Inspired by life memories, Bangkok-based designer Tithi Kutchamuch creates jewelry and decorative pieces that show the subtle interplay between visual form and perception.
The renowned Thai-born jewelry designer Tithi Kutchamuch received her MA in Design Products from the Royal College of Art in 2007 in London, where she lived and worked for several years before relocating to Bangkok. Tithi’s unconventional conceptual approach has led her to design a variety of interesting pieces, which cross boundaries between art pieces, decorative objects and functional jewelry.
“My work is a medium to document my thoughts or life experiences, at a period of time, in a three-dimensional form. It reflects a little of what I have seen in ordinary everyday life. I’m interested in objects that are not only seen but heard; an object that can speak for itself or that I can talk about.” Each of her collections tell different stories.

For example, the Pearly White collection reflects her idea of social status. For as long as there were human beings, we have sought to adorn ourselves with symbols of status. Animal and even human teeth were frequently worn by chiefs and high-ranking citizens to denote social status. In many traditions the smooth round pearl is often regarded as an ideal. In the Pearly White collection, Tithi has searched through thousands and thousands of pearls to find the few whose imperfections make them perfect for their new role. Each piece is unique and custom made.

On the contrary, Drip aims to add value to the ancient knowledge of metal casting in clay molds found in the ‘Pa-aow’ village of northeastern Thailand. Tithi said she was overwhelmed by the processes, techniques and most surprisingly, the hours that were spent on each piece when she first visited the village. “Their work was handmade from start to finish, and the material for each batch differed in what metal scrap was available.” The Drip prototype was made from a mixture of bullets, wheel values and broken water taps, as well as bits and bobs from a previous cast through a newly established method Tithi refers to as “dripping wax”.
