Seeing our customer’s creative handy work make us want to do more. We know the market is down right now and this is true not only for us but also for all of our customers. We know because you are ordering much, much less than before. Sales are down for everyone but this is no excuse for us to stop thinking of how we can continue to help you, our customers and the backbone of our business, the hill tribe artisans. We’ve worked with the Karen hill tribe at Na Sai village for nearly 10 years and just recently went on a trip to show our support and check in since it has been nearly a year since our last visit. What we saw reaffirms our notion that many silversmiths have now moved on to concentrate on their farms and plantations. The younger adults, particularly men have moved into bigger cities to find jobs to earn income for their family. During the big silver rush, many Karens were deceived by the constant workload that came about and sold property and plantations. These families are now struggling to get by as silversmithing is now a small portion of the income flow at Na Sai Karen Hill Tribe Village. It is a sad story we too did not expect to write about. More on this very soon as this blog is dedicated to Sacred Earth Jewelry and we want to keep like so.
Thank you for all your support Sacred Earth. We wish you all the best with your inspiring jewelry designs and hope to continue being your hill tribe silver supplier for many year to come. God bless!
