A feeling of belonging motivated me to add the Garnet Amulets, which I first created one year ago, to this new collection. Because of the warm tone of the Hessonite Garnet and the beaded setting, it reminded me of Indonesian Batik. These fabrics are carefully painted by hand with dotted and lined patterns. Making Batik is not only a physical activity, it has a deeper dimension which contains prayer, hope, and lessons. Therefore many batik motifs carry symbolic meaning.
The Garnet Amulet comes on a 45 cm/ 18 inch silver necklace.
Dance of the Barong
For this new collection I explored the wondrous world of Indonesian mythology and their ritualistic ways of storytelling. Delicate dance movements and shadow plays, accompanied by Gamelan music, pass on the rich legends and history to new generations. The most popular theme is ‘good versus evil’ and it offers a unique combination of ritual, lesson and entertainment.
Inspired by everything I discovered during this journey I created a collection of jewels, each meant to tell a small part of the folklore mixed with my personal style and love for storytelling.
