Exquisite filigree work twists into an captivating abstract design, reminiscent of softly climbing tendrils. Elaborated in sterling silver, these earrings make a stunning accessory for a casual affair.

Ploy Intha has an unbreakable spirit, battling countless difficulties to fulfill her dream as a silversmith. Intha describes the intricate process, unique to each piece: "Silver is beaten and stretched into long strings. These strings are later meticulously shaped and coiled, they are then cut and joined together to form the vegetal pattern. The pattern is then soldered. Once soldered the hooks are attached to the pattern and the completed earrings are washed into a tamarind solution. Then they are dried and polished."

Artisan Ploy Intha

"My name is Ploy Intha. Although silversmithing is my passion, I have not always been a silversmith. When I was very young, I worked as a food seller with my sister. It was a hard job that paid very little money. One day my sister took another job. I could not manage working alone, on account of my leg. I have polio. I moved to northern Thailand about that time, and began looking for a job. I discovered that Northern Thailand is the birthplace of so many interesting handicrafts. I particularly loved the exceptional silver designs."
