I first discovered Zsiska Jewellery approximately 4 years ago when I purchased my Colourful Cubes Spectrum Multicoloured Necklace.
I fell in love with the vibrant designs of Zsiska there and then. I'd receive such positive feedback each time I wore the necklace and would so often be asked where it had come from that it became the catalyst for my desire to bring Thailand based designers to a wide audience. Subsequently Temples and Markets was born.
Who is Zsiska: - Dutch Gold and Silversmith designer, Siska Schippers, moved to Thailand early 1990 and began working with Resin.
Through experimentation in her studio in Cha-Am, a small town two hours from Bangkok, she developed the unique finish to resin that makes it appear as clear as glass. This was accomplished with a team of fourteen women and took several years.
In 1992, Siska founded her namesake company and in 2007, rebranded and launched worldwide. The fourteen women with whom Siska started the company still work for Zsiska today. It is a family affair with most of their family members and children joining the company to work in a social environment.
Each piece of ZSISKA is unique and made by hand with love and care utilising top grade materials from Thailand and entailing precise design and skilled craftsmanship.
New collections are created each season, each finding its inspiration from diverse cultures, art, nature, upcoming fashion trends and colours.
The jewellery is unique and now famous for its beautiful, vibrant colours and the use of resin combined with other high quality materials such as 24K Gold Leaf and Pure Silver.
In Siska's words "To me, jewellery design is all about expressing personal beauty and bringing imagination to life"
Siska still manages the design team today and the workshop in Cha-Am employs aroud 100 people who work together hand crafting inspiring and original jewellery.
Zsiska strives continuously to create a better working environment for their team and in turn contributes positively to the local community of Cha-Am. Last year the team celebrated 9 years at their Cha-Am Factory.
We, at Temples and Markets are so pleased to be showcasing Zsiska's bold designs in our store and proud to be supporting this ethical business.
Who wears Zsiska: A ZSISKA woman combines feminine strength with elegance. She enjoys the tactile strength of resin combined with the fragile quality of precious materials. She understands the value of craftsmanship and appreciates attention to detail. Her style is timeless and never out of fashion.
We're about to launch the new season collections here at Temples and Markets. Here is a sneak peak of the incredibly striking and contemporary "Next" Range ...

Meditate With Monks
Every Saturday, the monks at Wat Sok Pa Luang offer an open meditation session that starts at 3 p.m. The monks describe the various types of mediation. They then teach visitors how to perform the various techniques. They hold a Q&A session at the end, during which they answer questions about meditation, Buddhism, or their lives as monks. While the older monks speak English fluently, many of the younger ones are just learning and use the sessions to practice their English.
