This 19cm long bracelet is made from sterling silver and is an oval belcher bracelet that sits elegantly around the wrist. Attached to this bracelet are 5 bilum charms from Papua New Guinea. The bilum is an elegant bag that traditionally the women use to carry around food, clothes, materials, and even their children. The bilums are hand woven by Papua people out of materials such as grasses or wool and are often colourfully dyed using natural materials. Bilums are a beautiful and useful accessory that many women in Papua New Guinea make so that they may earn money. This bracelet pays tribute to both those wonderful women and the beautiful bilums they weave.
