The legendary artistry of the Majapahit Kingdom inspires the design of these earrings by Ni Wayan Astiti. Flourishing in East Java, Majapahit kings ruled Bali from 1343 to 1515, bringing Hindu influence over the island. The earrings are crafted by hand with sterling silver. Reminiscent of the shields worn by Majapahit warriors, the earrings are centered with 22k gold plated accents.
.925 Sterling silver.
Ni Wayan Astiti has received 3 microcredit loans with 0% interest from Kiva and Novica, the first for $600 and the most recent for $1000. Proceeds were used to purchase of more natural gemstones and sterling silver to continue production.
This artist uses traditional techniques handed down through the generations and/or creates culturally significant items, helping keep these traditions alive.
