These delicate, handmade silver rounds, decorated with sinuous dragons, reflect the unique culture of the Miao people of southern China, one of China’s many minority groups. The ornate objects, once used as earrings, make a striking statement as petite sculptures mounted on custom stands. Silver jewelry, which has long held a special place in Miao culture, is characterized by intricate designs and delicate, complex motifs.
