Sasithon Saisuk

5.0 (artist rating)

"It is the melding of art and local beauty expressed in the combination of materials."

"Hello. I'm Sasithon Saisuk or you can call me Eaw, my nickname. I was born on April 30, 1968 and have two older... sisters. My personality is optimistic, rejoicing, forgiving and never malicious. Although I can get angry easily, I calm down very quickly. When I was young, I was a shy girl and always obedient.

"After I finished high school, I worked for a newspaper with my sister, who is a journalist. But we couldn't separate our work and family relationships, so I returned to my hometown. I had a chance to study Thai dance and music, and in 2000 I began working at the school. It focuses on local intellectual methods and here I found an opportunity to do the things I truly love. I performed northern Thai regional dance and in addition I learned to make jewelry. It is the melding of art and local beauty expressed in the combination of materials.

"Silverwork is a regional tradition. I design the patterns for this kind of jewelry and adjust it to suit both local and contemporary clothing styles.

"I have recently begun experimenting with new materials, and I especially enjoy working with coconuts. First I used them to make jewelry, but then I started to explorre crafting other items, such as belts, handbags, etc.

"I feel very proud of my work because I design it myself, I choose the materials, compose it and finally the piece becomes real. That's why I love it, and I hope my jewelry will be loved by everyone."

Saisuk crafts her work by hand. When working with silver, she first melts the silver-copper alloy in a crucible and decants it into a terracotta mold. After it hardens, she begins the painstaking task of sculpting the details of each bead, charm and pendant.
