Bali collection - unity in diversity

Indonesia is considered one of the world's capitals of handicrafts. Local traditions were born even before Christ, thanks to Chinese, Indo-Chinese, Muslim and Hindu influences. The original bronze creations, decorative textiles and woven fabrics, silver and gold jewelry are a source of delight. But designer Anna Oska, settling on a small family farm near Ubud on the island of Bali, had a very different technique in mind.

The natural inspiration for the Bali collection came from sculptures. The mythical figures of good and evil spirits, present on every corner and guarding local homes, gates, squares and streets, were also featured in the original ethnic jewelry collection.

The motto of the Indonesian islands, proclaiming unity in diversity, is particularly apt in this corner of the world, not only because of Indonesia's extraordinary cultural and ethnic diversity, but also because of the stunning abundance of nature there. Life in Bali takes place amidst magnificent greenery and lush vegetation, with a rhythm set by animals. It is their influence that can be seen most strongly in the jewelry designs created in Bali. Miniature black and white sculptures have taken the forms of beaks and claws, fish fins, shark tusks, bird and buffalo skulls. The jewelry resembles talismans, amulets and small modern totems.

All the pieces were hand-carved on the island, and then went to the artist's studio in Poznań, where ORSKA jewelers turned them into a limited jewelry collection. Each piece is unique and impresses with its intricate workmanship. The local artists who co-created them have spent a lifetime perfecting the technique of carving miniature sculptures, developing incredible precision and patience. Each object that comes out of their hands is the result of many hours of meticulous work. Such skills are passed down from generation to generation, like a special philosophy of life.
