July 2008 – Lightning visit to our jewellers

The two new jewellers that we found earlier this year proved rather popular! We had brought, in March, a few pieces back from Surin (a jeweller making silver earrings in fab designs) and also Tik (who makes rings, bracelets and earring studs using operculum(s) – the “door” of a seashell), both working in Bangkok. All these pieces flew out over the first 6 weeks. So, John had to make a frantic 72 hour trip to visit these two jewellers and have some more made for us.
