From Thailand's Khun O, this beautiful necklace takes the form of an amulet known as the hamsa, which means 'five' in Arabic. Popular in Jewish culture, its five fingers can represent the five books of the Torah and the fifth letter of the Hebrew alphabet, which represents one of the holy names of God. It is also a reminder to praise God with all five senses. Handcrafted of sterling silver .925, the necklace showcases Thai filigree art. A gorgeous and highly detailed pendant set which includes an 18 inch cable chain for everyday styles and occasions.
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.
“My jewelry is influenced by what I see around me, I look for inspiration in nature, from what is trendy and popular and from old traditional designs. 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.
