Metal Gallery


Sirilak Samanasak aka Boom Chappell is the phenomenal talent behind every piece of jewellery that comes from the Metal Gallery from Northern Thailand.

She has been in the jewellery industry for over 15 years and her experience and expertise shines through in her work. Every piece of jewellery from Boom has been hand crafted using silver and semi precious stones in combination with other precious and semi precious metals including brass, gold, stainless steal and pearls.

Her jewellery designs are inspired by the nature and culture found in the North of Thailand where she resides with partner Ryan Chappell. Her sterling silver is high quality, often coming in at over 92.5 percent purity. She uses a variety of precious and semi-precious stones in her designs and each of the gemstones is hand selected by Boom. She says "I strive to find gemstones with unique and beautiful qualities that will stand out in the jewellery designs and that will create one of a kind pieces that will become favourites in your jewellery box."

Boom goes on to describes her passion and designs below:-

"I have a passion for jewellery and design. The inspiration for the pieces that I create come from the trees, the flowers, the fire and the water. My designs have a very organic feel using shapes and patterns found in nature. I am driven by creating unique designs that showcase the inspiration that I find in Chaing Mai and in nature. Because of the wealth of cultural history and the sheer number of traditional designs and artisans, I have had access to a unique collection of materials to craft my collections from. It is from these raw materials that my jewellery takes shape. The cultural heritage of Chiang Mai is alive inside my jewellery. 

My artistic back ground is in painting and the arts and the skills I gained studying painting easily transfer themselves to my passion for jewellery. The thing that I strive for more than anything else is to make unique jewellery that will be loved and cared for throughout generations. Nothing would make me more proud than to know that I will be able to make people happy, long after I am gone. 

Each of the stones that I use has been hand selected to be of the highest quality and only the best components are used. I put a great deal of time into the selection of materials for each individual design and this care and effort shows in the quality of each piece". 

We feel extremely fortunate to be able to bring Boom's creations to you.
