"I believe in giving others and myself the opportunity to learn and move forward steadily."

"I enjoy using natural materials to create jewelry. I also love to design, and find ways to make my designs work.... Creating jewelry is like a passion and I'm infatuated with ensuring that my designs will please people from around the world.

"My name is Sarote and I'm from Bangkok, where I grew up and studied Metal Forming Process at the Industrial Engineering faculty in university. I worked in the metal industry for a short period of time and then I moved to Chiang Mai, where I worked for a semi-industrial jewelry company for about five years, until I decided to start my own workshop at home and work on my designs.

"I started by collecting small pieces of wood from local furniture workshops. They were pieces of black timber with little white stripes, and I choose this type of wood because the color creates a nice contrast with the silver. I cut the wood into small pieces and assemble them with various components in various forms.

"However, the first hurdle I had to overcome was the fact that wood expands or shrinks according to the weather, so I had to find a way to fix it permanently in the encasing. I studied how to bake the wood dry to prevent the expansion or contraction and, after that, I focused on attaching it to the silver with special glue. I decided to also add a small chisel to securely attach the wood.

"I was very happy and I enjoyed finding a way to overcome this obstacle by myself! Now, not only do I make patterns according to customer's requests but I also advise them on better ways to find solutions to their designs and get the best quality or usage for them.

"Things that always support me and help me work happily are shoppers' affection and encouragement.

"The first piece I made was intended to be displayed in a museum, which featured silver casting. I used the knowledge I had acquired with the intention to work with the best quality. After that, I gradually received more and more orders. I didn't have a set minimum amount per items, so I had clients ranging from students who wanted me to make jewelry according to their designs, to big time customers.

"All the while, I was also creating my own designs and crafting them, which shoppers also liked. My sister-in-law is Jantana. She is a featured artist, and she encouraged me to seek you out to help me promote my work.

"I work with Indian elm wood (Holoptelea integrifolia planch), a very large timber tree that grows in the Circar Mountains and flowers during the cold season. It casts its leaves near the end of the wet season, but they come out again in March. The wood is regarded as being of a good quality, and has a variety of uses.

"My designs are predominantly for men, but I also design for women. Eventually I will also start adding leather to my designs. My jewelry is still crafted by hand, and now I am in a position where I can offer employment to other artisans – today we are 12 people working together as a family.

"I am happy to have my own workshop. The key is to have the time to keep little things around that continue to inspire us to work.

"My wife takes care of the paper work and deliveries, and I design and look after the crafting process. We have a beautiful daughter and a handsome son. I believe in giving others and myself the opportunity to learn and move forward steadily.

"I hope you will be satisfied with my jewelry, and I hope to get good feedback from you. What we would like to ask you is that you let us be a part of your happiness. Thank you."

FINDING YOUR SIZE

Take your measurements with the tape measure over your under garments. If your measurements fall between sizes you may prefer the next larger size. Inseam, skirt and dress lengths vary by style and will be listed in the item description. Our sweaters are knit in standard American sizes, however actual measurements vary by style.

BUST / CHEST

Measure around the fullest part of chest under the arms and over the shoulder blades keeping the tape measure level.

WAIST

Measure around the smallest part of the waist keeping the tape measure comfortably loose. Most garments use the low waist measurement noted below.

LOW WAIST

Measure around the body approximately 1.5" below the natural waist (above). This is the area where most pants and skirts actually fit.

HIPS

Standing with your heels together, measure around the fullest part of the body approx 7"-8" below the waist.

NECK

Measure around the base of the neck keeping the tape measure comfortably loose.

SLEEVE

Bend elbow slightly and starting at the center back of the neck, measure across the shoulder, to the elbow and down to the wrist.

INSEAM

Our standard inseam length for women is 32" and 34" for men; however inseam measurements will vary slightly by style.

 

Belts with buckles are measured in inches that correspond to a waist size however, most people do not wear belts on the waist, they wear them closer to the hips. A buckle belt measurement is take from the end of the "pin" of the buckle to the middle hole on the belt. Generally there are 5 holes for size adjustment, with a 1" space between each, so the middle hole will the be average size of the belt.

For at tie belt (no buckle) measure the belt portion end to end and half of the tie portion. This again is the medium size of the belt.

For a soft fabric tie belt it can be called "1 size fits most" and the entire length of the belt should be measured and listed.

By skipping steps in the traditional supply chain, you can buy high quality items for less than the regular retail prices.
