Jewellery brands and designers that don't really have a boutique of their own are a joy to discover. They require a little searching and a few pointers from those in the know, but when you find them, their trove of treasures, albeit a bit more pricey, will become a prize you hold dear
Going for glow
Thanks to Kanokkorn Lamlert, who is studying for a master's degree in jewellery design at Silpakorn University, glow-in-the-dark accessories no longer have to be tacky and crude. Her glow-in-the-dark earrings (3,800 baht) are made of plexiglas, a durable and sophisticated acrylic. The emaciated lines that outline the stylised diamonds are clean, slick and sharp_ extremely refined and reflecting that it's something only accessories made by hand can achieve.
Made with the dry-point technique, images are incised into the plexiglas by using a needle or sharp, pointy metals. These enduring pieces are great for a night out as they are not delicate like the thin lines they embody _ you can feel safe swinging them around as they aren't too heavy despite being 3mm thick. This is definitely the pick if you want to go flashy; just like any other glow-in-the-dark object, leave them to bask under fluorescent lights before hitting the town after dark or head to places with an abundance of back-light.
