What are items under the Silver filter made of?
Our silver collection contains items that vary in their purity ranging from “fine” silver (95% - 99%) as in our Thai Hill Tribe and Israeli collections, to sterling silver (92.5%), and coin silver which is difficult to ascertain silver content especially in older tribal pieces. We label appropriately only those products that we are certain of what their silver content is.
What will I receive if I add my email address to your mailing list?
You will receive early notification of special promotions, and when we add new collections to our shop. We know your inbox can fill up fast so we will keep our emails to a minimum, once a month or so. Also, you can follow us on Instagram and Facebook.

How is Hermon these days? How can I get in touch with him?
Thanks for asking! Hermon is now 96 and is starting to feel his age. He has good days and not so good days but his spirit remains strong. His nephew makes sure he is well taken care of with a host of friends, neighbors, and caregivers looking after him. Since Hermon doesn’t do email these days you can send us a note at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will make sure it reaches him. He loves to hear from old friends and clients especially if you send along photos of yourself and/or beads from the old shop!
As time goes on we will include a page on our site where you can leave your memories and, we hope, reconnect with the community that Hermon and Yone created through the years.
