"For the past 20 years or so, I have had good and bad times but I enjoyed it all. It is pretty much like black coffee – bitter, sweet and very nice."
"My name is Danai Leosawathiphong. I was born March 20, 1949 in northern Thailand. My grandfather was a Chinese immigrant from the Canton province. He emigrated to Thailand at the end of the 19th century when he was in his early twenties. He was a very hard working person trading goods all along the river and during that time he met my partner's grandfather.
"I studied business and left for England. Engineering interested me, and I graduated with an engineering degree from Leeds University. I met Ilkay, my wife there. She went to Brunel University where she graduated in polymer science.
"In 1976, Ilkay and I came back to Thailand. Originally my family and partner's family planned to get into mining. And in order to analyze the rocks, ores and minerals, we needed to set up a lab. Then my partner's father suggested that we could also use the lab to create something representative of the area, and we came up with the idea of covering natural products such as exotic flowers and plants with gold. Well, the easiest way was to experiment with copper.
"So we started electro-plating products. We got a small bathtub, filled it with an electrolytic solution and placed anodes in there. We placed flowers in as cathodes wired to a DC rectifier and went home. Of course, we could not wait to see the results, so we came back at 2 or 3 in the morning. Yes, the flower should be nice by now. We took them out and… Wow! Only the wires were left! We tried and tried until we had our first flower covered with metal, but it really looked like a shrimp. So this experimenting lasted about two years. We had to start working professionally, because our process is not electro-plating, but rather electro-forming. Basically with electro-forming the layer of plating is much thicker and the surface better leveled than with electro-plating.
"It was a very demanding and challenging time for Ilkay and me because there were so many details involved in trying to get our products off the ground, working on packaging and advertising, etc. We had to run this activity like a proper business and, with our scientific backgrounds, this was another challenge. It was just as we were launching our product on the market that my partner married. His wife is in charge of marketing and has helped us tremendously.
"This new venture gave flavor to my life. It has enabled me to provide employment to others in my community, and they can provide for their families. From the very beginning, one of our main objectives has been to employ women, as there were few job offers for women then. Another main objective has been the environment, because we have to deal with chemicals. We reprocess everything we use and do not throw anything away. All our boxes are made out of recycled paper as well.
"I think our creations have a lot of potential. I do not think they will go out of fashion, because people generally love flowers. It is so interesting when you work for yourself. For the past 20 years or so, I have had good and bad times but I enjoyed it all. It is pretty much like black coffee – bitter, sweet and very nice."
The Natural flower gold stickpin, ""Everlasting Red"" is exquisite. It is as delicate and intricate as a flower is, and yet it is as strong and firm as a stickpin should be. The hues of ruby red and crimson glisten with touches of gold. My family and friends admire this pin and are amazed at its beauty.
The ""floral swirls"" piece is lovely. The orchid surrounded by a graceful sterling silver wire is unique and I have received many compliments. Danai does beautiful work!

The orchids from Thailand are truely the most beautiful in the world. Mr. Danai's use of them in creating the ""Pink Perfection"" necklace is absolutely stunning. I will be visiting your sites items again in the future. Aloha, Amy Merchant, of ""Hawaiian Ginger's Creations.""
My Orchid pin arrived today and I am THRILLED. the craftsmenship is exsqusite. I look forward to more of Danai's work.
I ordered the 'Eternal Orchid' stickpin for Mothers day. My mother loves it! I gave her the 'Pink Perfection' necklace for her birthday. Her comment was that they compliment each other so well but make an incredible statement by themselves. Thank you so much!! You have given me the opportunity to give my mother some very special gifts this year.
I just recieved my orchid flower necklace and orchid pin and I love them both! The pin will be an excellent Christmas gift for a friend and the necklace is a great gift for myself! Thank you so much!
I received my Orchid necklace a few days ago. I have worn it a couple of times and have gotten many compliments each time. The work on it is amazing! Looking at another one to buy as a present.
I ordered the Natural Orchid 'pink perfection' necklace. It just arrived moments ago and I was completely taken with how ornate, delicate, and beautiful the piece is. Not only is it true to the one pictured on the website, it surpassess it. The necklace combined with the thoughtful postacrd from Thailand that Danai included... not to mention the adorable gift box all made me pleased beyond belief that I ordered from you. I will no doubt continue to order your handcrafted natural bloom pendants. They are true works of art. Thank you so much for your talent, kindness, and grace. Sincerely, Jennifer S.
