     Story Behind the Art:

    To create my jewelry, I like to sit in the middle of the materials – colorful stones and pearls in many shapes… Nature is a reference for my designs.

    My name is Nareerat Tansuwansophon but you can call me Lek. I was born into a Catholic family in Trang province, in southern Thailand. My mother passed away after I was born. I am the youngest child of six siblings and have three brothers and two sisters. My family members are merchants. My house was next to the church so I did many activities at the church. My family believed in God, just as I do. 

    In 1982, after I graduated from grade nine, I moved to Bangkok. There I was a secretarial major at the Convert of the Holy Infant Jesus School, where I studied for three years. Then I worked as a buyer at a foreign trading agency until 1992 when an enamel company asked me to work in their marketing department. I thought it was a good opportunity so I worked there for three years before I quit to get married. 

    My hobby is origami, folding papers into many shapes. In 1996, my first daughter was born. I named her Ice. While I was pregnant, I spent all of my time doing origami. It made me get better and appreciate art. After I had some time off for being pregnant, I went back to work for another three years until I had cute twin sons in 2000. They are H and OAT. I quit working again when I had the twins and devoted all my time to them. 

    When I moved to a new house about a year later, I was so bored. I wanted to have my own small business so I looked for products at the big Bangkok market. I liked several kinds of jewelry so I bought some of them to sell at my sister's shop. The feedback was great, so I decided to design my own jewelry in 2004. 

    I prefer to design and craft the jewelry myself. I wanted to make something different from what you find in the market. So I bought a book about making jewelry and the processes. I started from the beginning. It was so hard before I finished and it took me long time to make the first piece. When I knew the basics and the process, I started to design by myself. I tried for long time until I got better. Finally, in September of 2005, I opened my own small shop. 

    I have faith and believe in God, and I want to look after my three children so they grow up to be good people. I also want to make jewelry. At present, I live with my husband and our children, and I do my jewelry by myself.

    • Beautiful!

      I bought this necklace about 7 months ago and it holds one of the most honored places in my jewelry collection. It is so beautifully made, all the precious stones placed in such a way as to look like a natural waterfall of color. Neererat is an extremely talented artist and I bought the carnelian flower earrings to go with this and the ensemble is gorgeous. I get at least 5 comments of praise whenever I wear it. I will buy other pieces from this artist as they become available. Also, the packaging is precious, box covered in hand made paper with leaves embedded , the necklace lovingly placed on a small handmade pillow inside. I just can rave about it enough!

    • wonderful
      Verified Purchase

      This necklace was wonderful. It is rather short but if it were any longer than the beautiful flower wouldnt show. the extender makes the length perfect for me. Not only is this REALLY BEAUTIFUL it is nicely made. I would definately recommend this necklace for someone who wants something a little different and wants lots of compliments on how they look. :) I love it.

    • An Exotic Piece of Art Jewelry Crafted with Great
      Verified Purchase

      This arrived in a beautifully fabricated pouch of a native print. The necklace is exactly as pictured but even more beautiful than the photo. The carnelian, turquoise and what appears to be jade or quartz beads are individually threaded and knotted securely on a thin but stronger gauge of dark brown cord. The clasp consists of two larger round turquoise beads and a well-made loop which has proven to secure easier than any metal clasp I have had to fumble with. The clasp is in keeping with the naturalist element of the design. This necklace has started more conversations with people than anything I have ever worn. The time and care that went into the selection of beautiful materials and the crafting is so superior it would easily sell for at least twice what I paid if it were in a gift shop or jewelry store. I will definitely buy more from this gifted artisan.

    • This necklace is beautiful!!!
      Verified Purchase

      I am sooo pleased with this necklace! I waited for about 15 days to receive it, but it was worth the wait. It is super unique and beautifully made. This would make a fantastic gift. It comes packaged in a hand-made gift box. (Im keeping it all to myself) I intend to order many more pieces from this company. I am obsessed with one of a kind jewelry. The flower is really heavy and smooth. The only issue is the clasp feels weak and one of the stones has a white back from where it was cut. I think I can push it to the back so you cant see. Not a big deal.

    • lovely carnelian necklace!

      I have made and designed jewelry for about 10 years; this necklace is all that I would put into a design; love it!

    • Want beautiful and unique? This is it!
      Verified Purchase

      If you are the kind of person (or are buying for someone) who loves to have jewelry that gets noticed... and that other people don't have, this is for you! I was looking for something elegant but casual for summer, colorful but not "blaring," and this piece was perfect. It's well made, though as I stated, you should know that it's constructed with string and beads - however, I make some of my own jewelry and I can attest that it's well-made, and the clasp is sturdy metal. As others have said, the packaging was a nice surprise, and I'm keeping mine in it when not in use, because the flower in the center is at risk of breaking if handled roughly. Really smart buy for the price!

    • Fabulous Necklace
      Verified Purchase

      I am so thrilled with my new necklace that I wore it as soon as I opened the lovely "green" box in which it arrived (the box is a work of art in itself), As another member worte, the carnelian is amber in tone and not at all red, but all the stones are beautiful, obviously natural and well matched for color. Workmanship is outstanding. This necklace is adjustable length, via dual turquoise beads and string loop closure (although the difference between settings is only two inches). It is definitely choker length, which I happen to prefer I highly recommend this necklace and will be looking to purchase others from the same line.

    • Definitely a treasure!
      Verified Purchase

      After looking at this necklace for months, I finally decided to purchase one. Overstock.com kept me informed concerning the shipping process. When it arrived today, I was thrilled to find it will go well with so many of the things in my closet. The craftsmanship is excellent and the piece is so unique! I can't wait to wear it this spring and summer and into the fall. If you are on the fence, may I suggest you get off and order one of these beauties. (I may just get another for a gift.) An added bonus is the knowledge that such a purchase benefits the artisans of Worldstock Fair Trade.

    • Worth the Wait
      Verified Purchase

      I was very frustrated waiting for this product, it took me about 20 days to receive this necklace. But upon delivery I realized that it is shipped all the way from THAILAND. I bought the necklace as a birthday present for my mom and she was stunned. It came in its own beautifully crafted box and is nothing less than a gorgeous work of art. It matches the picture wonderfully and is very beautiful.

      Verified Purchase

      This necklace was a tad smaller than I expected but oh so pretty in person! The way the strings are knotted and the beads attached make it look like little twigs, really cute. The closure is so clever, too, it blends into the whole design, doesn't even use any metal.

      Beautifully designed and made! Four stars because I was disappointed with the color of the main flower.. it is not a bright clear red. It is rather a brownish red. Some may prefer this color paired with the green agate.

    Questions & Answers

    • Q:

      "I need at least a 20 in length. Is this possible to do for this wonderful craftsman?"

      • A:

        I do not think so. They are made in bulk and the fact that there is no option to choose the length indicates more towards a standard size. I love this necklace and the length is just right for me. The flower sits exactly between the collar when I wear dress shirts.

    • Q:

      "What is the measurement around the neck? I don't need to know how long it is."

      • A:

        Hello Denise B., the necklace itself is approximately 15.8 inches. Thanks for shopping with us.
