“In Thailand I have Buddhism and in Los Angeles I have Rock N’ Roll.” This is the mantra of Chuck Thanalertvisuti, owner of Deific Jewelry, who has overcome hardship and heartbreak to become the designer of a hauntingly beautiful exclusive jewelry line. Clearly Deific’s jewelry is a labour of love with every piece entirely handcrafted, keeping alive the dying art of wax molding.
The designs come from the journey of Chuck's life which has focused on understanding and experiencing inspiring beliefs from revered cultures around the world. Being a hybrid of Thai and American, with a keen eye for expressing his encompassing worldview through the lens of artwork, Chuck's designs feature both a spiritual romantic vision of the East and a fearless unyielding perspective of the West. Inspired by Aristotle’s philosophy of dialectics that draws tension between opposing perspectives to create insight, the design approach combines elements of high-octane Western lifestyles with the forbidden Eastern world of faith and spirituality to set his designs apart.
