In astrology, this large, horned mammal has a reputation for its stubborn, somewhat reserved nature. In the natural world, however, the bull is capable of unleashing a striking defense and fury, but only if threatened. We like to think this two worlds meet somewhere in the middle with this pair of stud earrings designed and created by Thai artisan Jantana. Using 925 sterling silver, the silhouettes are expertly crafted with ears perked and horns held high, displaying both innocence and incredulity at once.
Among Jantana's collaborators are two men and one woman who are profoundly deaf.
Jantana learned the art of silversmithing from her uncle. In turn, she teaches these skills to her assistants. Her unique jewelry designs feature contemporary styles incorporating both traditional and contemporary jewelry-crafting techniques.
Jantana began working with her sister but now has a workshop of her own. With her hard work and clean, contemporary jewelry designs, the workshop has grown to the point that she can offer jobs to other silver artisans in the community.
