Komang Rupawan of Bhakti Senang Hati crafts a pair of pendant necklaces rich with heartfelt sentiment. The half-heart pendants are carved by hand from sono wood and suspended on cotton cords of adjustable length. Wear both, or give one to your sweetheart as a token of your love.
Bhakti Senang Hati was founded and is run by people with physical challenges who provide a special service for the physical challenged in Bali. Non-profit organizations are important in Indonesia, as government funding for handicapped people is limited. "My late father said although I'm handicapped I must be a self-sufficient person," says artisan Komang Rupawan. "I was sick because of poliomyelitis since I was only 3 months; that's why my leg weakened and made me crawling when I had to move. One day, my neighbor who often carry me to look around was create a crutch for me from wood. From that day I learn to walk with the crutch and can go to school. I joined Bhakti Senang Hati Foundation in 2003 and met my wife, who had an accident and causing her leg amputated. We have 3 boys now."
I love this craft. My darling fiance loved it so much and we both rock it everywhere we go. Compliments don't stop. Shipping was on point and on time. 100% Certified
