Description

Named Tri Hita Karana for the three paths to well-being that Balinese people strive to follow through their lives, this unusual artisan-carved bone pendant would make a stunning piece of statement jewelry.

Crafted exclusively for Indounik in Bali, Indonesia, using a specially developed ethnic design, it's been double drilled with 1mm holes in each of the top corners, as shown in my photos. You'll need to source your own findings to make it ready-to-wear.

The design features a spectacular wave surrounded by a traditional Balinese motif known as patra punggel.

The piece that you are purchasing is the one shown in these photos.

Bali, predominantly Hindu, is home to Indonesia's best carvers of bone, shell, horn, wood and stone.

Bone is a sturdy and versatile material that is durable enough to produce a treasured heirloom. It has been used for thousands of years to make jewelry, buttons and other adornments.

Worn against the skin over time, it will absorb the natural oils from your body and turn a golden colour.

AT A GLANCE
Size: Approx 43mm (L) x 33mm (W) – 1.69in (L) x 1.29in (W)
Thickness: Approx 3mm
Weight: Approx 6 grams
Pieces per pack: 1

BACK STORY
Tri Hita Karana refers to the three paths to life balance and well being - maintaining harmony with your fellow human beings, maintaining harmony with your god, and maintaining harmony with nature.

The Balinese endeavour to live by these life principles in a complex belief system that is rooted in their religion – Agama Hindu Dharma – that has evolved from the ancient Indian Hindu religion, from Buddhism and from pre-existing animist beliefs, including ancestor worship.

The religion is part of the very fibre of the life of most Balinese and they make ritual offerings to the gods several times a day. They also make offerings to agricultural deities and to spirits they believe occupy sacred trees and rocks.

Ritual slaughter of animals for religious offerings is a fact of life in Bali. After the essence of an offering has gone to the gods, the food is consumed by family and friends.

Roast suckling pig, known as babi guling, is a particular favourite of the Balinese.
