********The flower motif in the silver jewelry, Dok Pi-Khune*********
As the wearing of intricately designed silver jewelry was probably only affordable to the high-born, it would not be far-fetched to assume that the first pieces of silver jewelry with the “dok pi-khune” design were made by Lao silver artisans for the women of the royal household, and later also made for the women of the aristocracy. According to my silversmith, the design was not called “dok pi-khune”, but traditionally the Lao referred to this kind of design as the “ki-khep” design. Ki-khep” in Lao means centipede, and when a customer in Laos asks for something made in the “ki-khep” design, the silversmith will make the silver motif which is today called “dok pi-khune”.
