This piece showcases the intricate art of filigree (curved silver wire) and pin (spheres) technique. At the front is a Barong style mask made up of Topaz eyes, Garnet nose and an Amethyst mouth. The Barong is a Mythical creature from Balinese Culture and is used in traditional ceremonial dance as the symbol of health and good luck.
All of the unique work is rope bordered with plain polished silver towards each end of the cuff. The bangle tapers in size for a comfortable fit. It is also adjustable. All of the silver work has been oxidised and polished to give an "antique" effect which enables the filigree detailing to stand out from the piece.
A timeless, traditionally styled piece that will look beautiful for many years to come.
