"I love my work and I really give it my best. My motto is 'do the best for today.'"
"My full name is Chalermkwan Veerasilp, and I believe that my father, an architect, definitely influenced my wanting to be a designer. I graduated in interior design from Bangkok Rangsit University in 1996, where I was taught techniques applicable to every line of arts. When I completed my studies, I was hired as an interior designer in Bangkok where I worked for five years.
"One day I met a jewelry dealer and we talked about his business, about designing and he asked me if I would be interested in designing jewelry for him. It was only a part time job but I found this craft interesting and I also thought about the future, about freedom in my work, about growing bored with interior design, and decided that I had better be my own boss. So I quit and started anew, with jewelry designing.
"I had only just started this new job when my sister asked me, upon getting married, whether I would be interested in taking over her art shop. My boyfriend and I consulted together and we agreed to do it. I now mostly mount stones and silver beads on strings to create unusual and beautiful items. I buy the stones from markets and itinerant dealers from various countries, and once I have everything at hand, I try to enhance the value of these materials with my designing skills. I draw the shapes on paper and string the materials by hand. If I do not like the result I try and change the stones or the complete design and start again.
"I am now happier and feel freer because I work on my own and I have an open field of creativity. I use my own ideas and do business my way, not other people's way, as it happened in the company. I love my work and I really give it my best. My motto is 'do the best for today.' In the future, I will hopefully provide the four corners of the world with my handicrafts. These handmade products are not mass marketable; they are made with simple and elegant designs and are not outdated."
The earrings I ordered were absolutely beautiful. The detail, and craftsmanship were breathtaking. I love the personal notes that the artist provides. I will continue to watch for new creations, and offerings from Chalermkwan. Thank you for sharing your talent.
Ordered the ""Protection"" Anklet.... It's sooooo pretty! Craftsmanship top notch. Fits around my ankle very well. Also, very lite - you don't know it's there One of the best anklets I have ever had! Sharon :)

Beautiful earrings! - I have 'Bold Admiration' and they are just as I imagined - bright & bold, but very feminine and shimmery. I love them and am admiring so many of your designs. Thank you, Chalermkwan! I have more photos of them on my website at CosmeticCat.com
I just received the gingko button earrings by Chalermkwan, they are just perfect and so exquisite. I had a pendant from Taxco, and thought the earrings would match it's matte/shiny style, Her earrings were a perfect match, and now I can where them together. I buy from Novica frequently, and have never been disappointed, but I have to say that Chalermkwan is really an artist and her work is absolutely first class! Thank you so much, Pat

Thank you Chalermkwan for your beautiful work. My wife loves the pieces I ordered from you- the ""Unity"" necklace and the ""Sea Dewdrop"" earrings. They look wonderful on her. Also, thank you for including the post card. It was a nice personal touch that we both appreciated.
I had never seen anything like the earrings I ordered. The picture was amazing, but no where near what it was like to see them in person. They will fit my aunt perfectly as they are one of a kind, just like her! You have a wonderful talent Chalermkwan! Thank you for sharing it with the world.
When I first saw the 'zoom' photo of your necklace 'Sea Drift' on the website, I was enchanted. Now it has arrived, and I feel honoured to welcome such a beautiful work of art into my home. I shall wear it humbly and with love. Thank you for creating it!

Today I received my Brilliant Iris necklace. I love it and can't wait to wear it to work tomorrow. I have added several more of your designs to my wish list. After all, Christmas is just around the corner.
Thank you so much for designing the beautiful Silver Plume bracelet! I love its simplicity and grace. It is also so comfortable I hardly remember I am wearing it. Smooth and sleek, it definitely reminds me of the birds it represents.
I just received your ""mountain clover"" anklet, and it is absolutely beautiful. I hope that you plan to design other anklets.
I've been looking for a long time for something like the two beautiful necklaces I recently purchased. I'm thrilled with my purchases and love the boxes the necklaces came in. Thank you.
My sister loved the Lapiz lazuli earrings as her birthday present, and I was pleasantly surprized by the fact that they arrived so quickly in time for her birthday. Thank you

I purchased your ""Thai Earth"" necklace for a gift. My friend was delighted and the necklace lovely. I'd like one for myself!
I love your work! I am always looking for unique and limited pieces to wear and was thrilled when I found your work. I have ordered a number of your necklaces, and love the length you make them! They are so delicate and 'pretty'; I feel special wearing when I wear one. I'm looking for bracelets under seven inches in length, say six and half? Thanks for sharing your gift/talent.
Thank you for the elegant earrings. They are a delight to wear.

