"My girlfriend and I… learned to design and make beautiful jewelry from books and people for over a year. We finally developed our own style."
"My name is Komkrit Sitthiprasert but everyone calls me 'Tui.' I was born in 1968. I originally started studying car mechanics, and I got a job in a car magazine, writing about things people don't usually know about cars. I worked there for about ten years. Always wanting to do something extra, I ran a small guest house for two years. I was happy doing something different to what I had done before.
"In 1997, Thai economy suffered and the magazine I worked for could no longer employ me full time so I had to find something else to supplement my income. My girlfriend and I started selling women's clothing, including jewelry. We worked together with my girlfriend's sister, who tended a clothing shop. However, the jewelry started selling better than the clothes! The shop we bought the jewelry from couldn't provide the jewelry we needed, so we had to start making it ourselves.
"We learned to design and make beautiful jewelry from books and from people for over a year. We finally developed our own style. After a couple of years we stopped selling clothes and focused solely on the jewelry.
"I would like to say that ours is a family business, just as if we were brothers and sisters. We also make the customer feel like one of our family, we will always try to please customers with what we have to offer. I am glad that Novica will display our work. I think this is a very good opportunity for us. I like to show the work we are proud of to the rest of the world."

Torrance, CA USA
I just received the Crystal Raya necklace I ordered as a birthday gift for my best friend. I wanted to get her something special, and this beatiful, graceful, simple, elegant necklace is perfect. I was also amazed at how quickly it came. This is a wonderful piece of jewelry would fit right in at your favorite trendy jewelry store.
I ordered the ""bhodi turquoise"" necklace as a gift for my sister to help her begin to build a fine jewelry collection. when it came in the mail, i opened it to see it up close and was totally awestruck and speechless. the craftmanship with which the piece was put together was incredible. panels of turquoise adjoined by bronze.... an absolute work of art. the photo did not do this piece justice. when my sister opened it, she was as awestruck and speechless as i was. its a piece she absolutely loves and im so excited and happy that it was created. thank you, thank you, thank you. ~stephanie

A friend recommended Novica and I am ADDICTED!! I recently bought ""Bodhi Turquoise"" choker & 'Amazing,' jewelry set by Komkrit Sitthiprasert. They both are exquisitely designed and more beautiful then the pictures on the website. Thank You! Komkrit for such a wonderful pieces and most importantly the personalized touch shown in the packaging. Thank you Novica for bringing such talented artists just a few key strokes away. R. Rawat
Just received the ""Amazing"" jewelry set, and it is indeed amazing. I've gotten many compliments already. My only wish is that there were earrings to match!
I received my agate necklace today and it is absolutely beautiful. I was a little skeptical about ordering from outside the US because I wasn't sure that the package would arrive on time, not damaged, and...I figured the shipping charges would be high. I could not have been more wrong. The necklace arrived in mint condition and (had it been a gift) would not have needed any further packaging. Novica is an excellent source for unique products and I will purchase again from this artist and many others. Thank You.
The neclace I got, ""Bhoti Turqiouse"" is the most beautiful and unique jewelry i ever had. The price and shipping time is incredible! Thank you!
I just received my ""Black Beads"" bracelet, and I love it! It looks exactly as pictured, but the workmanship was better than I could have imagined. I started to put it in my jewelry drawer, but instead, i had to begin wearing it immediately. I will definately consider ordering more works from Komkrit in the future. He and his employees are true artisans.
Beautiful work . . . . thank you ever so much. You also shipped the item to me in good condition, and quite fast. Sending a postcard with the order was nice as well. an employee read it to me, and the card is hanging in my office.
