In My Name Silver studio and workshop artist in residence at Baby Elephant Boutique Hotel in Siem Reap, Cambodia

In My Name Silver

Silversmith Claire McKenzie and her apprentice Srey Neap are together In My Name Silver. They have now settled in as our first artists in residence. In My Name Silver is running two-hour silversmithing workshops at Baby Elephant – in which you can learn to make your very own sterling silver band ring.

Claire and Srey Neap also take commissions for silver jewellery lovingly handmade and designed from a specially chosen range of Khmer words – the perfect memento to remind you of your time in Cambodia, or as a gift for a loved one.
