Hello from Thailand, welcome to my blog! I'd like to share a little bit of my life in Thailand and my latest jewelry creations with you.

Jewelry with an oriental flair!

I enjoy making pieces with Chinese blue & white porcelain beads mixed with a variety of stones, pearls, shells, and glass beads. I also enjoy experimenting with other stones and beads. I am willing to change any of the pieces to meet your specifications. Please visit my online shop at Thanks for stopping by.

Blue & White Beads

These Chinese porcelain beads are reminiscent of the antique dynasty porcelains which are famous throughout the world. The beads have been hand painted with Chinese characters representing longevity, happiness, wealth, love, and good fortune. The blue & white porcelain became well developed in the Yuan Dynasty (1271-1368), but flourished in the Ming and Qing Dynasties. First natural cobalt was painted on the basic body. Then it would turn blue after being fired at high temperatures. The white glaze covered by a clear glaze highlighted the blue designs. The vases, plates, decorative items and beads are different and unique.
