"I always created jewelry for my friends' birthdays and they all look forward to receiving something original. Everyone liked them so much, I began to offer my designs for sale.<br><br>"Although I majored in business administration and management, I'm a sensitive girl. I love my freedom and I love art. I enjoy working in the garden where the air is fresh and where I can relax and come up with new ideas for my jewelry. I love to travel, and this helps me get ideas for new designs. Sharing with my friends also helps me think creatively.<br><br>"I was born in 1983 in Maesai, Chiangrai, on the border of Thailand and Burma. My father is a gardener. We have a lychee garden near our house and my mother has a small food shop in the market nearby. My only brother is five years older than I am so we are not so close. My mom is a great cook - her cooking is excellent and I loved to eat the dishes she prepares.<br><br>"My aunt is in the jewelry business and has much more money than my parents. She has been very kind to me. So that I could study in a good school in Chiang Mai, I moved there to stay with her and she paid for my tuition, for food, for everything! I feel so fortunate! While living with my aunt, I became familiar with jewelry. This inspired me, and now I love to create my own designs.<br><br>"Leaving Chiangrai and moving in with my aunt was the biggest change in my life. I experienced the big city, studied in a good school, made great friends and learned all about jewelry. It had made my life so much better, and my parents are happy and proud of me. I want to say thank you to my aunt for her kindness.<br><br>"I visit my parents in Chiangrai as often as I can and it's always a good time for me. But I'd like them to come stay with me in Chiang Mai. I need us to stay close as a family, and I want to support my parents. I want them, my aunt and myself to be healthy and stay together forever. This makes me happy.<br><br>"In Chiang Mai, my grandmother takes me to the temple on every Buddhist holiday. She taught me Thai culture and tradition, especially the traditions of Thai women. I feel very Thai when compared with friends, and I believe in the King's speech, in having enough in life. I don't want to be millionaire - just have a steady job, enough for food and to support my parents. I just want to enjoy eating and to sleep well, for happiness is inside.<br><br>"I'm so grateful and I would like to thank you, the shoppers, for helping me continue in the work I love. I'll keep on creating new jewelry designs for you."
