Hello, My husband and I are Canadian. We have been living and travelling in China for almost five years. We love to go to local markets when we travel. I love the smells, the energy, and the excitement of everyone rushing around selling their amazing goods. After being in Asia for as few months we both fell in love with the Tibetan jewelry. We have now started as website selling our favourite handmade Tibetan silver jewelry, called Tibetan Empress. We hand pick each piece from local markets or from the craftsmen themselves. All of the pieces are made with Tibetan silver and many have atones such as turquoise, coral, tigers eye, agate and jade. Please take as look for yourself www.TibetanEmpress.com. We hope you love this jewelry as much as we do.
