Achara presents a sensational bracelet that adapts design motifs from Thailand's hill tribes. The narrow silver cuff is crafted by hand.
.925 Sterling silver
Achara is not only a talented artisan she is also a kind, dedicated businesswoman. Her workshop has 25 full-time employees and she hires hundreds of part-time silversmiths. Her part time employees are hill tribe artisans who struggle to survive. To ensure that these artisans have enough income to live on; Achara continually orders and pays in advance for their silverwork. 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 Thai culture. Many artisans are 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.
I love my new bracelet. I have a gold mantra bracelet my daughter bought for me that I wanted a silver one to go with. This one looks great next to it!
