Nong Nooch Garden

Last weekend we went to Nong Nooch Garden which is far from Bangkok around 80 km. We left Bangkok at 9.00 am on Saturday, reached there around 11:00 am. Once we got in there, we're stunning by lot of trees and the air is really fresh. Wow! we had so many activities to do, we walked, we played games in the garden and many photos.

There are many beautiful gardens, featuring the largest variety of Palm's and Cycad's in the world, along with the greatest selection of Orchid's in Thailand. we got up close to different wild animals, colourful birds and wonderful fish. We really feel like we're in paradise playing in the parks, and the best way to see the park is ride on the back of an elephant!

In the evening they greet us by 'Thai Cultural and Elephant' shows and wonderful meal. After that we went back to our room. It's room for 4 person with air conditioner. Super clean room and the toilet is super big and of course it's cleannnnn.....

I found new supplier

I found a supplier who has been in jewelry supplies business for 30+ years. She is very nice person. The jewelry supplies she produces in her factory are great and they are the best in quality and designs. I've brought many items from her and make my own designs.

This is one of them. I've got inspiration from my mother when I was young. I saw her making this kind of bracelet and I kept it in my memory. Once I saw this square stainless steel, I just automatically remember the bracelet. Here it go!!!

I love natural pearl.  When I was young I saw my mother wearing ivory freshwater pearl necklace with her light gold Thai silk dress.  It was beautiful and I started to love pearl ever since.  Pearl make me feel gentle and elegant.  I have tons of pearl at home and trying to make different designs.  This is the design that I inspire by plate of food for buddha praying.  I call it "Pearl Plate".

Dish with Eight Buddhist Treasures

My sons and I love to spend free time at the temple.  The place where we can learn Buddhist culture and history.  We have never bored of the history.  In fact it keep us together and we love to share our thought of life through it's culture.  Last week end we went to the temple again.  We sat under the tree in front of the battlement. The battlement remind me to the Dish with Eight Buddhist Treasures which I saw in the Chinese museum last few years when we visited China.

Buddhism proposes a life of good thoughts, good intentions, and straight living, all with the ultimate aim of achieving nirvana, release from earthly existence. For most beings, nirvana lies in the distant future, because Buddhism believes in a cycle of rebirth. Humans are born many times on earth, each time with the opportunity to perfect themselves further. And it is their own karma-the sum total of deeds, good and bad-that determines the circumstances of a future birth.

This silver dish is decorated with the Eight Treasures—the wheel, the banner, the double fish, the precious vase, the parasol, the conch, the lotus, and the endless knot. Each treasure rests on a lotus flower placed in the center of a square petal set against a background of dense ring matting.  The Eight Treasure is stand for Buddhist teaching.

I've got inspiration from this dish to design and make the bracelet and pendants in several colors here

I enjoy making this pendant with colorful combination.  It's available in my on line store at and my etsy store.

Sterling Silver Heart Parade Bracelet

We often go to the Royal Palace Temple for praying.  There are many Bodhi trees in the temple.  The Bodhi tree is a large and very old Sacred Fig tree (Ficus religiosa).  In religious iconography, the Bodhi tree is recognizable by its heart-shaped leaves, which are usually prominently displayed. It takes 100 - 3,000 years for a Bodhi tree to fully grow.

This tree is a frequent destination for pilgrims, being the most important of the four main Buddhist pilgrimage sites. Other holy Bodhi trees which have a great significance in the history of Buddhism are the Anandabodhi tree in Sravasti and the Bodhi tree in Anuradhapura, Sri Lanka. Both are believed to have been propagated from the original Bodhi tree.

We've got inspiration when we walked pass by many Bodhi trees.  The Bo leaves were falling down, we picked them up and turned them upside down they looked like hearts.  Therefore we immediately made this bracelet from sterling silver 92.5 heart charms and rings when we reached home.

This heart bracelet is very nice for everyday wearing.
