"I come from a family of farmers so I grew up surrounded by rice paddy fields and green landscapes. My family is not rich; my parents had to work very hard to make a living and pay for my education. By the time I was seven years old I was helping out by selling fruits and vegetables. I also cooked and took good care of my parents as I would see them come home after work looking very tired. The best I could do at the time was just getting the food ready on the table. It was always my pleasure to see them enjoy eating my food! I am mindful of ways for making our lives better.
<br><br>"When you're seven years old, selling vegetables and fruits at the market isn't fun, but it has influenced that way I am today.
<br><br>"After graduating I set up my small workshop and started doing what I love most, jewelry. I have always loved wearing nice jewelry and I knew that one day I would create my own designs. My dream is to sell my jewelry all over the world and become well-known as a designer so that my parents won't have to work anymore and be proud of me.
<br><br>"But I know this isn't easy, interest and dedication alone isn't enough, so I began studying books and I read success stories about famous designers, then I applied for a job and worked for a jewelry exporter for over 2 years to get the experience that I could not learn from the books or classroom.
<br><br>"I had the opportunity to visit many workshops, see how they made different kinds of jewelry such as plain silver, stone jewelry, semi-precious jewelry, gold plated and gold stamp jewelry, ancient beads, old silver, leather, pearl and many more.
<br><br>"It amazes me how humans can create such wonderful things, how creative humans can be! Thai craftsmanship is great and silversmiths are too, I fell in love with jewelry.
<br><br>"My boyfriend also inspires me. He is a collector of antique decorative items and old silver jewelry. I travel a lot with him to explore and study antique jewelry from many places, see different styles and designs of jewelry featuring beads, gems, silver, leather, pearls, etc. I also learned different techniques from each place and each country. This is a great opportunity and it has widen my world and widen my experiences in jewelry.
<br><br>"I have learned a lot which I apply to craft my jewelry, and another benefit is I know where to source quality material.
<br><br>"I love to work closely with suppliers and silversmiths through every step of the process. I try to design and get the jewelry the way the market likes; we share ideas and experiences to help each other develop new and original designs. I also help some suppliers sell their jewelry as some of them are great in making but don't know how to sell or present their pieces.
<br><br>"My designs are simple and nice, just like me! My jewelry is designed for everyone and every age; it's comfortable and light weight. You can enjoy wearing my jewelry every day and for every occasion. I want my customers to enjoy buying and wearing my jewelry. I want everyone to look nice everyday, for I believe that when your clothes and your jewelry look good, you feel good too!"
