Miao Cultural Handmade. Embroidery with Silver Necklace. Single Tier. Guizhou Province. China
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 single tier necklace handcrafted in silver (and other metals such as copper, cobalt, nickel) with a window of stunning embroidery work. Stand not included.
