Item details

We Are Golden is a heavenly carved mother of pearl shell wing pendant bead that looks as if it's been crafted by the gods here on the magical island of Bali, Indonesia.

Be it a bird's wing or that of an angel, its appeal lies in the detail of its carving, done by a Balinese artisan, and it's rich golden yellow all natural markings, contrasting with the lovely white shell beneath.

Charged with good nacreous irridescence, this beautifully carved piece could well serve to remind you of Coco Chanel's maxim: “If you were born without wings, do nothing to prevent them from growing.”

There's a 1mm hole drilled at the top through which you can attach a finding. It's carved one side only.

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

PayPal is my preferred method of payment if it's convenient for you.

BACK STORY
If you love our feathered friends then you might like to visit or even volunteer on Nusa Penida, an small island just off Bali that's been transformed into a bird sanctuary that is pivotal in saving the critically endangered Bali Starling.

The sanctuary is run by the Balinese non-profit Friends of National Parks Foundation which also runs the Bali Wildlife Rescue Center in Tabanan, and works to preserve wildlife habitat in Kalimantan, Borneo.

You can also visit the Bali Bird Park, home to one of the world's finest collections of Indonesian birds.

The park is set in two hectares of landscaped botanical gardens, including more than 2000 tropical plants.

The Park plays a key role in protecting and conserving Indonesia’s endangered birdlife, including the Bali starling.
