Xauv- Silver Necklace

Xauv- Silver Necklace This is a Hmong traditional jewelry wear. Long ago the Hmong woman will sewn or decorate their clothing/jewelry with the ancient Hmong language in the forms of symbols. However as time progressed the meaning of the symbols have been forgotten. Still today, the designs can still be found on clothing as a form of decoration or cultural self identity.
