"I Wear This Almost Daily"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

Whenever I go out, this is on my finger. I polish it with a polishing cloth and love how the bit of shine adds to its texture and gives it a little brightness to catch the eye. Because its not a solid band, I can adjust it for whatever finger I want to wear it on. It goes from my thumb to my ring finger with ease. Now, Id have thought that bending it might not be too healthy for the ring, but Ive had it for maybe five years, and I adjust it a couple of times a week. Im gentle, but thats how thick the silver is on this piece. You can see it in the photo, but some rings get thin underneath, and this one doesnt. I am a fan of Hill Tribe jewelry, and this piece is essential to my feeling dressed!

Your Purchase Makes a Difference!

Achara is not only a talented jewelry artisan but is also a kind, dedicated entrepreneur. Her workshop has several full-time workers, and she provides work for a number of part-time silversmiths. Her part time collaborators are hill tribe artisans who struggle to survive. To ensure that these artisans have enough income to live on; Achara continually orders their silverwork and pays for it in advance. She does this even though she may have no orders for their work at the time. She is able to do this because of her Novica customers who provide a stable, steady income for her workshop.

Achara's workshop uses traditional silversmithing techniques to produce centuries-old designs as well as contemporary pieces inspired by Thai culture. Many artisans have been trained in her workshop. They learn not only traditional jewelry making but also how to apply modern quality control standards.

Achara's children are of university age. She currently pays for her daughter's higher education and, next year, she will also pay for her son's.

The Women's Empowerment badge is awarded to female artisans or artisan groups that are led by women.

Achara received the SMEs Speed Up Award from Thailand's Department of Industrial Promotion.

In 2017, Achara received the Chiangmai Top Ten Award for culture.
