Beautiful hand polished chunks of wood with tiger stripe grains in deep brown hues interspersed with delicate colour coordinated shell.
Calling this a "Wood and Shell Stick Bracelet" does it no justice. It should be in a Chloe handbag store as an accessory with no price on it (if you have to ask you can't afford it).
Origins: Made by village artisans in Indonesia
Materials: Wood & shell
The fair trade jewellery and handicrafts bought from Indonesia are all village produced.
One village will tend to specialize in a certain craft e.g. some concentrate on silver, others bead work, others wood carving or bamboo work.
The communities are continually producing new designs to add to their collections.
Our supplier supports the development of their craft by paying a fair price to enable the artisans to source new materials and tools. He personally visits these small family businesses and maintains regular contact.
