This sterling silver bilum pendant has been beautifully detailed to capture the woven texture of the bilums. The pendant measures 35 x 38mm.
The Bilum is an important aspect to the Papua New Guinean culture and people. For many women in Papua New Guinea the Bilum is a chance for them to earn a living. They hand weave the bilums using natural fibres and often use natural dyes to make them bright before selling them in local markets.