I recently purchased the Natural orchid silver brooch-pendant, 'Dancing Doll', for my grnadmother for Mother's Day and it was absolutely beautiful. She loved it.
I purchased 'Pink Perfection' as a Mothers day gift. She was amazed at the detail and beauty of it. I have not yet been able to see it but the comments I have heard back have been wonderful. Thank you so much!
Dear Danai, I ordered a silver pin orchid at 17.53hrs. on 29/11/04 and today,3/12/04, at 12.00hrs I received it in perfect condition. A truly remarkable speed of delivery! My wife was absolutely delighted at the beauty of the orchid pin and so was I. The gift box which contained the pin was also delightful and of excellent quality. The packaging protected the delicate brooch and kept it in perfect condition. We particularly appreciated the beautiful natural leaf paper and tissue paper. Thank you for your artistry and prompt response. Frank and Iris Snelson
I purchased one of Danai's orchid pins as a Christmas gift for a dear relative. I was so pleased when I received it and very proud to give such a lovely gift. Thank you for creating such beautiful jewelry.
Long Beach, NewYork, U.S.A
Im so impressed and satisfied to the items I purchased which were the exquisite and exoticly beautiful dendrobium orchids in which the artistic hands of a very great artist named Danai immortalized our Papa's flower. That's how we remember our father who passed away and to our belief and faith his spirit is in that orchid. Everytime we see that orchid to us, it's our father. And suprisingly I had a chance to see your website Novica and amazingly saw that item which I have been searching in sense. Thank you and please extend my greetings and congratulations to Danai's excellent pieces that we'll keep. It's so fragile that I think we'll just keep and afraid to use for it might break ot get destroyed.
Thank you very much for a very speedy service, I did not expect to recieve items so soon after order. I checked the item that i ordered and to my amazement really I like it very much, I just know that my partner will cherish this. Very beautiful work. I look forward to coming back for other gift item in the future. Regards, Demetrio Barros

Indian Harbour Beach, FL
I purchased three different orchid stick pins created by Danai. Besides being unique,they are all exquisite. I know the recipients will love them and receive many compliments when wearing them...I'm tempted to keep them for myself!
I do not know if words are enough to describe my emotions when I first saw the necklace and stick-pin we bought. I had been excitedly waiting for our items to arrive and I was not disappointed! You do beautiful work, and my hope is that these items that we intend as gifts will fill the recipients with as much excitement and awe as they did me. Thank you so much for all your hard work and beautiful creations! May you all be truly blessed in your family and business lives. Thank you Danai!
Bought two necklaces , a pair of earrings and a brooch. All are natrual orchid. My favorite is that pair of earrings. They really dance like butterfly. One of my friend saw them and rushed on Novica to get them too.:)Though the earrings I recieved are red not the same orange color as the picture on the webside, I love them. Their name:""Danty Dance"".
I was looking for something unique to give to my mother for Christmas. Unfortunately, I was under some severe budget constraints, and I worried that I wouldn't be able to find anything. Luckily, I found the orchid necklace ""Charming"". The necklace is certainly charming and much more. It is absolutely gorgeous, and my mother loved it. Thank you for making such a beautiful, delicate piece of art available.
The natural flower pin is outstanding. It was so well packaged that it came without a flaw. It is hard to express the beauty of this piece. It has become a star in my collection.
Hello Danai, I ordered one of your ""Forest Solo"" necklaces for my mother's birthday. I loved it. I have not given it to my mom just yet. I have seen some of your other works, also. They are beautiful. I have told so many people about this web site and they have fallen in love with it, too. I hope we can generate a lot of commerce for you and your fellow artist on the Novica site. Thank you so much for offering us wonderful cultural artistry that all of us can afford and enjoy. Warmest Regards, Anna (Your Art Fanatic)
I just received the ""Forest Solo"" necklace, and ""Forest Duet"" earrings. I was pleased with the timeliness of the delivery. I wanted something different and beautiful to wear for my wedding, and these are perfect. I couldn't be happier with the quality of these pieces. I can't wait to order more jewelry in the future!!
Pittsburgh, Pa USA
I could not even begin to express how much I love an admire the piece I bought, Floral Swirls. The customer service and pure craftsmanship make Danai and Novica a perfect pair. I have had many compliments and have recomended the entire experiance to anyone who will sit still for 10 seconds and listen. I would most certainly buy again!
