Story Behind the Art
Born to a silversmith father, Lai was exposed to the craft of jewelry making at a very early age. With knowledge and experience gained through this environment, Lai began making and designing jewelry of her own at an early age. By 14, Lai's aptitude and skill had blossomed and she was able to turn her jewelry making talent into a business for her family. Now, at only 24, Lai's flair and creativity continues to mature. 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.

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.Read More
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.Read More
I am amazed at how much this necklace matches the picture! Without being worn it sits in a circle which is approximately 4 inches in diameter. When worn on the neck it will fit to any size neck possible whether your neck is big or small! The black shells have a wonderful rainbow color to them and lay flat on one's neck. I expected it to be heavy since the beading is strung with black wire but it is surprisingly light but still sturdy. I love it!Read More

I wanted a necklace that was predominately black.
I am hoping it is as beautiful in real life as it is in the picture
I purchased the pearl flower necklace already. I want this in my collection. Got a lot of compliments on that necklace. I know it will be the same for this necklace. have to watch out because the memory wire was not strong enough to hold it around your neck. kept falling off. I had to add a lobster clasp to it.
More for everyday wear than a couple of the other pieces I purchased.
