Details

Buana crafts an enchanting amulet necklace, combining cultured pearl and gleaming silver. It frames a portrait of Barong, meticulously carved by hand in bone. Also known as Bhoma, he represents the goodness that destroyed the evil Rangda. His adventures are reenacted in the form of a dance and his image is also hung on doors in Bali to ward off evil spirits.

"Jewelry with something extra"

Instead of a lovely sleepy moon, this is an intricate representation of Bhoma smiling around his tusks......not only a beautiful piece of jewelry, but it makes me feel like I have a protective buddy on board.

"Pretty"

These are very pretty earrings, but I had to return them because they were too heavy for my earlobes. If you have stronger earlobes than mine, these area great find.

"Beautiful but weak connection"

The piece is wonderfully carved and has what looks like a real gemstone but where it comes apart, the physics are not there for a tight closure.
