"It is the melding of art and local beauty expressed in the combination of materials."
"Hello. I'm Sasithon Saisuk or you can call me Eaw, my nickname. I was born on April 30, 1968 and have two older sisters. My personality is optimistic, rejoicing, forgiving and never malicious. Although I can get angry easily, I calm down very quickly. When I was young, I was a shy girl and always obedient.
"After I finished high school, I worked for a newspaper with my sister, who is a journalist. But we couldn't separate our work and family relationships, so I returned to my hometown. I had a chance to study Thai dance and music, and in 2000 I began working at the school. It focuses on local intellectual methods and here I found an opportunity to do the things I truly love. I performed northern Thai regional dance and in addition I learned to make jewelry. It is the melding of art and local beauty expressed in the combination of materials.
"Silverwork is a regional tradition. I design the patterns for this kind of jewelry and adjust it to suit both local and contemporary clothing styles.
"I have recently begun experimenting with new materials, and I especially enjoy working with coconuts. First I used them to make jewelry, but then I started to explorre crafting other items, such as
belts, handbags, etc.
"I feel very proud of my work because I design it myself, I choose the materials, compose it and finally the piece becomes real. That's why I love it, and I hope my jewelry will be loved by everyone."
Saisuk crafts her work by hand. When working with silver, she first melts the silver-copper alloy in a crucible and decants it into a terracotta mold. After it hardens, she begins the painstaking task of sculpting the details of each bead, charm and pendant.

I ordered the anklet ""Minnow."" It is cute and well-made, exactly what one expects from the photo. It measures 10"". So far holding up to regular wear, though I bend the hook often when putting on/taking off, so wondering how long before the metal weakens and breaks (no signs of it yet!).
I received and LOVE!! My ""Noon Message"" Wood Handbag 2 days ago-1/23/07. I have already received complements on it's uniqueness.
I just received my ""Dainty Blossom"" anklet and it's beautiful! Sasithon's work is wonderful and I'll definitely be back to purchase more of her crafts in the future!
I love my coconut shell purse. I receive many compliments on it. People are fascinated by the way the design of the purse shows off the beauty of this unusual material. Thank you for creating such interesting work!
I purchased the ""autumn medley"" anklet and ""summer leaves"" earrings."" The workmanship and the artistry on both are amazing. I will treasure them. Thank you!
Sasithon does lovely work. I bought the anklet ""Secret Circle"" and the bracelet ""Hypnotic"" and they look lovely together. A word to the wise, though- be careful with some of her more delicate products. I broke the anklet the first time I tried it on before I ever even fastened the clasp. Luckily my husband was able to fix it. Take care though. I have just purchased a piece of her coconut work which looks nice and sturdy and will be back for more silver. Many thanks for making me such a beautiful birthday present, Sasithon!
I am so very pleased with the bracelet that I purchased. The craftmanship is excellent. I really liked the style of clasp that was used. This piece will work well with my other jewelry.

purchased an ankle bracelet with a starfish, handmade in sterling silver for my sister's birthday. she has a watery nature and astrologically she is influenced by many water signs. Last year she took me snorkelling in the caribbean. even though i am 54 i was a bit nervous. being the older sister, she held my hand and we viewed thousands of sparkling fish while joined together at the hands. she just phoned from las vegas, nevada where she lives and plays poker for a livelihood. she loves the ankle bracelet. a sweet friend put it on her this morning after their meditation. she is wearing it to the poker tournament this afternoon. thank you Sasithon for bringing joy to my sister Satya. many blessings to you, Nishkama

Also, I have to mention the jewelry boxes a really nice touch that added to the shopping experience. Thank you NOVICA for the speed of delivery and the ability to track the parcel, such good service. Family and friends will most certainly hear about you from me!!

Thank you so much for creating such beautiful jewelry and accessories. The natural materials that you use, particularly the coconut shell are not only gorgeous, but they are a true blessing to those of us that are allergic to all metals. Please keep up the fantastic work. You are an amazing artist!
Very nice 'Forest' ankle bracelet! It is very earthy, good for everyday wear and stands out because it is unusual. Except for just one thing, it would be perfect!. It is too big! and though it doesn't fit quite right, I am keeping it. I like it that much! I would be delighted if Novica artisans made & offered ankle bracelets for a smaller sized ankle.

I just received a lovely sterling anklet made by this artist. It is very interesting and is comfortable on my ankle. It also came in a lovely little embroidered silk gift box which is really very nice. I'm happy with my purchase.
Your work is beautiful, such attention to detail.

I absolutely love my 'Earth Roses' shoulder bag. It is the perfect size and I love the unique design. Beautifully made by a beautiful artist. Thank you so much! This one will be my favorite. ((Hugs))
I chose the coconut shell bracelet ""BROWN FOREST"" and received it today. And I can't believe it only took 3 days to receive it! What a wonderfully original piece of jewelry! Very well made and I love the design.
I have just received the Stretching sculpture. It is a beautiful piece of work, and came wonderfully wrapped. Thank you so much for your attention to detail. I look forward to purchasing more from you in the future:-)
I love, love, LOVE the design of my sterling ""Lacy Leaves"" birthday necklace made by Sasithon Saisuk! I like the natural leaf design, but also the various textures that Sasithon put on each leaf, and the way the textures are divided and laid out. The effect is elegant and graceful, while still having a sort of ""folk design"" touch. There is a small problem in back where an exposed tail of the wire pokes my neck, but I know exactly how to fix this and I have the tools to do it. I just can't tell you how happy I am to have this beautiful necklace. I know it will be a favorite for many years. Thank you, Sasithon! Your work is imaginative and lovely.
The coconut shell handbag ""Circles"" is truly a work of art. So so lovely.
Dear Sasithon Saisuk, Very many thanks for your wonderful items! They are strikingly beautiful! I'm very pleased to have them. Thank you! Yours sincerely, Daria
I just received my Earth Rose Coconut shell bag and Mocha coconut beaded necklace. It is simply BEAUTIFUL, a work of art. I feel so fortunate to have found you and NOVICA. Both packages were so beautifully packed and wrapped that I took my time in anticipation to open them but also hurried because I was so excited. WOW, the craftsmanship on both bag and necklace was more than expected. Thank you so much and I look forward to my next order!!! Fran Greene New York
