18kt Gold PSTM Myanmar Irrawaddy Peridot Disco Ball Earrings

$9,345

We are very proud to have worked with Turquoise Mountain Myanmar since 2015. Since working with them, we have seen the political landscape shift and change, and the people's struggles become more acute.

"In April, I made my first trip back to Yangon since both Covid and the change in government to visit the workshops and artisans. It was wonderful to be back, but it is a very tense and uncertain time for the men and women we work with. Their work, detail, and skill continue to astound me. These small gold fruits symbolize life and the continuation of hope and new beginnings, which feel suiting." - Pippa Small

The watery blue aquamarine and hopeful green peridot are from a small family mine in Mogok and speak of nature's power of regeneration.

Meet The Maker

Tin Win

Like many of the most renowned goldsmiths in Myanmar, Tin Win comes from Ramree Island, Rakhine State. He grew up immersed in the goldsmith life, with a thin line between the workshop and the playground. It was the wish of his parents that he became a goldsmith, and he moved to Yangon in 1996 to study under the master U Kyaw Than.

He brings a deep philosophy and creativity to his work best expressed in his own words, “The most important thing of handmade jewellery is how you use your mind. You need to be creative, think about the form, structure, beauty and use of one piece. You need to think and make. Brain and hands”.

With over 20 years of experience, Ko Tin Win is now a master goldsmith working at the Turquoise Mountain workshop. He has helped create iconic pieces designed in collaboration with UK award-winning designer Pippa Small.
