Any good hubby knows that a gal can never have too much bling, and the former Lanna Kingdom capital, with its wealth of artisan silversmiths, is the perfect place to treat the Mrs. to a showstopper rock.
If you’re a sucker for statement pieces and wearable works of art – we’re talking bold tribal and decadent Art Nouveau designs – then make a beeline for Sirilak Samanasak’s Metal Studio. Set over two floors, the upstairs workshop is available for custom appointments, while the downstairs showroom is devoted to her striking, hand-crafted RTW collection.
The award-winning artist works her magic on a variety of metals, precious and semi-precious stones, including solid silver, brass, gold, bronze and vermeil, accented with chunks of rough diamond, labradorite, aqua and pink chalcedony, moonstone and rubies. And if you’re reading this from home, Metal Studio also sells a wide array of wares on Etsy. Get clickin’, chicken!
