Photoshooting with Thai Fabric Jewelry

It’s been quite a while since my small handicraft shop ‘Sirinya Ann’s Atelier’ has been active. I first started out handcrafting items from Thai fabric in 2013. I don’t sell anymore but I still enjoy wearing the articles myself. Thus, recently I’ve had the idea to wear an extravagant collar necklace for a photoshoot. It turned out amazing and unique. I really love wearing jewelry that I created myself and that nobody else has.

I realized that this kind of diy jewelry is truly amazing for giving an extravagant touch to any outfit. Though by now I’ve nearly run out of my crafting materials from Thailand, I still very much love creating accessories and jewelry with traditional Thai fabric.

I wish I had more access to these fabics but living in Germany, they are hard or even impossible to obtain. In this context, I’m also reminded of the Siamese fashionista, a trend that came up about four years ago. I recall that was a group that tried to maintain the way Siamese people dressed in prior centuries. I’m not sure what has become of this group and if traditional Thai clothing has become a dress that can be worn on any occasion. However, I very much like the idea of dressing in the traditonal Thai way. Crafting small items from Thai fabric has been my way to relate to this trend.

Finally, all I can say to finish off this little post, is that I’d really love to wear a traditional Thai dress and also that I’d like to have more fabrics of this kind for crafting.




Sirinya Ann’s Atelier: Art & Crafts

Maybe you’ve already noticed that I have a small handicraft shop here called ‘Sirinya Ann’s Atelier’. I’ve started this shop at DaWanda about two years ago and have added some articles from time to time since then. Everything you find in this store is handcrafted by myself 🙂

For instance, here are some of my handcrafted items:

In my shop you find extravagant and extraordinary accessories, hair accessories, fascinators and jewellery made from Thai fabic, silk, brocade, satin, pearls, rhinestones or other similar materials. The fabrics are chosen with care and most of them I bring with me from my travels to Thailand. Sometimes opulent or sometimes subtle, my products have an extraorinary exotic touch.
From time to time, I also offer Vintage articles in my shop.

You see, I very much enjoy crafting accessories and jewellery with traditional Thai fabric simply because the material is so special and extraordinary.

Recently, I’ve also tried to do some decoupage art using copies of Chakrabhand Posayakrit’s marvellous paintings. In my tribute to this Thai artist, I’ve already shown you some of my decoupage art.

At the moment I have discontinued my shop but if there is any interest, please let me know in the comments and I will reopen Sirinya Ann’s Atelier at DaWanda or Etsy 🙂

Yours, Sirinya