I bought the sunset beauty a great gift I want know if possible what the name of the orchid is to buy it.
Creedmoor, NC, USA
The blue fern earrings are just gorgeous! The colors are even prettier than the picture and I'm so happy to have found this artist and this website. Thank you so much!
I was so pleased with my new necklace, Floral Swirl. It was packaged so nicely and the artist wrote a sweet note with the item. I can't count the number of times I am stopped whenever I wear it. I've been recommend novica.com to anyone who will listen - such a worthwhile organization. These artists deserve an advocate. I am proud to be a customer.
I purchased his natural leaf gold earrings and matching pin - they are really beautiful!!! The workmanship is outstanding, and they are lovely pieces.
I absolutely adore the two necklaces that I recently purchased by Danai - ""Charming"" & ""Floral Swirls"". The craftsmanship is beautiful and they truly are unique pieces of jewelry. Many people can't believe that 1.) the flower is real and 2.) it was made in Thailand. Having thought that the products would take quite a while to reach me, I was pleasantly surprised to receive them in a week. I certainly found the place where I will be doing my gift shopping. Thank you very much!!
I ordered two brooches - Blue Fern and Eternal Orchid. They are both beautiful far more so than the photographs can portray. They look so delicate, yet are obviously robust. I am giving one each to my sisters for Christmas and I know they will be delighted. I am so pleased I found this website and I have already recommended it to several people. Thank you
The flower stickpins are gorgeous. It is nearly impossible to believe that Danai has actually turned real flowers into jewelry. The photos very accurately represent the beauty of these pieces.
I just recieved my leaf necklace today. I wasn't sure what to expect because it was a low price... The necklace is beautiful; a real buy. The chain is gorgeous and the shipping was lightning fast. Thanks so much, I'll be back.
I just received my ""Charming"" necklace and ""Blue Fern"" earrings and they are beautiful. Both are very delicate and just the right size. Thanks for making such beautiful jewelry. Keep up the good work
I love my ""forest solo"". I had been looking high and low for the perfect leaf necklace, and I found it at NOVICA. It is beautiful in a delicate way. I wear this necklace with everything! I just wish I had my ears pierced so I could wear the matching earrings! Thanks!
These make gorgeous gifts especially for those who love orchids. I am waiting patiently for some red pins to come as I will definitely stock up for Christmas and for friends who love red! I now have four of these and LOVE them. Now, which to give away.................sigh.
Your work is truly beautiful beyond words. The first two items that I received literally took my breath away. When you hold them in your hands you can still feel the life within them as if they had just been picked moments before. I have a feeling I will be back again and again until I have purchased all that you have to sell. Please keep up the amazing work!!
Fairfield, CT, USA
I just received the three petal necklace and it is absolutely beautiful. The petals look as though they were fresh picked this morning! And the package took only six days, from Thailand, amazing!! I shall certainly be purchasing other items. Many thanks.
I just received my pendants and am so pleased. The flowers look so delicate and beautiful. I was a little worried that they could be damaged easily, but I found they are not as delicate as they look, which is wonderful. The workmanship is superb and the colors so vibrant. Wearing the necklaces will certainly brighten my day during the dreary months of winter. I will certainly be coming back to look at future items.
I absolutely love the necklace I bought from Danai over a year ago. ( gold dipped leaf) I get compliments on it every time I wear it.
I was very impressed with the fast response & delivery time even at this busy time of year (Christmas). The rose necklace is pretty! I was trying to replace a similar necklace that I lost. I would like to see a smaller rose made, about half the size, with the holder for the rose on the side of the rose so that it faces outwards so that the rose can be seen, rather than hanging downward. Thank you!
The necklace ""Forest Solo"" and earrings ""Forest Duet"" are just perfect together! My son's girlfriend loves them and I had hard time not keeping them for myself. Thank you!
The necklace I purchased was beautiful, a lot of detail and handcrafted to perfection, I greatly thank you for creating this authentic master piece. I am glad to support artists who are masters at what they do in other countries. Warmest Regards,
San Diego, California
I received my order of three of the Rose pieces: Rose Romance, Perfection and Scarlet. They are absolutely beautiful. Thank you for such delicately exquisite and impressive jewelry.
