Her enchanting floral designs are derived from the natural colors and stone materials found abundantly in Thailand. She receives great support and aid from her family who help with her business. Her warm personality, creativity, and hard-work have helped her business grow.

Stainless Steel Wire
Thank you. Your feedback will help us create the best experience for our customers.
The memory wire really remembers and on certain outfits it feels more like a choker instead of an assemble piece. It's unique and very showy and different. That's what I look for in jewelry and this fit the bill.

Really, really pleased with this purchase. I wanted a necklace that would be noticeable, and this one is. It looks great with a black top and I've received many compliments. I enjoy looking for jewelry on overstock, because I never know what I will find.

I purchased this as a gift for my grandaughter who is 14yr old. She saw this on the website when I was looking at the item and thought it was beautiful. When it arrived, I agree that it is beautiful, however, she is too young to wear it. It would be appropriate for an adult. (Ordering this for her was my fault. Just because she loved it, is not a reason to purchase it, but being my only grandaughter----welll, you get the picture). I am planning for it to be given to an adult friend. The only thing I was disappointed about (just slightly) is that the picture makes it appear as black, but in person it is more of a gray.
Did the color match the color displayed onsite? lighter in person than picture
