Ek Thongprasert

K so maybe many have heard of Ek Thongprasert before... But I just discovered this lovely stuff the other day, and I fell, fast.

I was so struck by these adornments.  So unlike any I've seen in everyday life.  
Try to tell me they are not cool.  Just try.  Well, John did.  He thought  my discovery was no big deal.

But to me it was earth-shattering and inspiring! 

These seem to have a similar attitude to what I feel about the art I make:  A little crazy, not the norm, but made approachable by playfulness and engagingly sophisticated (hopefully) at the same time.

Wait. So, is it art, or is it jewelry? Or both? What makes jewelry become art?

I DO like it. I forgot to say that. And it does remind me of your art.

It's firstly jewelry, I believe. But isn't it clever that it makes you wonder if you should wear it as jewelry or handle it as art?