Tacoma, WA, USA
Beautiful necklace. I am sure I will be getting many compliments. Thank you.
Thank you very much for my lovely order - the Rose and the Orchid necklaces are absolutely beautiful. They arrived very speedily and packed in delightful boxes. It was very exciting to open up the parcel and they were both every bit as beautiful as I had imagined. (I have my Rose necklace on at the moment.) Thank you very much.
I have just received my jewelery and they are all beautiful thank you. I'm starting my own business with these products and i'm sure they will fly out the door as i would love to keep all of them myself! The photos don't do them justice they have to be seen to really appreciate them!
I can only say that the images on the net do not do this piece justice in any way. It is far more incredible in person. No matter what, it will always start a conversation that you can bet on.
I bought ""Gift of the Tropics"" for my Mother-in-law. She seemed to love it. The details and colors are wonderful. The gift box and wrapping were cool too. Thank you!
Thank you for some truly beautiful pieces of jewelery - forest solo and forest duet. They always receive compliments when I wear them and are suitable for almost all occasions.
Philadelphia/ Pennsylvania/ USA
I purchased Perfect Sweetheart after losing the first one I had purchased through Novica. I loved it so much I had to replace it. This time I couldn't help but pick up Sunshine Love as well. They're so perfectly preserved. It's amazing how beautifully preserved they are. I've purchased roses before that had been preserved and they don't compare to the quality of these. Thank you so much for giving us the opportunity to purchase these beautiful treasures. (^_^)
Beautiful work, and the packaging is an extra, unexpected treat. Shipping was extremely fast.
My wife very much appreciated the lovely orchid leaf earrings. Vibrant color and good workmanship. Thanks!
Today we received the Pink Perfection necklace which we ordered on 18/12/2008. We are delighted about this nice piece of craftsmanship, exactly in the same way we were enchanted by the one my wife bought during our journey through Thailand when we visited a shop in Chiang Mai. Maybe this was your shop. Merry Christmas and best wishes to you and the Thai Arts Team. Christian

I've purchased several of Danai's pieces over the years and have been absolutely impressed with all of them. They are some of my mother's favourite treasures and she gets endless compliments when she wears them.
Bethlehem/ Pa/ USA
My girlfriend fell in love with the earrings. She was mystified by their beauty and the quality of the workmanship. I got so jealous of her gift, I brought a pair for myself. Thank you!
Today I rec'd some of the gifts that I ordered for mother's Day. I am so pleased, I ordered soap from Thailand and a beautiful rose pin for my mother and grandmother. The gifts came beautifully wrapped and you can smell the pretty scent of the soap through the wrap. It took less then a week for my order to arrive and the order was processed immediately once I placed it. I will be ordering special gifts. jewelry and art for family and years to come from Novica. for many years to come. The quality of and love that is put into every piece of jewelry and art work is beyond awesome. I'm so glad I found this site and am a customer for as long for life!
Abingdon, Virginia, USA
What an absolutely stunning work. It is so beautiful in its simplicity. I would love to see you do the yellow orchid with the adjustable gold chain! Do more, more, more.
My husband purchased ""Forest Solo"" for me for Christmas. It is such a beautiful necklace. It is a wonderful work of art that I will love to wear and treasure for a long time. It is a delicate piece that is bigger than the pictures make it seem. A wonderful find! I look forward to seeing what else Danai has to offer!
To tell you the truth, I ordered this pair of earrings from Danai to bring my order up to a minimum for shipping purposes. I'm so glad I did. They are beautiful and delicate. I haven't worn them yet because I don't have pierced ears and will have to find a way to convert them to clip earrings, but I look forward to wearing them. Thanks Danai!
I Bought this gift for my wife as a wedding present, it matched the flowers in the wedding. I was worried it would not arrive on time but it did the day before the wedding it came and my wife was so happy she loved it. It will be one thing she can keep forever and remember our happy day.
A really fine piece of Jewelry/Art. The Orchid is the token for the 28th wedding anniversary which my bride & I just celebrated. An Orchid by Danai was the perfect gift. She is thrilled by its delicate beauty, and I am thrilled that it got here in four days - just in time for our anniversary! Thank you Danai and, of course, Novica.
Peace to you and your family Danai. I absolutely love my red gerbera brooch!!! It is the perfect size and color with your craftsmanship truly evident. I look forward to wearing it. We are having a very snowy winter here in New York and I was experiencing a bit of the blahs. The arrival of my brooch and your message were divinely timed. many blessings and much gratitude.
