The Heart of the Barong with Sunstone represents the soul of this new collection! The Barong is the king of the spirits and a symbol of good fortune. He is also the guardian of the forest and one of the most remarkable subjects in native Balinese dance. The ‘Dance of the Barong’ illustrates his battle against evil. Spoiler alert: He always wins!
The heart shaped design is influenced by the richly decorated masks used to portray the Barong. This piece captures his spirit as your personal guardian.
This design comes in two different stone options, Opal and Sunstone. You may choose your desired gemstone from the dropdown menu below!
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.
