About Miao Ethnic Group and Its Jewelry:
The Miao people - an ethnic group from southwest China, known for their beautiful decorative embroidery and metalwork, which has made its way into the mainstream in the form of amazing Miao-style hair jewelry. Miao craftsmen and artists developed their skills in relative isolation from other metal arts, which led to some techniques and stylings that are not seen elsewhere. Miao metalwork includes two major types: in real silver or in "Miao Silver", which is actually cupronickel, an alloy of nickel and copper. Real silver pieces are usually made of pure 99% silver, which is in its original silver white color, and the finished pieces are very soft. "Miao silver" pieces, however, usually are applied with dark tone to achieve an antique look. In modern days, Miao craftman uses chemicals to oxidize the piece, or use plant ash to dust the surface of metalwork (- same technique has been seen on some Tibetan jewelry and crafts. Such color filler can be washed off easily with soap if not desired. ), then cleanse the unwanted color to bring out depth and emphasize the patterns.
