Silver String Bilum Pendant
This wonderful sterling silver pendant is that of a woven string bilum design form Papua New Guinea. The dimensions of the Bilum are 45mm x 35mm and it has been beautifully detailed with a pattern that can be found on the bilums of Papua New Guinea. The beautiful Bilums that come for Papua New Guinea are often hand woven by the people themselves out of fibres or wool. The wool bilums are naturally dyed vibrant and magnificent colours while the fibre bilums are often left with their lovely natural colour. The Bilum is a beautiful bag that many women in Papua New Guinea sell to make a livelihood. This pendant is inspired by these gorgeous bags and their wonderful petters.
