Jasmine buds cascade with graceful beauty in a handcrafted necklace by Marie Pang. She works with cotton batik fabric underscored by vintage green, white and blue. The main motif is the truntum or jasmine bud, usually worn by the parents of the bride and groom. The waterfall necklace features beads carved from dark albesia wood.
Pang supports the work of the Javanese Batik Lovers Community in Jogjakarta, whose members are mostly women from Giriloyo, renowned as batik makers, especially for the nobles of the past.
Please expect slight variations in color and motif as the batik is a handcrafted process with natural dyes.
