Thailand's Jantana takes her inspiration from the legendary Chinese lucky knot. In China, knots have different meanings which are dependent on the person that ties it, or the occasion such as a ritual, a prayer, or a funeral. Jantana crafts the sterling silver earrings by hand and decorates them with a glistening blue topaz.
.925 Sterling silver
Among Jantana's collaborators are two men and one woman who are profoundly deaf.
Jantana learned the art of silversmithing from her uncle. In turn, she teaches these skills to her assistants. Her unique jewelry designs feature contemporary styles incorporating both traditional and contemporary jewelry-crafting techniques.
Jantana began working with her sister but now has a workshop of her own. With her hard work and clean, contemporary jewelry designs, the workshop has grown to the point that she can offer jobs to other silver artisans in the community.
