18kt Gold & Sterling Silver PSTM Myanmar Fish and Mermaid Necklace on Cord

£6,145.00

Stone: Silver

 

 

A beautifully made silver articulated fish in the lake Inle style from Shan state in Myanmar.This lovely fish has moonstone eyes and is accompanied by a small gold mermaid. I imagine a story of a fish and his friendship with the delightful mermaid, swimming in the depths of the lake and watching the fisherman in their narrow boats at dawn throwing their nets into the water.

 

 

Drawing on ancient Burmese symbols, Buddhist iconography, and the natural world of this beautiful south East Asian country for inspiration, Pippa has been working with Turquoise Mountain Myanmar for years. Each piece is hand made in Myanmar by artisans trained in traditional goldsmith techniques. Providing meaningful livelihood skills and much needed employment in one of Asia’s poorest countries.

Tin Win

Like many of the most renowned goldsmiths in Myanmar, Tin Win comes from Ramree Island, Rakhine State. He grew up immersed in the goldsmith life, with a thin line between the workshop and the playground. It was the wish of his parents that he became a goldsmith, and he moved to Yangon in 1996 to study under the master U Kyaw Than.
