    Tribal and Ethnic Jewellery in Seminyak

    0

    Inside this fascinating little boutique on one corner of Seminyak’s Jalan Petitenget, you’ll find tribal and ethnic styled jewellery pieces designed by Bali-based Kiwi, Rabia Bullough. Think Borneo, with the tattooed tribal jungle women wearing unique golden lobe plugs or ‘tunnels’.

    There are pieces inspired by these styles in store with contemporary touches, from gold-plated teardrop-shaped lobe plugs with white topaz, to peculiar Chinese ear weights dotted with black resin. Minimalist selections include plain gold and brass plugs designed in hollow, star, lotus and hexagonal shapes.

  • There are many other interesting pieces in Rabia’s collection for those who aren’t so keen on an unconventional look. Necklaces and a great range of rings, earrings and bracelets in brass, gold and silver will delight ladies – some of them go well with any outfit, adding a bit of dazzle to casual or evening wear.     

    As you browse further, you will see that the designs are inspired by ethnic jewellery from all over the globe. Rabia’s life inspirations that reflect in her works started on her 21st birthday visit to her mother in India, a place that opened her eyes to a more free-spirited, nomadic lifestyle. She embarked on a decade of adventure and non-stop travel around the world covering Asia and Europe, before eventually slowing down and settling in Bali, where she started applying her designs and opened business.

    India-inspired pieces include the ‘malas’ (Hindu prayer garlands), such as the Rudrashka combi necklace that combine stone beads, smokey quartz, brass and silver components in various shapes e.g. skulls and snake vertebrae – all appended with colourful, fluffy tassels. Its traditional 108-bead mala knotted silk thread, finished with Turquoise beads and gold, look good complementing a blouse, as well as on your room wall or bed end.

    Incorporating healing crystals and gemstones into her work of art, Rabia presents her pieces with a bit of New Age quirkiness, bringing positive vibes to its wearer. Onyx enhances your balance; moonstone brings harmony to your emotional state, rose quartz enhances love and affection, and turquoise gives you protection. Items that would easily be deemed as collector’s items include neck pieces and bracelets from intricately carved bone and horn, and wooden items studded with turquoise, malachite and shimmering mother-of-pearl.
