A little word of blog...

A big thank you to Lori and Cori Cole, who mentioned Pam briefly in their blog post on Solving World Poverty. Back when Pam was young--which really wasn't too long ago--she was a fan of the Quest for Glory series of games, which inspired many of her earlier artwork. You can probably see how that has influenced her designs now, since much of her jewelry takes on a fantasy tone. She now works with Shiana as a driving force to create fair trade jewelery.

We were also recently mentioned in October Webfind of Beekeeper's webblog, "What's in the Attic?"

Through the magic of Google, we've also found some other very nice blurbs:

The Lipstick Page
By Colleen Shirazi, a wonderful girl who created some nice Shiana items.

The Daily Jewel
By Robyn Hawk, who promotes our message.

Word of mouth is always good, word of blog works wonderfully well too! Thank very much to everyone who has given us a boost. If you've recently blogged about Shiana, let us know! You can go to http://www.shiana.com and use the contact form.

Interesting fact silver made in Thailand is only made in villages outside of the main cities by Hilltribe families. Most patterns have been in there family for many years and can only be made by large order. There are no stores or one central place to purchase Hilltribe silver in variety other than from the large wholesale shops in the city. Mondays and Fridays are the days families will bring their goods to the main shops for sale and to pick up new orders. A trip to a silver village is a real eye opener to see how families work together to make beautiful silver pieces of art. All Handmade.
