Busarin from Thailand
"After I graduated from the university, I did some disc jockeying but felt that this job did not reflect who I was and what I wanted. Indeed I wanted to be independent and earn a living from something I love.
"The idea of making jewelry came not only because I love jewelry but also because it goes along so well with women. I initially bought and resold items, but gradually started making them myself. I chose easy patterns and low prices but customers came to me with different needs, asking for better items regardless of the price. Therefore, I started using higher quality materials and updated the patterns accordingly.
"My jewelry is skillfully handmade with delicate patterns. I always pay attention to new or different things that could inspire me.
"Although I could draw my inspiration from pop culture, mostly I prefer to help get society more in touch with the natural environment. Most of my patterns display butterflies, dragonflies, flowers and other images that put people and nature back together."
