I can not seem to locate the source for these particular silver over lac beads.
When I find them they are always these attractive, compete necklaces. From India somewhere I would imagine - but when and where?
Thank you for having a look!

i'm reminded of the silver beads that were being made in Thailand about 25 years ago-??
hoping someone will recognise them instantly and knows exact details..

I have these beads too, and they are Thai. I don't know much more, offhand.

These silver beads from Thailand are very collectable when antique.
Seller ID faqrun has been selling antique beads of this kind at Catawiki lately.

Search for: "Prakeuam or Sinarin silver beads".

Sizes range from really small to quite large. The one pictured is 13,7 x 18,2 mm.

Steve and Duangporn Dunning. They contracted with a village to produce these beads. I still have a shoe box full of them. High silver content (close to fine, IIRC) over some sort of resin fill. Duangporn used to assemble necklaces - this could be one of hers?
