The project was born from the support of Moon Seeker Gallery,
which has an ideology in supporting Thai designers and artists as well as preserving the culture, folk wisdom and the arts and crafts of Thailand for future generations.

The gallery tasks 4 artists and designers with using the folk wisdom of Thailand and resources from the 4 regions of the country to create treasured pieces of jewelry. These pieces should represent the unity and harmony of the country’s people. To fully realized this artistic goal a new material was created especially for the task. This never before seen material in the jewelry field is called “GILVER”, forged from the fusion of Gold and Silver. Its unique characteristics fits perfectly with the objective of this project.

TRIMODE ACCESSORIES is working under the southern region ,
Som-Rom collection.

The word “Som-Rom” is a southern word that means to fuse, combine or blend. “Suan Som- Rom” is therefore agricultural fusion. It is an agricultural practice in creating a sustainable and resilient livelihood following the “sufficiency economy” philosophy.

The jewelry in this collection was forged from the inspiration of “Suan Som-Rom”. The principle of mutual coexistence between plants, for example, the planting of Mangosteen, which does not like direct sunlight, under the shade of Durian trees, was used throughout the pieces. This is akin to the mutual understanding and acceptance of each other’s differences that has been a great part of the Thai culture for so long.
Many of these philosophies of cohabitation, along with different parts of the southern vegetation’s forms found in “Suan Som-Rom”, were combined using new production technique to create 8 tangible contemporary pieces of jewelry.
