You might be able to guess the meaning of the Bahasa Indonesia word "dekorasi" and see why I chose it for the name of this beautiful artisan carved bone cabochon.

Yes, it's "decoration" and this piece would make a stand-out pendant or a very special embellishment on a scrapbook page.

From time to time I also have this design available as an earring pair in a separate listing. Just type 'Dekorasi' into the search engine above and you should be able to find it if I have it in stock. Otherwise please convo me.

BACK STORY
Crafting beautiful ornaments from stone, wood, animal bone and shell is a time-honoured tradition among many of the world's cultures, including the diverse ethnic groups scattered through the Indonesian archipelago.

Carving skills have been handed down through the generations and seem almost inherent in one of those groups, the Balinese.

Delicately hand-carved pieces of soft volcanic paras stone adorn the many temples, palaces and other buildings throughout the island.

Magnificent wood carvings also feature in the architecture and there are some amazing carved wood statues and pieces of furniture produced for the tourist trade.

On a smaller scale are the jewelry pieces and other little ornaments carved with intricate detail from organic materials such as bone, a sturdy and versatile material that is durable enough to craft a treasured heirloom.

The bone used in Indounik cabochons is from cattle and is sourced from neighbouring Java where it is a bi-product of food production.

The piece listed here was carved in the village of Tampaksiring, home of Bali 's best carvers of bone, horn and shell.

“Within every block of wood and stone, there dwells a spirit, waiting to be released. Direct carving is a way of freeing the spirit - my own and that of the stone or wood." ~ Hap Hagood, Member of the Artists for Conservation Foundation.
