Story Behind the Art: K.Thidarat (Jeab) grew up in Lamphun, in the northern province of Thailand, where there is a large cultural influence from surrounding hill tribes who are well known for their handmade crafts and jewelry. Jeab now lives in Bangkok, which is the capital of Thailand. She brought her knowledge and patience of making jewelry to the capital city and began displaying her skill in stores and markets. She has taught her family members back home to make some of the designs. Her creative designs and successful business model have brought income to the family while preserving the handcrafted traditions of her home town.

We love this necklace! Amazing rich colors from handmade stones. The artisan really outdid herself as you can really see the amount of detail and effort that was put into it. I'll definitely keep an eye out for more of this artisan's products!
This necklace is nice. It looks as it does in pictures & I decided to keep it, because it will go with many outfits. However, it's not a show stopper. The stones are small & not vibrant. I'm sure I'll get compliments; I'm just used to more bling from a necklace. It can also be a perfect gift.
