This bold wrap ring is presented to us by Achara of Thailand. Artisans of the Karen Hill Tribe hand-stamp a circular motif on the surface surrounded by a lightly hammered design, making this ring a unique addition to any outfit.
Achara is not only a talented jewelry artisan but is also a kind, dedicated entrepreneur. Her workshop has several full-time workers, and she provides work for a number of part-time silversmiths. Her part time collaborators are hill tribe artisans who struggle to survive. To ensure that these artisans have enough income to live on; Achara continually orders their silverwork and pays for it in advance. She does this even though she may have no orders for their work at the time. She is able to do this because of her Novica customers who provide a stable, steady income for her workshop.
Achara's workshop uses traditional silversmithing techniques to produce centuries-old designs as well as contemporary pieces inspired by Thai culture. Many artisans have been trained in her workshop. They learn not only traditional jewelry making but also how to apply modern quality control standards.
Achara's children are of university age. She currently pays for her daughter's higher education and, next year, she will also pay for her son's.
The Women's Empowerment badge is awarded to female artisans or artisan groups that are led by women.
If you are trying to find that bold ring that chants beauty, beauty beauty....look no further Achara is so talented and has created yet another enchanting piece in "The Silver Sun." I also purchased the "Hill Tribe Sun." I wanted a silver cuff style ring, that I could wear on my middle finger and that made my hand pop with a sassy kind of elegance.....and so I had to buy two of Achara's cuff rings each unique in their own way. With the silver sun ring the design focuses on the front and the Hill Tribe Sun not only has design on front but on the back where the cuffs meet....what a fantastic idea n creation. I luv how the ring doesn't slide around, it literally hugs my finger securely and with comfort. Money well spent, truly a gorgeous style Achara thx U!!!!!
