Sterling Silver Laos Wrap Necklace
This long sterling silver necklace is completely handmade features 19 sterling silver beads covered in the Dog Phikoun Flower. Each bead is held together by woven silver. Wrap the silver necklace 2 or 3 times for multiple looks. The Dok Phikoun Flower is thought to assure good health and fortune. To create this flower, 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.
