This design features the historic symbol known as “The Sign of the Fish” or more recently referred to as the “Jesus Fish”. This symbol originated in Greece during the 1st Century and means “Ichthys”, which comes from the ancient Greek word for fish. The symbol was later adopted as a Christian Symbol due to the important role fish have in the Gospels of the Bible. This sterling silver pendant rests on a sterling silver cable that measures 18 inches and is finished with a spring ring closure. An amazing piece handcrafted by Thai artisan Khun O', this necklace is an elegant and stylish expression of faith.

Artisan Khun O’s family owns a small silver trading company in the country-side, which is located outside the major city of Chiang Mai. This is where she was first introduced to the art of jewelry making, as many talented artisans would buy the raw silver they needed from her family. This is also where she met her future husband Nugoon, who was a young silversmithing apprentice at the time. After they were married, the two of them relocated to Bangkok to start their own business. They currently own a store on the very busy Khao San Road, which is visited by many backpackers and tourists, who often shop in the area. We are excited about our partnership with Khun O because her designs are unique, modern, and trendy. She loves her work and takes pride in it, which always make for beautiful handcrafted jewelry.

It’s a mix of many things, which is where my creativeness comes in. I am proud of my designs and It brings me great happiness to see others enjoying my work. This is what I love doing, so each design carries a little piece of me with it. I hope my jewelry brings you happiness when you wear it, as it brought me happiness when I created it.
