    Story Behind The Art: 

    I believe in the power of stones. Before leaving home, I wear an accessory – preferably earrings – that features at least one type of lucky stone….

    My name is Sasina Leerasawatdiampon. My hometown is located in the north of Thailand where the air is fresh and the landscapes are beautiful. I really love this place. I have an older sister and my parents work with agricultural products. 

    My parents use to have a big garden filled with fruits and flowers which they started out of personal choice. It grew so much they started to sell their produce and be able to make a living from it. This is the kind of environment I grew up in, one were I could walk and admire the beautiful flowers, which I would pick to decorate my room. 

    One day I was trying to get an outfit together for a party I was invited to, so I decided to use some of the flowers as accessories. I made some lovely jewelry with it, and I also wore some on my hair, to the point where I thought I had overdone it, but didn't have time to change. Everyone at the party admired my creations so much, they made me feel like a princess. 

    I craft jewelry with my good friend Busarin, who is also a Novica-featured artisan. I love jewelry so much that the need to adorn my body with it is mandatory. My favorite is the earring, because it is little yet can subtly decorate the wearer. I believe in the power of stones. Before leaving home, I wear an accessory – preferably earrings – that features at least one type of lucky stone, not only for luck, but also because I believe I will then meet only good things. 

    I have been fashion-conscious and loved beauty for a long time. As a young girl, I had already started to make earrings, bracelets and necklaces. I used my imagination to create simple designs with simple materials in my spare time. But it was while studying at the university that 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 or doing anything else in fact, which was good anyway in terms of sales. 

    I eventually graduated with a Bachelor's Degree in accounting from the School of Business Administration and began looking for a job because I wanted to have enough money to start running my own business. Of course I could have simply helped with my parents' but I had been planning to have my own for a while. I dreamed about it and was prepared for it and would settle for nothing else. 

    After university I began to work for a big finance company, but I didn’t like it all. Being the youngest member in the team meant I had to do everyone else's tasks and I was under a lot of stress. I missed being able to design, so after a couple of years I resigned. 

    There is an important thing I would like to say to my clients worldwide. A part of what I earn with my jewelry will be donated to an orphanage. I would like to participate in giving these children a chance to grow and live, and so will you when you purchase my products. Thank you very much, from the bottom of my heart. 

    Please allow 10 business days for the product to leave our warehouse and to receive tracking information. You should expect to receive this item within 15 business days.

      I ordered the necklace as a February birthday gift along with the "Silver Garnet/ Amethyst 'Bright Bouquet' Earrings " which matched perfectly. It is absolutely beautiful, good length and weight, the colors are vibrant. Looks delicate but I can tell how sturdy it is. I know my cousin will love it. The wrapping was also great. As advirtised - took a week to be mailed but received quick once turned over to FedEx.

    • Be smart & beautiful. Wear this unique necklace!
      Verified Purchase

      Green, yellow, and orange just don't look good on me. So I never thought I liked peridot. But, oh!, all is forgiven now! The peridots in this necklace look gorgeous, nestled in among the plentitudinous amethysts and pearls. The necklace is exquisitely made, and I love the background sheen of the silk strands holding it together. Perhaps the best thing, the color of the stones is very accurately represented; no washed-out, pale, ghost-colored stones here. I feel like royalty when I wear it! And to think, I bought it for someone else. I'm so glad I learned she doesn't like her birthstone before I sent it to her. Now it's all mine! :D

    • Very pretty, but much more "purple" than expected
      Verified Purchase

      This is a lovely piece that a person seeking a purple/violet necklace is sure to love. In the photos, the stones appeared to have a fair amount of navy blue shading, which is what I was looking for, and the green accent stones appeared very subtle. In person, the stones range in tone from lavender to violet, with some royal purple in the mix. The green accents are very green. While this is still a nice combination, it was not quite what I was looking for. Still, for the price, it's a nice piece - delicate and unusual. I will keep it and pick up a purple shirt to wear with it.

      This was a beautiful necklace and I can use it with two different outfits. I get many compliments from people when I wear them. I love Amethyst and put together with Freshwater Pearl makes this a lovely necklace.

    • OK - a little tweak to material goes a long way
      Verified Purchase

      The colors of this necklace are much brighter than the subtle, understated tones shown in the website photo. Also, (unfortunately), the wire used to string the beads together is not a subtle silver, but rather a lavender-colored metallic strand. The effect is to turn what could be a very classy piece into something I'd expect a little girl to wear to a birthday party. Not unattractive - just not "Tropical Elite." I'll keep the necklace, but will likely not wear it frequently. May give it to a daughter or niece.

    • Beautiful!
      Verified Purchase

      Wonderful colors, fabulous craftsmanship... Have received compliments EVERY TIME I've worn this necklace. (And...I've worn it at least a dozen times.) Very comfortable to wear and very well-made. I highly recommend. (Packaging is also lovely--takes a little longer to receive; but, well-worth the wait.)

    • Too tutti-frutti
      Verified Purchase

      The necklace didn't look like the one in the photo. It had chartreuse and magenta pearls mixed with the amethyst and peridot which distracted from the simple elegance I was going for. I wanted a (mainly) purple amethyst necklace. Otherwise the necklace was fine and it came in a nice box which would make a nice gift.

      Verified Purchase

      This is quite pretty, and something you won't find at your local department store. I wear it with a purple silk blouse and black suit and it adds just enough of a pop to make the outfit stand out. It is delicate, so if you're looking for a bold statement, this is not the necklace for you.

      Very delicate colors, seems fragile. It’s quite pretty but the colors are lighter than pictured. I wanted something interesting but not overwhelming to wear with a printed dress, so it works—-just hope it holds up!!
