Original Message:   Re: Prakeuam silver beads
Hi Nishedha:

These ones are quite nice. The beads are made in Khwao Si Narin one of the handicraft villages in Surin province in the northeast of Thailand. I think the village was originally famous for its silk, which is wonderful, but a popular silver-smithing industry has developed there too in recent times. Traditionally the silver beads (luk pa keuam), as their name implies were intended as decoration for women's dress, but now necklaces are produced in quite large quantities. Only a few are of genuinely high quality.

To be honest, I think you're more likely to find genuinely antique silver in Chiang Mai.

Cheers,

Will
