(Grants Pass, Oregon)--Fire Mountain Gems and Beads®, America's Favorite Beading and Jewelry Supply Company®, unveils a new collection of beads, focals and findings from the Hill Tribes silversmiths of Thailand.

This new collection features a level of quality that can only be created by hand. Beads, focals, charms, earwires, clasps and drops are made from either fine silver, antiqued fine silver, silver-plated brass or silver-plated copper.

The Hill Tribes live in an area known as the Golden Triangle, where Thailand, Laos and Burma unite. Within these tribal villages, high-quality beads and components are handmade. Traditionally, the Hill Tribes primarily crafted beads and components using fine silver; recently they have adapted their craftsmanship to include more affordable plated brass and plated copper pieces, while keeping the original detail and craftsmanship.
