This carved horn orchid pendant proves something can bloom from something hard. Tam, 24 years old, grew up in Van Phu Thuong Tin, where people do not have many traditional craft skills. Most people grow rice or they have to leave their family to go to a big city to get a job. Tam did not want to leave her small children for factory work and was blessed to meet Au Lac, who taught her how to make horn jewelry. Tam and the women in her artisan group love their jobs and are happy to put beauty into the world.

The natural pendant will vary in coloration from lighter to darker. Please let us choose for you.
