Nature Art Gallery in Haad Rin is owned by Micha and his partner Shai who want to share their multitude of years experience, research, knowledge, and application of earth stones and their known benefits on your body and mind.
History has always shown us, that the wise ones of Ancient times knew to attune themselves to their specific Natural Earth Stone, which as you know, was always fitted to their body, in true Natural Art.
For many years now their stores on Koh Phangan and Samui have offered truly remarkable varieties of custom jewellery, featuring silver, gold and semi precious stones as well as a fine selection of other handcrafted items which are a must see.
When we visited the store, we were warmly welcomed by Hanit the manager who is very charismatic, knowledgeable and extremely well trained in this domain. As we enjoyed further conversation with her we discovered Hanit is also certified in shiatsu, what an extraordinary combination for knowledge, knowing how the energy in the body flows and knowing which Natural Earth stone to select for your individual specific needs.
Hi Hanit, so tell us how you came to be on Koh Phangan…
I came three years ago but I have already known Koh Phangan for fifteen years now.
I wasn’t travelling and then fell in love, I was already in love and I still love the area of Haad Rin.
I now know more about stones and crystals and feel the energy of them, yes I am the main sales woman but I am also involved in the design at Nature Art Gallery.
What is the concept?
We have been open for eighteen years and have two shops in Samui also. The shop is focused on the stones, we are experts in them.
The good thing is that you can choose stones and make jewelry or chose something that is already made and the atmosphere in here is really nice, it’s a nice place.
It’s beautiful in the evening with all of the lights and everyone can find something here.
I love to work in a crystal shop, you may feel like you want to wear something different every day without even knowing why, that’s the power of the crystals.
You see people go back to a certain piece after looking at others and I can help them to find what they need, I love it.
So what kinds of jewelry do you have?
We have many different kinds of jewelry that we make and also work with a few designers, a silversmith and goldsmith from Nepal, they are experts and Nepal is the best in the world for this.
We combine silver and stone, gold ad stone and have other stuff like macrame and leather, most of the work in the shop is handmade.
If we buy something then we chose the very best or if we make something then we ourselves do our best. Our style is a certain style which I don’t know how to describe exactly so people will have to come and see.
Everyone can find something, we have prices which range from 100 Baht to 50,000 Baht and things for women, men and children.
What makes you unique?
The handmade aspect, if you have a design then you can come and we will sit with you and help to make it.
Eighty percent of the shop is one of a kind and we have a silversmith in our back room, everyone can come here and create a design. If you have your dream and a stone then we can make your jewelry.
What is special for you with stones?
Every stone has a certain energy, it doesn’t matter which part of the world a stone comes from, they all have their particular thing. It is huge as they are good for healing and protection.
They can really change your life!
We have one special stone, Moldavite, that is the product of a meteor collision with earth, which some people cannot even wear as it is very powerful.
It is amazing, it is for working on your life and speeds up spiritual evolution. But if you don’t know what you want to ask the stone then it can send you somewhere you did not plan, you need to work with the stone and ask properly.
What are your particular stones Hanit?
I love pearls, the energy of the ocean, one of the most important things for me on this island is to see the ocean every day, I wear pearls all the time.
Also I love Amazonite, from the moment I saw it for the first time, it is a light blue stone, the colour of the ocean. I change all the time but these are the main ones.
And what are the plans for the rest of the year?
We are always working on new collections and design, getting new stones and visiting big exhibitions in Hong Kong for example as we like to know what is going on.
We want to make the best, have the shop looking good and to keep our own style but be in the know and checking what is new.
Nature Art Gallery stands already strongly on Koh Phangan and we have customers coming back every year to make jewelry as they appreciate the quality of our stuff but we will always try to be better.
What is the Nature Art Gallery philosophy?
Sharing the love of the stones, your feelings are connected to the ground, we believe in nature and try to be part of it and respect it, that’s very important to us.
WE INVITE YOU TO VISIT OUR SHOP AND LET THE STONE CHOOSE YOU!
