1) Embroidered Silk Earrings

These unique earrings were made by a Hmong woman artisan in Laos. Hmongs are an important ethnic group in Laos. Traditionally they use embroidery as a form of decoration on clothing to make it bright and beautiful.  From a young age, Hmong girls learn how to sew and copy motifs from their mothers and grandmothers. As they grow older, the embroidery skills that the girls acquire through their female elders serve to make them more attractive marriage partners. Girls with impressive embroidery skills are admired for their potential ability to sew beautiful clothes for their future husband and family members.

These beautiful earrings are a sample of the detailed embroidery skills at which these women excel. The delicate silk canvas only adds to the one-of-a-kind specialness that these earrings exude.
