Sumalee has struggled for many years. She has a small shop in a local market but the sales are erratic, tied to tourism, and do not provide enough income to meet her expenses. Her Novica sales are essential to her survival and the survival of those who depend on her. She is working very hard to increase her sales.

Sumalee helps to support her mother in a unique way. She hires her mother and other older workers to help with the hand-finishing of her statement jewelry created from wooden beads.

As a child, Sumalee learned sewing, embroidery and weaving from her mother. She still practices these arts today and often teaches them to younger artisans.

Sumalee Nawakul has received 3 microcredit loans with 0% interest from Kiva and Novica, the first for $1300 and the most recent for $1400.

Sumalee does not have any children but she loves being an aunt. She helps her younger sister with the cost of her niece's education.

This artist supports children under the age of 18.

"Cheerful & Versatile Necklace Art"

This cheerful work of art perfectly blends my Mom's jewelry sensibilities with my own. Mom has shown me necklaces in the past with large, chunky colored wood beads that I found unappealing. When I saw this necklace from Sumalee, I knew it perfectly combined the colors & materials Mom likes, with the elegance and more delicate proportions I prefer. I gave the longer necklace to Mom for her Birthday this week, and she loves it! She also read the descriptive card that came with the necklace, and was delighted that Sumalee employs those from an older generation to make the beautiful pieces. This was a hit as a gift, and I was proud to give it. Beautiful work, Sumalee!
