Name: Hmong Single Fern Earrings
Hand-cut and embossed "Single fern fond" earrings traditionally worn by Black Hmong women in northern Vietnam. These earrings are completely handmade by Trang, a jeweler who lives in rural Lao Cai Province, and who makes jewelry for the local villages. The metal is white bronze (copper, tin, zinc), recycled from used jewelry; it will not tarnish and is strong, yet still pliant. A picture of Trang is included with your purchase.
Origins: Laio Cai Province, Vietnam
