Item details

This tropical leaf pair in carved bone has been crafted in life-like textured detail, and may be used for earrings or as decorative jewelry findings.

Carved both sides, they were crafted for Indounik in Bali where an abundance of lush tropical vegetation provides plenty of inspiration for the island's many talented artists and artisans.

These pieces are not drilled.

If you prefer, I also have these leaves in sets of two that both curl to the left and you'll find that listing here -

BACK STORY
Indonesia has the second largest biodiversity in the world, after the Amazon rainforests. Sadly, deforestation is a major problem in this developing nation.

Ironically, global demand for palm oil is fuelling this deforestation. Indonesia is the world's leading supplier of palm oil which is used for bio-fuels, cooking and cosmetics.

For all of that, Indonesia also has a rich history of plant study and conservation through its network of botanic gardens – the Kebun Raya Indonesia. There are three gardens in Java and one in Bali that make up the KRI.

Of them, the Bogor Botanical Garden, 60km south of the capital, Jakarta, is Indonesia's first and foremost botanic garden, having been founded in 1817.

If you are going to Bali on holidays and would like a different experience, check out Tri Hita Karana Bali Foundation's website for details of its Introduction to Permaculture courses - http://www.thkbali.org/THK.html

In Bahasa Indonesia, the word for leaf is daun. The word for garden is kebun.

Nature will bear the closest inspection. She invites us to lay our eye level with her smallest leaf, and take an insect view of its plain. ~ Henry David Thoreau
