a couple times a year, a wholesale bead show comes to Minneapolis and I go...one of the reasons are these charms right here. thy're vintage Tibetan silver, fine silver, meaning, they have a higher silver content than sterling. and they’re old...like a hundred years or so. I love digging through the many bins that this vendor brings to find these little gems of history. by the time I’m done, my hands are like I’ve been playing in the dirt all day, and we’ll, I have...and loved every minute of it. don’t worry, I clean them up good when I get home so they’re ready for you. aren’t they great?!
