HOW IT ALL WORKS
There are a number of photos in the slideshow above that show you a slice of village life among the hilltribe people of Thailand. One of the villages we visited is the longneck hilltribe of northern Thailand in Chiang Rai just over the border from Burma. The neck rings the women and girls wore to me were the epitome of personal adornement…now thats a jewelry commitment!!!!
"The land of the giraffe women as polish explorer Vitold De Golish called it, lies in eastern Burma plateau Dimpled by a terraced, paddy-filled valley. Here lives Padang , a tribe of about 7000 members.Legend claims that the brass rings protect the women from tiger bites. But actually the practice of wearing them helps maintain individual and tribal indentity. Rings worn on arms and legs may weigh a women Down with and additional 30 pounds of brass. Since leg Coils hamper walking. The women waddle.
A second village outside of Chiang Mai, a few hours south was so quaint, perched in the hills, with the most incredible view from the mountain tops. A large community garden was filled with unique veggies, herbs and medicinal flowers.
It was wonderful the locals let visitors wander in their personal garden as I'm sure there are some who abuse the priviledge. There were very few in this village this day so a perfect opportunity for stunning photographs. I hope this gives you a bit more of a feel for where this exquisite collection of jewelry I am offering comes from. It's extremely hard for me to not want to keep every single one of them as each has a very personal connection to this stunning country I adore!!!!
