Name: Trang's Black Hmong Necklace
Trang makes these traditional Hmong necklaces all by hand at his home. Each chain link is carefully curved, smoothed, and cut to create the double chain hanging from the wide, eight-sided toque with finely embossed ears. Two swords hang from the wearer's left side that have been equally handmade, hand embossed on both sides, and attached to the chain for their protective powers. The necklace comes with photos of Trang creating his jewelry.
