Tiraphan Hasub is a jewelry designer who produces beautiful beaded necklaces and earrings. Her designs are bright, colorful and absolutely beautiful.
Tiraphan had this to say about her design process and inspiration: “You could say I’m a fashionista, always trying to look good by wearing nice dresses and jewelry. I believe many women think like me, and that’s what inspired me to create jewelry that is original. My designs tend to be more traditional Thai than modern, so I’m thankful to Novica for showing my collections to the world.”
