of stunning embroidery work.


Stand not included.