LOVE my two necklaces. Buying another for my Mom.
I won a $30 gift certificate to Novica off a blog giveaway and I chose the Sweet Scarlete necklace from Danai and I am so happy I did. The necklace is BEAUTIFUL! Everyone who has seen it in person is amazed by it's beauty. The pictures on the site are beautiful but do not do the necklace true justice. I love my new necklace!!
My necklace and earring set were even more stunning in person!! Great work and it was perfect!!
Danai, you are a genius! I love the earrings, 'Golden Harvest'. They are even nicer than they looked in the picture. The creative idea, electroplating natural products to make jewellery, is absolutely brilliant. These earrings have so much character because of the infinite detail of a natural seed, which is actually enhanced by encapsulating in precious metal. The design is very clever and the high karat gold is such a beautiful colour. The mixture of gold and silver works really well. I am proud to own such unique, gorgeous jewellery. Thank you.

Dear Danai, Thank-you so much for the Dancing Blossoms brooch. I think it was a brilliant idea to base your jewellery on the beautiful flowers of Bali, and I think your working out of the electroforming process and other aspects of production is brilliant. The result is so delicately lovely and yet surprisingly strong. I admire the box, too; besides being very pretty, it holds and protects the jewellery so well, with its hand done deep cushioning (much better than commercial boxes). Thank-you again, and best wishes to you.
Woodbridge, Virginia, USA
I have thus far purchased a beautiful orchid necklace, on a sliding chain so the length is adjustable, making it FAR more wearable, and orchid earrings to match. I'm sure I'm going to be back for more of Danai's lovely jewelry -- the quality is just amazing, and the beautify in person is truly breathtaking. I would recommend this artist to anyone who loves beautiful floral jewelry!
Victoria, British Columbia, Canada
I continue to admire your genius, Danai. I have added four necklaces to the brooch in my collection: two orchid long necklaces, the star anise, and a coffee bean necklace. Each is unique, and beautiful. Thank-you again --- these pieces give me much happiness! Kathleen Victoria, British Columbia, Canada
Beautiful Thank you so very much, I will make sure to recommend your work!!!
Austin, Texas, USA
I bought a natural orchid stickpin for a friend. The jewelry was so lovely that I wanted to keep it for myself!
Exotic Sky Bloom necklace graces my neck every so often. I love to wear it because it is simple yet elegant. Workmanship is superb and you can literally see the veins of the flower running through the petals! The beauty of nature is well preserved. Good job, Danai. Shirley Singapore
Danai, Thank You so much for creating such an exquisite piece of jewelry. The ""Spring Celebration"" earings are amazing. Everyone who has seen them has evnvyed me because of the them. They are truly amazing. They are so delicate and fragile, but the posses so much beauty. I hope you and your family are all well.
I ordered 2 rose necklaces. Received them very quickly, and they are absolutely stunning. I will say I also love the beautiful mulberry box that it came with. I gave a friend one of the necklaces and she thought the box was the gift because it was so pretty. She was amazed with the necklace, after I told her it was more than just the box! I plan on getting another necklace for my mother next.
I have bought many of Danai's creations over the last few years. The first one was an orchid necklace that I gifted my mother in India- she absolutely adores it! I then gifted another to my sister who loves her orchid necklace too. Now my mother's colleagues back home are interested in buying Danai's orchid creations for themselves and as gifts for family and friends. In fact, I just ordered three more orchid necklaces for them. His natural flower jewellery is exquisite! Keep us the awesome work!
I enjoy her beautiful work but even more important two friends, for whom I never know what to give, love her work. Both were amazed and delighted w gifts of her work.
Woodbridge, Virginia, USA
I keep going back to shop from Danai's beautiful selection of jewelry -- there's just nothing like it anywhere else. He captures flowers at the height of their blossoming and turns them into wearable art. Such talent! I'm acquiring quite a collection of his work, and look forward to continuing to add to it -- everything is not only unique but of the highest quality. My most recent acquisition is the Forest Solo necklace and matching earrings, and they are stunningly beautiful. Thank you so much for your wonderful work, Danai!
