Introduce the compassionate bodhisattva’s enigmatic smile to your hectic workday with the Bayon Face Silver Cufflinks. Inspired from the famous Bayon temple in Angkor, commonly dubbed “the face temple”. Built in the 12th century, all 54 towers of this incredible temple are adorned with 216 gigantic faces of the compassionate bodhisattva, Avalokitesvara, smiling over visitors at every angle. Handcrafted in sterling silver, hammered and punched to create the requisite relief, then polished to a soft sheen.

Garden of Desire offers a collection of contemporary jewellery, designed by Ly Pisith and handmade in silver by him and his team of craftsmen. His pieces are made from 955 fine silver, 925 sterling silver and semi-precious stones. Born in Cambodia, Pisith fled to France during the war, where he grew up and built a career as a product designer for major brands such as Alain Mikli and Starck. A career move then took him to Singapore where he met his wife and business partner Agnes Lim. In 2007, Pisith returned to Cambodia and a year later, Garden of Desire was born, founded by Pisith and Agnes.
