Abstract


The purpose of this research was threefold. The first objective was to analyze the community context and the existing design process for cultural silver jewelry around the communities of the Si Satchanalai Historical Park, Sukhothai Province. This was followed by the development of a future design process. Finally, an evaluation on the level of satisfaction with the new design process was conducted. The research instruments included an in-depth interview, a non-participatory observation, the focus group discussion, questionnaire, seminars and displays. The procedure of developing the future design process for cultural silver jewelry included: (1) finding solutions for problems, (2) creating new design concepts, (3) sketching, and (4) prototyping. The future new design process resulted in reducing the production costs. Evaluation of the future design process also involved several aspects: the features, the concept, and the prototyping. The findings confirmed the highest level of satisfaction on the silver jewelry as rated by the community sages for the Devious Collection at 95 per cent.
