Thai artisan Jantana crafts these sterling silver dangle earrings of two pairs of endearing elephants. The pachyderms are drawn on a sheet of sterling silver, then hand-cut into the correct shape and detailed with Jantana's signature brushed-satin finish.
Among Jantana's collaborators are two men and one woman who are profoundly deaf.
Jantana learned the art of silversmithing from her uncle. In turn, she teaches these skills to her assistants. Her unique jewelry designs feature contemporary styles incorporating both traditional and contemporary jewelry-crafting techniques.
Jantana began working with her sister but now has a workshop of her own. With her hard work and clean, contemporary jewelry designs, the workshop has grown to the point that she can offer jobs to other silver artisans in the community.
