Indonesia has many beautiful beaches, some of them being black sand beaches- “pasir hitam”. This necklace was inspired by the black sand beaches you can find scattered all throughout Indonesia. Many locals gather every evening at these black sand beaches and bury their bodies under the sand and use it at as “scrub” for their skin. The black sand beaches are very popular among the locals here. We hope this necklace reflects the uniqueness and popularity of the black sand beaches.
The Beads: A combination of 9 beads, 2 unique colors and 5 different sizes. The paint we use is the highest quality water based paint that will ensure a long lasting color and quality. The largest bead is 2.5cm and the smallest bead is 1cm. Each hand drilled, sanded, painted and assembled.
The Cord: We use a local soft leather cord.
Many artisans are involved in this necklace from the cutting down of the tree, to drilling the beads all the way to completion! Make sure you check out the artisans page to hear more about the creators behind your beautiful necklace.
