Item details

Imagine this beautiful white flower, styled on a hibiscus, set against a tropical tan.

This carved bone cabochon, crafted for Indounik in Bali, would make a perfect centrepiece in an island-inspired necklace.

To the Balinese, the flower featured in this listing is pucuk. It's known as kembang sepatu in the Indonesian language.

Please note that this listing is for one piece only.

PayPal is my preferred method of payment.

Shipping: This item will ship from Bali via Pos Indonesia registered mail with a tracking number, and you will almost certainly need to sign for it upon delivery. It will be well packaged to protect it in transit, and the cost of the pack will be included in my shipping fee. I'm happy to combine shipping if you'd like to get better value for money. I refund on shipping overpayments in excess of $1.

BACK STORY:
Tropical flowers are in bountiful supply in Bali and it's just as well because several times a day, they are used in ritual offerings to the gods.

Flower petals fill the little woven palm trays called canang that are devotedly set down on thresholds and alters all across the island. Under a cloud of incense and a sprinkle of holy water, the essence of the offering is wafted skywards by graceful fingers clasping a frangipani blossom.

In Bahasa Indonesia, the word for flower is bunga. Frangipani flower is bunga jepun. Bougainvillea, also in plentiful supply for offerings, is known as bunga kertas – paper flower.
