Popular throughout the world for its many layers of meaning, the owl stands as a symbol of intelligence, wisdom and mystery. In this piece, the striking gaze of a mystical burrowing owl stands at center while its body curls abound a sterling silver ring ending with feathered tail at clasp. Crafted by hand from sterling silver, this piece is meticulously crafted in the northern Thailand workshop of artisan Kai and features oxidized contrasts throughout.

Artisan Kai is a young and talented jewelry designer from Thailand who loves his work. His designs are a unique mix of modern style with influences from all over the world. It’s hard to put a label on his designs, other than they are handcrafted and beautiful. Kai owns his own jewelry store on the east side of Bangkok where he manages a small team of talented artisans. They work together to produce his unique designs and we are excited to share their work with all of you.
“My name is Kai and I was born in Bangkok in 1988. After graduating college, I struggled to find my true calling. My first job was at a bank, but I disliked it. I was never good at math, so the thought of counting money all day was horrible. It was my wife, Kathy, who motivated me to start creating jewelry. She wanted me to do something creative because she knew that was what I was good at. My first workshop was in our humble apartment, where I took over the living room. I was using the sofa as a work bench and the space was full boxes and jewelry. She never complained and supported me always. So, when I was able to save enough to open my very own store, the first thing I did was to give her the living room of her dreams. She decorated it exactly like she wanted. For her I am thankful, and she is the inspiration for me and my life’s work.”
