Thailand's Tipa works with the skills she learns from her family, designing and crafting this magical beaded bracelet. She teams up with Karen hill tribe artisans, alternating bubble-like silver beads with black onyx stones and cultured pearls. The bracelet closes with a clasp of sterling silver.
In the Andes, the Land of the Four Corners, mountains are sacred. So is culture. The Nazca lines, the Wari glyphs, the Quipu knots and the complex multi-colored textiles of the Incas are all recorded and live on the work of contemporary Peruvian artisans.
