The silversmith of Siamese and/or Thai jewelry is special and appealing. Siamese silver found today in the collectible market is mostly "niello" or "nielloware" style, created by carving out areas of the silver and baking a sulfur/metals powder in the carved out areas. The design often displays Mekkala, the Goddess of Lightning, and represents the Thai version of Ramayana, an ancient Sanskrit epic from a Hindu religious tale, which had a profound impact on art and culture of Thailand.
