"I would say that I am at heart a jewelry designer who loves motorbike racing."
"My name is Withaya Cheunjit and Achara, a Novica featured artist, is my loving wife. We have been working together for over 20 years. We use high purity silver, which is handmade by skilled silversmiths, especially by our good friends, the hill tribe people.
