Beautiful Sterling Silver Laos Necklace
This beautiful handmade sterling silver necklace features 79 flowers woven into a beautiful V shaped necklace. The Laos Dok Phikoun flower is the centerpiece to this work of art and is thought to assure good health and fortune. To create this necklace, sterling silver is hand run through a flattener until it becomes a very fine silver wire. Next the fine wire is run through a spindle to create the petals to the flower. As the center of the flower is being melted, the spiral has to be uniformly cut by hand to be heated and adjoined with a very tiny silver beaded centerpiece.
