"Ibu Pertiwi is the Mother Nature of Indonesia… This unique collection of jewelry is inspired by travel, long lost cultures, and the desire to preserve Mother Nature's gifts."
"Contemporary style meets primitive design in this environmentally conscious collection of statement jewelry. Natural materials are found on land or washed up from the sea — bamboo, sea glass, coconut shell, bone and horn. Combined sparingly with sterling silver, bamboo becomes a one-of-a-kind ring, tumbled sea glass becomes a simple and elegant pendant, shells become stamps that create patterns in clay.
"Ibu Pertiwi is the Mother Nature of Indonesia, personifying land and sea, who kindly supplies our materials and inspiration.
"This unique collection of jewelry is inspired by travel, long lost cultures, and the desire to preserve Mother Nature's gifts.
