After experimenting for two years, Thailand's Danai developed unique electroplating techniques. He states, "...my partner's father suggested that we...create something representative of the area, and we came up with the idea of covering natural products such as exotic flowers and plants with gold." He presents a stunningly beautiful stickpin adorned with a gold-flashed Ascocentrum hybrid orchid with a resin coating. The flower is attached to a 22k gold-plated brass stickpin which closes with a gold-flashed cap.
Please note that because natural flowers are used, no two pins will look exactly the same.

Danai believes in opportunity, especially for anyone interested in the arts. Since he first began to explore his unique art form, he has given work to those who might experience difficulties with finding work elsewhere, among them, the profoundly deaf and those with limited sight. He has also nurtured the interest of very young students, providing them with the opportunity to observe his process and eventually employing them while they studied at the university.
Danai has created natural flower jewelry for 30 years. Some of his original workers are still with him. Today, he provides work for people who range in age from 20 to over 60.
