When we speak of Thom's Collection, we refer to works born out of a creative process that has become rare in this age of computer-assisted design and laser etching: The art of sketchbook designed, handmade, hand-engraved Hawai'ian jewelry. Although humble and unassuming, Thom Sirivattha is a master at the top of his craft. From Hawai'i to the US mainland to Asia, Thom can be observed at his workbench, hand engraving everything from fine gold or silver rings and bangles to steel valve covers for classic car engines.
The next time you are in the neighborhood or visiting the Lahana booth at a trade show, stop and look. Take a good look. The first thing you will notice is the sparkle that can only be coaxed from metal that is cut, not burned with a laser. The next thing you may notice is the texture. Hand engraving makes deep, well-defined details that your fingertips will appreciate. Then, there's the beauty of the pieces themselves. Each one of Thom's designs may be seen as a journey that begins with an idea, which goes to a sketchbook, which goes to a custom blank and ultimately to the engraver's bench.
Finally - and we actually hope there is nothing final about our meeting - you will enjoy a host of additional services. Thom and co. will custom engrave a name, date or special word on the inside or back surface your piece. Resizing and cleaning are also available in the future should you need them.
Lahana Jewelry is not just about our craft, but your pride and satisfaction as well.
