Overview

During Chiang Mai’s rainy season, bright blue skies can darken in an instant as lightning pierces the air. As dangerous as the sudden storms can be, they can also be beautiful in their intensity. Thai artisan Khun Boom pairs faceted labradorite—thundercloud gray with subtle flashes of iridescent blue—and 24-karat gold vermeil in elegant designs that capture the colors of her city’s summer storms.


Details

Handcrafted in Chiang Mai, Thailand. Labradorite with 24-karat gold-plated sterling silver. Necklace: approximately 19" L; pendant: approximately 3/4"L x 1/2"W. Earrings: approximately 1 1/2"L x 1/4"W.


About the Artist

Growing up in the international city of Chiang Mai, Khun Boom was exposed to the arts and cultures not only of Thailand and its many hill tribes, but also of China, Laos, Myanmar, and beyond. Her love of art began at an early age, and she eventually earned a degree in fine art from the Chiang Mai Institute of Technology. After designing jewelry for an international exporter of fine silver, she was hired by a major UK design house to produce a line of jewelry to complement its fashion line.


Of her experiences in the UK she says, "I believe that an opportunity is like a lucky bird. It might come just once or twice in your life, and when it does, I am going to do my best to take it.”
