The fresh frond of a young fern slowly unfurls in this cuff bracelet presented by Achara. It is hand-crafted from high-quality silver by talented hill tribe silversmiths and features oxidized accents.
Achara is not only a talented jewelry artisan but is also a kind, dedicated entrepreneur. Her workshop has several full-time workers, and she provides work for a number of part-time silversmiths. Her part time collaborators are hill tribe artisans who struggle to survive. To ensure that these artisans have enough income to live on; Achara continually orders their silverwork and pays for it in advance. 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 by Thai culture. Many artisans have been 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.
"Lovely, Even Better In Person!"
So excited, I received the beautifully designed 'Fern Wrap' bracelet made by Achara, from Thailand. Arrived in a cute little handmade box too. This bracelet is a nice weighted, quality silver piece. I was worried it might not fit, I'm kinda big boned, but if you play with it, it easily slips right through the palm part of your hand to the wrist. I think this is my new main stay daily bracelet. Love it! ????????? Achara

'Fern Wrap', .950 silver, cuff bracelet needs to be put on as mentioned in a previous review, over the palm because it is a solid, strong bracelet that would be very difficult to bend to open and close. I have a wrist that measures 6.25" and when the bracelet is on it hangs in an attractive position and does not fall off. I wear a size medium glove and if the hand is larger it would not be possible to take the bracelet off comfortably. Thai Hill Tribe designs do not have a high shine, but this bracelet does reflect light. When received could see the back and the front in detail, seeing the entire design as a whole, makes the bracelet look better than the photo. I also bought a ring, 'Thai Sunbeams', when worn with the 'Fern Wrap' bracelet, the total look is a knock out! The .950 rated silver ups the price, but still good value. Unique, ethnic, quality look. Well made. To be worn with casual and semi-casual outfits. Happy with purchase.
