That’s in the mountainous regions of the South of China where I left on meeting of the Miao and Dông people .
In reality, a multitude of ethnic minorities is included under the name of Miao .Each ethnic group differs by their clothes and their traditional jewels, as well as by them colourful folk costumes.
There are officially fifty six groups of Miao, unofficially he could have there more two hundred under groups according to the ethnologists, scattered through Yunnan, Guizhou, Gwangsi, Shishuan, the North of the Thailand ( Hmongs people), Laos and Vietnam.
Going thought villages to villages, I was immediately seduced by their various styles, their jewels and the sharpness of their embroidery work.
I suggest you discovering in this website contemporary jewels of Miao style , made according to traditional techniques by local craftsmen, inspired by old patterns , and that still worn by the Miao women nowadays .The jewels are made of tribal silver ,a mix of silver (at the level of 20 %, but it can vary according to the models) and white copper.
There is no industrial production of these jewels.
