Story Behind the Art:
Thailand's Sasina began by crafting her own jewelry: 'I love jewelry so much that the need to adorn my body with it is mandatory. While studying at the university I began creating accessories. Initially I made what I liked and sold some to friends. But I started to receive orders and ended up spending more time filling orders than creating new designs.'

I was a little disappointed that the necklace was not as pretty as pictured. I also wanted it to wear on a cruise but it did not arrive in time. I do like it and will keep and enjoy wearing it.Read More
It is a pretty piece. Very delicate though. Nice for special occasion, but not for every day. It is put together with a sparkly thread.Read More
Very pretty, well made, delicate. Wear on special occasions or with jeans and black or pastels colors. Very good quality coming from Thailand. Got earrings to match. Really love them.Read More
The necklace is of pretty good quality. Remember It is a costume jewelry piece. It has the pearls and then these pieces of clear plastic beads. It has a nice look on--a full necklace of beads but at the same time has a lightness to it. I really like it and would recommend it.Read More
When I kept looking at this necklace, I somehow thought there was some green intermingled with the color, not, but it is a lovely necklace. My preference is a longer length, and I thought the extender might do that, it doesn't, so I will more than likely give it as a gift. Nothing at all wrong with it, just things I didn't catch.Read More
I just purchased five of these necklaces as bridemaids gifts for my upcoming June 26, 2010, wedding. I promptly received them in the mail and am MORE than impressed with not only the beautiful craftsmanship and quality of the pearls, but also the stunning wrapping & presentation. They came individually wrapped in uniquely designed boxes, along with a beautiful chocolate brown booklet in each box that describes how the necklace was made and the meaning behind the stones & design. My very skeptic fiance was even blown away at how great these necklaces look for their great price. I 100% recommend this item and Overstock.com.....the service was prompt and true to what I expected when purchasing the items.Read More

The wrapping materiel for the piece is very delightful. The necklace is pretty. The pearls are big. It is a little bit short.Read More

How to Care for Amber Jewelry
