'My name is Achara and my husband is Withaya, the head of our team. At first we created our unique products by ourselves. Then we learned that the hill tribe people of northern Thailand had wonderful silversmith skills, but that most of their jewelry is not considered marketable. So we decided to work in close association with them. We would help them improve their handcrafting skills and establish a quality control system that would enhance their centuries-old traditional methods. Our mission is to create unique designs in great quality silver jewelry as well as to preserve Thai and hill tribe cultures. I hope that you will be satisfied with our products and also be happy to participate in helping the hill tribe people.'

I have a 7 1/4 inch wrist and it fits nicely. The length was as listed at 7.5 inchs so I have some wiggle room. The details on the dragon are very articulated, from the face to the scales they come to life in 3D splendor, the mark of an experienced and talanted craftsman. The body is a study, but flexable box weaved chain. I am amazed it has not sold out! But then again I found it by accedent as it did not display with the other pieces from the area. The price is beyond a deal it is a gift, and I am grateful to have this in my collection. I have been looking for a Dragon braclette for a long time, and now the quest is over.Read More
I love this bracelet so much that once I put it on, I never took it down. LITERALLY! It's stunning!!! Keep in mind the sizing and what it really means: it is a SMALL bracelet and suitable only if you are very petite or for a young girl.Read More
I returned this bracelet because I didn't like the chain part or the way the bracelet looks when hooked together.Read More
This bracelet really is a beauty. It is the second piece I have bought from Thailand (Novica). As far as craftsmanship it can't be beat. They also use a great grade of sterling .925 . You CAN tell the difference. This just shines. Be careful when reading the reviews for the Novica jewelry. I have noticed people giving lower ratings simply because of the long wait to recieve it. It does take a while to arrive but most good things do.Read More
I absolutely LOVE this bracelet! It is 100 times better than I ever expected. This is no surprise because I've ordered from this merchant before and I am 100% satisified with everything that I have pruchased from them every time! From reading the reviews on the bracelet, I was a little worried about the size and fit but it's perfect.Read More
Very high quality. Runs a little large but works very well when wearing with my other sterling bracelets.Everyone asks where they can purchase this piece.Read More
I purchased the ring and did not read anything about it, except for cost. It turned out to be too small, hard to latch/hook, and I wound up giving it away to a friend who adores anything dragon. I would not buy this product or this artist/brand again. Not happy.Read More
This bracelet is really a beautifully crafted piece of art. The detail and the craftsmanship makes the bracelet look like it's worth a lot more then what I paid for it. I just got it today and loved it so much I don't want to take it off. The size and the weight is perfect. The two dragon heads are not bulky at all and goes perfectly with the rest of the bracelet body. My only complaint is the way the clasp is made. If they would have just made the end part of the clasp curving in then it probably wont catch onto things. The same goes for those spikes on top of the dragon head, they tend to catch on to things as well. I guess that makes two complaint then. Other then that, I really love this bracelet and is considering purchasing another one.Read More
If you like dragons and silver - this is a great bracelet for you. Well constructed with good detail. I think that it is unisex - so that's a bonus also!Read More
A very well made bracelet. I just wish that I knew it was so small before I made the purchase. Lost money on the return I don't have large wrists but this was pretty small for me.Read More
