"I am a jeweler from Northern Thailand. I grew up in a small rural town and really wanted to explore the world. After graduating with a degree in accounting, I was blessed with the opportunity to travel the world as part of an air crew for 30 years. I've been able to see so many places and meet different people and cultures around the world.
"I found my passion for jewelry art and teamed up with my family, who worked with silver. This has allowed me to combine my Thai identity with my life experiences to create an amazing collection of accessories.
"I didn't think I'd have a chance to create my own designs and it's been very fulfilling to see women look gorgeous, confident and elegant in my jewelry. I believe everyday outfits can be eye-catching and stylish with the right accessories.""
