One day I got an email: a Thai shop making handcrafted silver jewelry read my blogpost about best shopping spots in Chiang Mai, and asked if I would consider including them too.
Their message sparked my curiosity, but of course I’d only recommend a shop I truly love! So I had a look at their website and didn’t need much time to figure out my answer: YES! How could I have overlooked this gem?
What kind of handcrafted silver jewelry does Metal Studio Jewelry make? They work with a variety of metals and precious stones. Common materials include silver, brass, gold, bronze and vermeil. Metal Studio also has a wide range of gemstones in stock including opal, druzy, ruby, sapphire, labradorite and rainbow moonstone. Each item is handcrafted hence one of a kind.
Have a look at some of my favorite pieces below!

Who is behind Metal Studio Jewelry?
Metal Studio Jewelry was founded by Thai artist Sirilak Samanasak as a way to share her handcrafted silver jewelry designs with the world. She gets inspired by nature and Thai cultural heritage, but gives her pieces a timeless look and feel. This is what she says about what drives her:
“The thing that I strive for more than anything else is to give make unique jewelry that will be loved and cared for throughout generations. Nothing would makes more more proud than to know that I will be able to make people happy, long after I am gone.”
Her studio in Chiang Mai is a mix of a gallery and a shop. You can buy the pieces that are on display, but you’re also more than welcome to just have a look around! Ms Sirilak will be happy to meet you and show you how she makes her beautiful jewelry.
