Its history: The Miao people are one of the largest ethnic minorities in China living in tight-knit communities in Guizhou province. Handmade silver jewelry is a well-known craft of this people, traditionally made by men. In addition to being a cultural tradition indicating belonging to a clan, these jewels represent the wealth of young women before they get married. Originally in silver, today they are made from white copper to make them lighter and more affordable.
