Who Makes Our Earrings?
Punysia, a female artist and Yepoon, a male artist.
Modern Societies earrings are hand made out of clay and hand painted in Chiang-Mai, Thailand.
Making earrings is not their full-time job but a side hobby turned into a source of income. They are the only two people involved in the Chiang-Mai business.
Punysia studied art in Bangkok before moving to Chiang-Mai to pursue a career as a children’s art teacher. She is responsible for the design of the earrings.
Yepoon is a talented painter who also sells his artwork at their market stall. Yepoon is responsible for painting the earrings.
I met Punysia and Yepoon while at a market in Chiang-Mai. Their earrings stood out for their uniqueness and creativity.
We all met the next day and Punysia brought her aunty along to translate in English for us as I cannot speak Thai.
We became business partners a few weeks later when I made my first order.
I provide Punysia and Yepoon with some ideas but the majority of the designs are all original by them!
Punysia and Yepoon value nature, sustainable packaging, creativity and ethical business.
