Anusara's story

Anusara is a Thai artisan who combines colorful gemstones in handcrafted jewelry, often with floral designs. She hopes to purchase materials and also be able to pay assistants to help her.

Anusara has been selling through NOVICA since 2005. This is her story:

"I love crafting jewelry. I'd like to help conserve the natural world and the original Northern Thai culture that I love. I don't want it to disappear. I feel love and pride for all of my artwork. I'm proud of my designs, proud of creating them, proud to wear them and proud to sell them. In the future, I'd like to have a small shop of my own, in which to sell my jewelry."

"To create jewelry at a good price, I need to buy stones and accessories in bulk. In addition, I need to pay my assistants daily, even when I don't have enough orders to give them work at the moment. Thank you for your kind help with this microcredit."
