Handmade traditional Qiang silver bracelet, weight: 38.65 grams
Solid fine silver hand-carved with floral design. This piece is very interesting because it is made by Qiang People but its pattern is flower from Tibet area. However, this is not surprising to locals living in Qiang area. Qiang Ethnic Group is mainly concentrating in the areas between Sichuan province and Tibet. In fact, There are many Tibetans living in Sichuan province just as Qiang People. These two ethinic groups have been living peacefully together in the same area for long time. Many of their culturs are somehow mixed together. This bracelet is just one of many examples. It simply brings best parts of different cultures together.
All pieces are handmade silver from Qiang ethnic minority village workshop.