I have purchased a number of items from Chalermkwan. I love every one of them. The bracelet I ordered this time is just as amazing as the rest of my pieces. Thank you so much for sharing your work with us.
I received a beautiful Celadon Elephant pencil holder from Chalermkwan. I think it looks even better in person. Have been using it well on my desk. Definitely would purchase more of her items.
I love the design of the necklace I purchased; it only took 6 days from the day I ordered it until I received it. I am going to enjoy it very much. Thank you.
The stone 'Tiger's Eye' holds a special meaning for me, so I was delighted to receive such amazing pieces of jewelry featuring this stone. Keep up the good Work.
I just received my necklace, it is simply beautiful! Thank you for creating such wonderful pieces, I will order again from this artist without a doubt - in fact, I might just order something right now! And thank you for the fast and efficient service! It has been a complete pleasure!
Thank you Chalermkwan Veerasilp for your wonderful creations. I was searching for 2 unique gifts and ended up with a necklace and bracelet designed by you. Your designs are simple, fresh, and make a statement. I'm sure that the 2 women who will receive the gifts will just love them!
Hello Chalermkwan: I am writing to let you know that I receive many compliments when I wear your pretty Lapis Lazuli and Sterling bracelet. I wear it with your Lapis and Sterling earrings which are also very lovely. They were not purchased a set, but I enjoy wearing them together. I am very pleased with my purchase! Thank you! Lori
White Plains, NY USA
I just received the necklace I ordered and am very pleased with it. The quality of the workmanship is extraordinary. I ordered the necklace as a gift, however I will keep it for myself (I am not totally disappointed because I get to keep it) because it is not long enough for the person I ordered it for. My suggestion is to make them longer so that women of all sizes can wear them. Thank you I have also added other necklaces to my wishlish. I can't wait to receive them.
Another wondeful Novica Artist! The Lapis Bracelet is more beautiful then I thought. Am VERY happy! Will look for items from this artist again.

My second order was just as stunning as the first, thank you!

Dear Chalermkwan, I received my beautiful ""Glorious Flower"" necklace yesterday! I love the unique design and your excellent craftsmanship. Thank you so much! Sincerely,
Super bracelet! Absolutely love it! The Lapis is exquisite! My mother will love it as a birthday present! One of the best on Novica! Will buy from Novica and her again.
What a lovely, unusual necklace! I'm very pleased with my purchase! Thanks so much!
I am so pleased with the lovely jewelry hand-crafted by Chalermkwan Veeraslip. It's just so pretty and delicate. I love her tasteful designs and creative use of interesting beads and semi-precious stones. I highly recommend her work to all! Thanks so much! Lori Reeves
Gorgeous! I’m impressed by the quality of her job: beautiful, delicate, elegant; my new necklace is a masterpiece. Thank you
The bracelet is beautiful! Thank you, I love it.
I just received my jewelry from Chalermkwan Veerasilp and I couldn't be more pleased. The jewelry set arrived in a lovely gift box and is exquisitely designed with great precision and attention to detail. I love it and it is truly unique. I have told many others about my wonderful experience with NOVICA and I look forward to many more! Brenda Koth
Love the bracelet. It is absolutely stunning and beautiful. Can't wait to give it to my mother as a present. One of the most pretty pieces of jewerly I have ever seen.
I ordered an elegant necklace Kao na from Chalermkwan. I am very pleased with this beautiful necklace of peace, harmony, and fortune. Thank you Chalermkwan for making such lovely jewelry.
It was my first time on the NOVICA web-site and when I found the ""gender balance"" necklace I could just feel it around my neck. I had to have it. When it finally arrived it was exactly as beautiful on my neck as I thought it would be. The colors go together beautifully. It is just the most perfect necklace I have seen ever. Thank you for making it!
I just recieved my braclet from you and I love it, the workmanship is very good and would not hesitate to buy more.
Careful and beautiful work in this delicate, lovely piece. The wrapping too, was a work of art, reflecting care and delight in one's own work. I am impressed and so happy to have made this purchase!
The crossroads earrings that I purchased are beautiful and unique. This is one of my favorite pair of earrings.
I just received the tiger eye necklace I ordered from Thailand, and was very impressed with the way it was packaged. The necklace is wonderfully crafted. I highly recommend ordering from Novica.com!
Your jewelry is very beautiful and is delivered in such wonderul packages! My only suggestion would be to make necklaces that are longer in length -- say 20-21 inches for those of us who wear bulky turtleneck sweaters or have fat necks! 16 inches is a choker -- in a very real sense of the word! Best wishes,
The Lapis bracelet is beautiful and I am very pleased with the purchase. It is very unique! Thanks!
