About

The making of Fish Silver - Creating One of a Kind Sterling Statement Jewellery

Fish Silver had humble beginnings back in 2006 in a small rented shop space on the world famous Railay Beach in the stunning province of Krabi, Southern Thailand. Railay Beach is a popular tourist destination for people from all around the world and was an excellent place to sell our silver jewellery. Pon hand makes original one of a kind pieces of silver jewellery. Pons design and Fish Silvers Style tends towards bold statement pieces with an ethnic feel. Over the years Pon and I (Meg) saw more tourists come to Railay Beach and an interest in Pons jewellery grow, with many customers returning each year. Fish Silver has had some ups and downs with floods in Thailand, Political unrest and a quiet spell every year during the monsoon season. These quiet spells prompted us to look elsewhere for sales. A friend told us about Etsy, so we took our first plunge into online selling.

Pons interest in silver began about 20 years ago on the now infamous Khao San Rd in Bangkok. Living up there he made money selling leather and beaded jewellery to the foreigners passing through, while living with an old friend who had a silver jewellery business. Pon later moved from Bangkok down to Railay Beach, a rock climbing mecca on the world map. At Railay he worked as a professional rock climbing guide, and competed professionally in 2 Asian X Games, and a Singapore Open. All the while Pon was making and selling jewellery on the side, perfecting his craft and honing his skills.
In 1992 I arrived in Krabi and in 1995 Pon and I decided to open our first little silver shop in Krabi Town. The following year saw new oppourtunities and a chance to move the business to Railay Beach. With the move came the new name "Fish Silver". At Fish Silver we sell the wonderful bespoke pieces created by Pon, silver charm bracelets, created by me, and the wonderful ethnic silver jewellery created by the Karin Hill Tribes of Northern Thailand. Our shop is a ten minute drive and a ten minute longtail boat ride away. Our working and creative space is somewhere amongst the clutter that is three young kids and life in the monsoons.

Pon loves working with turquoise (his favourite stone) and creates wonderful, unique one of a kind pieces inspired by the colour and shape of the stones He uses a high content silver (95-97%) which is softer to work with allowing him to create wonderful detail and defination to his pieces.
Four years ago Pon lost his left leg in a car accident. A huge change had to be made in the day to day running of Fish. It has been a tough few years for Pon and I but despite everything Fish Silver continues to go from strength to strength. Pon being able to continue making silver, keep busy, and support his family was psychologically a big boost to him during such a difficult period, and as a result his skills and craft have gone from strength to strength
Our work day begins once we have packed two kids off to school in the mornings, allowing Pon the freedom and peace to sit in his workshop at home creating original pieces or fufilling orders. I take our youngest child Amadee and catch a ten a.m. long tail boat over to Railay Beach to open our shop. Railay Beach is buzzing with tourists in the high season and in low season it is a surreal ghost town of what was, just three months ago. Pon is inspired by the natural shape and colour of the stones and fossils he works with. Often he will shape the silver to fit the stone rather than shape the stone to fit the silver. This means many pieces are truly uniques and one of a kind with a lovely handmade feel to them.
Fish Silver is definately a journey that has just begun and both Pon and Meg are looking forward to many more years of living the dream and loving the life.
