"I feel that I am doing well for my age, and I am very content with how far I have come. But my real measure of success is seeing my mother smile, as she means the whole world to me."
"I have a passion for life, art and jewelry. I was born in 1979 and grew up in Chiang Mai. My mom is a nurse and I have a younger sister. My parents divorced when I was five and my father passed away when I was 12. I started working at a young age as my mom had loans to deal with due to the fact that she had to provide for my sister and me, and put us through school. I am very thankful for this, as it gave me a lot of experience and made me a better person. I am so appreciative of my mother for her support, her strong heart and soul, and for her taking such good care of us through our childhood. At times I miss my father, but through all this I have realized that no matter what happens, your family will be there for you to give you all the support and love you need.
"Being born into the varied and abundant culture of Chiang Mai, I was exposed to the world of traditional art and the customs from China and Southeast Asia. This contributed to my love for art, which began at an early age and has become a life-long passion for design and creation. My love for art is ingrained in my personality, and it comes through in the care, love, and attention to detail that I put into every piece I design. I am so proud to be Thai, and I hope to share some of that pride with you.
"I am trained in design and art, and earned a degree in fine art from the Chiang Mai Institute of Technology. From there I moved into the world of design. I used to work for a company that exported fine silver and jewelry from 1998 to 2004. I gained international experience and a greater inspirational base for my design from working there.
"In 2004, I was hired by a major UK design house to produce elegant and unique designs to accompany their line of high-fashion clothing and accessories. While working in the UK, a number of design houses picked up my jewelry collections. I am very appreciative of this opportunity for I gained in experience and saw the world.
"I never hesitate to take the opportunities that life offers, as I believe that an opportunity is like a lucky bird: it might come just once in your life or maybe a few times and when it does, I am going to do my best to take it. I also believe in honesty. I live my life my life based on being honest; I am honest about my feelings. I am honest to people as I do believe that if you do good things, you will get that back in return.
"I am pretty content with my life now although I still have some things to deal with. I feel that I am doing well for my age, and I am very content with how far I have come. But my real measure of success is seeing my mother smile, as she means the whole world to me. She has been through a lot of things and I would do anything to just make her happy for the rest of her life. I do not do it because I feel it is an obligation, since in Thai culture children are expected to look after their parents when they get old. I do it from the bottom of my heart because I truly want her to be happy.
"I am thankful for this 'lucky bird' called Novica, which has given me such a brilliant opportunity to express myself and my art to the world. I am thankful to the team at Novica who has been working really hard in helping artists worldwide to show the world their talents. Moreover, I am thankful to all the clients from the bottom of my heart for their wonderful support."
I received Khun Boom's leather bracelet entitled 'Brown Triple Twist' recently and it is such an awesome empowering bracelet. It is very feminine and coils around the wrist like a delicate leather snake, and it gives the wearer a great feeling of empowerment and courage. The notch that closes the bracelet is extremely well-constructed so the bracelet never moves or opens, but it is also so comfortable you forget it is on. You never need take it off because it is so comfortable, except to shower! I'm delighted with this beautiful bracelet and would recommend it highly to anyone who likes beauty and strength and grace in unity. I am already eying Khun Boom's other creative innovative designs. Warm Regards, NJ

Leather and pearl bracelet, 'Dragonfly Rose' is so beautiful. It goes really well with Khun Boom's other leather bracelets as a stack. I love her work for its imagination, quality of craft, and subtlety of design and conception. Beautiful pieces! -NJ

Dear Khun, Just a short note to tell you what a Beautiful Pair of earrings you made. I can't explain how you would have the patience to sit and do this. I like them particularly as they are Petite. I wear really short hair and this way I can let the people see what I am wearing. Here in the States People are always looking at what you are wearing. Be it clothes, or Jewlery just about everything. I have had people stop me and ask where I have bought something that I may be wearing. Usually it is from one of the areas in Novica. Can't find such beautiful items here. Thank you again. Peace and Love Take care Rose Marie

Dear Khun, I am sorry that I have not wrote before now, but I had a bad time and ended up in the Hospital for about a week. However when I got home I opened the box and saw the Mountain Rock Bracelet that I had ordered. It is Beautiful, and again I have to say it seems any thing that you make turns out to be so nice. I am looking forward to wearing it as soon as I recuperate and can get out again. Being in the hospital is not fun and it took so much out of me. Hopefully I, with God's help will soon be much much better. Again I thank you for making my first day home a good one. Keep up the wonderful work that you do. RMR United States

I love the simplicity of these small briolette earrings, "Glowing Exotic." It has a very light green hue, but looks mostly clear. Very well made. I can pretty much wear it with everything. It was exactly what I wanted. I love Ms. Boom's personal writing on a Thai postcard.

I absolutely LOVE my "Porthole" leather bracelet. I fell in love with it the moment I laid eyes on it and I simply had to have it. Khun Boom is exceptionally talented. To be able to envision art in its truest most simplistic form and then transform that into exquisite jewelry, is indeed a gift. Her jewelry is not over-done, but at the same time it's ever so simplistically refined, aesthetically precise and brilliantly complex. How a piece can be so mesmerizing is utterly amazing to me. Even the name of it: "Porthole" renders this bracelet pure poetry. I love it! I love her work and I'm thrilled to know this lovely young lady is with Novica bringing timeless beauty into the world. I will wear this bracelet with much joy and pride. Thank you so much!
I just received the "Ode to Friendship" bracelet! It is so beautiful! It is feminine and modern all in one! It can be worn with jeans or with a formal dress. I so appreciate unique jewelry and this bracelet met my expectation. Thank you so much for sharing your artistic talent with the world!
I just received my "Forest Green" necklace from Khun Boom. It is absolutely gorgeous. I feel so special to be able to wear such a one of a kind piece of jewelry. I highly recommend her jewelry and support the NOVICA community.
I received the "Silver Peace" bracelet and it is so beautiful! Just like the photo on the site. The colors of the stones are so pretty and I love the silver Om charm. It has a unique look with the little disks of silver. I really love it!
Today I received Khun Boom's garnet earrings, "glowing exotic," and I love them very much. They are very classy and can be worn casually or for dressing up. These will definitely get worn a lot. Thank you so much!
The Thai Charms bracelet that I received is beautifully crafted and full of an overabundance of pretty charms. I have gotten so many compliments every time I wear it. I can not imagine the patience it must take to craft by hand such an amazing piece of jewelry. Khun Boom is truly an artist with imagination and talent.
I received my Dragon's Eye leather bracelet last week and I'm very happy with the look of it. It is a little tough to get it adjusted to fit small enough but, I'm very happy with my purchase. I'd buy from you again...keep up the talented work! Thanks!!
I purchased the 'Siam Sunflower' earrings and I just love them. The quality is great, and I've gotten a lot of compliments on them.