I had been looking at the Rose Quartz necklace for about three weeks before I finally decided to order it. I happened to check my mail this morning and saw the box in the mail box. Needless to say I was super excited. I opened my box at work and was beyond ecstatic when I took the necklace out of the bag. The detail of the flower is amazing. The online picture is great, but to see it in person is truly impressive. I immediately put it on and noticed that t is so light it doesn't feel like I am wearing a necklace. Almost all of my co-workers and students have commented on how pretty the necklace is. I'm glad I purchased this necklace because it is truly is stunning and one of a kind.
Absolutely beautiful artistry!
Bonita Springs, Florida
My husband and I bought the gold plated orchid button earrings for his mother and they were beautiful! Very well made and a unique piece of jewelry. : )
I bought Gold-plated natural orchid petal button earrings, 'Chiang Mai Sky' and Gold-plated natural orchid petal button earrings, 'Chiang Mai Sky' The earrings are lovely and well crafted. It is amazing what Danai does with flowers.
I've purchased multiple items from Danai & I have never been disappointed! Each flower has been unique, well-crafted & stunningly beautiful! My personal favorite is 'Violet Dawn', a gorgeous purple orchid with just a hint of gold around the edges of each petal. I gave it to my Mother as a gift & she says that whenever she wears it, it's inevitable she'll get compliments from people she passes by! I can attest to that, because each time I wear my 'Pink' orchid necklace, the same thing happens to me! Needless to say, I'll be purchasing more items from Danai in the future. In fact, I have my eye on 'Sweet Cattleya' already! Thank you, Danai, for bringing so much beauty into my jewelry collection & into the world!
I just received the silver cypress leaf pin and I'm thrilled with it. I've been looking at this piece for a long time and finally bought it for myself. It looks very delicate but it strong enough to take handling and wearing. I'm especially thinking of wearing it in the winter because it reminds me of an evergreen cloaked with ice.
I can't thank you enough for the beautiful necklace I received. The pictures of your work do not do your art justice. It was absolutely gorgeous and made a perfect present. The only issue with it, is that the person I bought it for refuses to wear it. She says it is so beautiful she never wants to run the risk of it breaking, so she has put it on display at her house instead. All of her friends love it too.
I was worried at first that my Chiang Mai Kiss orchid petal earrings would be too fragile - but this was not the case! Not only stunning, but also well made; I love my earrings! Juls in New Hampshire

I recently purchased the 'Chiang Mai Beauty' orchid earrings. When I took them out of the box, they were more beautiful than pictured. I love the colour and the simple design and I have received many compliments about the uniqueness of these special earrings. I hope you continue to make more beautiful jewellery. I hope to purchase more of your designs. Thank you and best wishes.
Saint Petersburg, FL USA
For many years now, I've been looking for just the perfect pair of pink earrings to replace favorites I'd worn - it seems - forever ... till one got lost. I happened to stumble across these 'Chiang Mai Kiss' earrings by Danai and fell in love... praying that when they arrived they'd be as beautiful as in the picture ... my heart has been blessed! These are such delicate, gorgeous pink to purple earrings and I couldn't be happier. The quality of their creation is evidenced and they arrive in a lovely cloth bag. Thank you Danai for making your most lovely creative designs available for others to purchase. Blessings, CATherine
Saint Petersburg, FL USA
I'm totally in love with the pair of Natural orchid petal dangle earrings, 'Chiang Mai Kiss' recently purchased and received by me. These earrings are so delicate and beautiful; I MUST purchase a pair in probably another color to gift to a friend. So happy to have found this excellent jewelry artist and will definitely purchase again here. Thanks so very much, Danai!
I was skeptical at first that these could potentially look better in photos then in real life. I ordered 4 orchid brooches/necklaces and a rose necklace. The products are beautiful, well crafted and the resin does not distort the original form of the flowers. You can still see all the veins of the petals! I bought one was for me, the rest are Christmas gifts and the family members I bought them for were in awe and had a tough time picking out which ones they wanted for themselves because they all looked so good. :)
Saint Petersburg, FL USA
I loved the pair of petal earrings that I'd purchased for myself, that I bought a pair for my best friend in similar colors - a birthday present. She was so overjoyed with these earrings that she wore them to her high-level job the next day; gosh, was I delighted! This is an artist who must be supported and encouraged to continue producing such unique and high quality earrings. I will purchase more from Danai in the future!
I am so pleased Danai with the product you made by hand, you are a very clever lady, thank you very much Rita Ann Brett XX
